If you do a quick search on the ol' YouTubes, you can find a boatload of loading fail videos. ATVs, tractors, jet skis, motorcycles. You name it. If the vehicle exists, there's probably at least a dozen videos of someone loading it into a truck horribly and embarrassingly wrong.
Now, typically, the person responsible for an epic loading blunder won't upload their own fail video. Usually, it's a buddy, a cousin, or even a spouse with a particularly harsh sense of humor that will be the one to post said video on the world wide web for all to see. But, for his own lawn tractor loading fail, YouTuber Rex4x4 decided to wolf down a massive helping of humble pie and show the world himself exactly where he went wrong. Enjoy!

In the description portion of his YouTube channel, Rex describes himself as an enthusiast of "motorcycles, go-karts, mini bikes, lawn tractors, 4x4s, cars, 4 wheelers, outdoors and other random stuff." With that in mind, that probably wasn't the first time he tried loading a lawn tractor into his truck. But, hey, it must've just been an extremely off day for ol' Rex.
At least our guy was able to have a sense of humor about the whole thing. Not only do we get a look at the fail at regular speed, but he also backs it up and shows the screwup AGAIN in slow motion. Hilarious!
It's certainly not lost on anyone -- the viewers of the video and Rex himself -- that this whole incident could've ended way worse. Having an entire tractor land on top of you can't feel all that great. Thankfully, Rex was able to dust himself off and push the tractor into the truck bed. Plus, he managed to get nearly a half million views out of the whole thing. Every cloud has a silver lining, am I right?
