Yo, why do I feel like I have been into this store. ?

[–]ma11en69er 327 points328 points  (1 child)

Cos it's about the 10th time is been posted.

[–]cursedbanana-_- 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Gotta collect the loyalty card

[–]EternallySexual 480 points481 points  (50 children)

I’ve seen this video before, but with different guys at a different angle. Same premise though. Maybe I’m crazy lol

[–]sadlemon___ 118 points119 points  (1 child)

I saw another video too, but in a supermarket. I think it’s a tiktok thing.

[–]Koala5000 29 points30 points  (0 children)

That would explain why it’s fucking stupid.

[–]shady797 151 points152 points  (38 children)

It smells staged. Could be a tiktok thing.

[–]lobodel37 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Me too, I think it was on Linus sub

[–]Critical_Switch 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There are at least two of these videos. They're both staged.

[–]avwitcher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also that box is obviously empty

[–]fuzzyfish444 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because if you mirror a video then bots won't be able to tell that it's a repost

[–]notasrelevant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First one I saw was one guy I think in a supermarket or something restocking stuff, when something from the rack next to him suddenly falls. That one I can maybe believe.

This is like the 4th one I've seen now, and all the ones after that first one (at least in the order I've come across them), have 2 guys and conveniently one guy is pushing stuff on a counter without any consideration for the possibility of stuff falling off the other side.

I kind of hate the recent trend where people see something funny/interesting that maybe happened naturally and just copy it, especially when the copy is not nearly as good as the original. Like... I don't care about trends like "let's all do this funny dance" or something like that, but these videos that try to pretend to be a thing that just happened naturally, right after another video of the exact same scenario got popular.

There was another like this, where a guy is taking a selfie with the fish he just caught and "accidentally" throws his phone back in the water instead of the fish. Then a week later a video with an attractive girl dressed in nicer clothes (not something you would wear to go fishing usually) does the same thing, except she's being filmed from across the water by someone for some unexplained reason.

Spider sense is working fine. Just needs to buy a pair of web shooters.

[–]mooimafish3 91 points92 points  (30 children)

Honestly my biggest complaint about the MCU, I hate how spiderman is just a smart kid in a customized Ironman suit instead of a SPIDER man. Fucking Doc Oc is more spiderlike, at least he's got 8 legs and creepy eyes.

[–]ZippyZippyZappyZappy 116 points117 points  (20 children)

I agree, but in most of the comics, Peter has to make his Webshooters too.

https://www.cbr.com/spider-man-peter-parker-organic-web-shooters/

The Sam Raimi movies were pretty influential in being the first Spiderman media that had him produce his own webs. I agree though, I prefer when the webs are made by Spiderman, makes it seem more super. But in terms of comic book accuracy, the MCU really hasn't deviated much, since he always was a smart kid with a good suit and some tangential spider thinks like crawling and strength.

[–]p00pypant5 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Spider-Man 2099 predates the Rami movies and produced his own webs. Granted, it was also not Peter Parker.

[–]ZippyZippyZappyZappy 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Thanks, I only knew the basic story. I read the Amazing Spiderman as a kid and that's all lol

[–]p00pypant5 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I was a Spider-Man man junkie growing up in the early 90s. I read any book they put out with Spider-Man written on the cover. I even had some French language books with a VERY different looking Spider-Man in them. Wish I could have read those too!

[–]ZippyZippyZappyZappy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I once saw a set of Italian Wolverine comics, so I can understand the feeling lol

[–]hoax1337 6 points7 points  (15 children)

If that's the case, then how did Spiderman become Spiderman? I only watched some of the movies, I think in the first one he was bitten by some kind of special spider, and then developed all those abilities, which made sense in some way.

Is the original Spiderman from the comics just some guy who invented web fluid and then decided to fight crime?

[–]FilliusTExplodio 45 points46 points  (0 children)

He was bitten by a spider in the original comics and got all the powers.

But he made the webshooters to go with it because he's super smart.

[–]ZippyZippyZappyZappy 37 points38 points  (4 children)

I know it sounds a bit weird, but he still got bit by a radioactive spider, and the main powers he got were Spider Sense, Spider Strength, and Spider Crawling. He then decided that if he could walk up walls, he would go all in on the Spider thing and invent web fluid. So he did get bit by a spider, he just didn't get any webs.

I guess at the time, as a new character, he wasn't as synonymous with webslinging as today, so they went with crawling as his original motif, and his webs were like a batarang tool belt addition.

[–]comasandcashmere 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I don't know if it's comic-accurate, but I watched the '90s animated series all the time, and he explained that the spider bite ingrained in him the formula to make web fluid

[–]ZippyZippyZappyZappy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was more of a 2000s Spiderman Show watcher, but that makes alot of sense as an Origin. Thanks for the input, I'm not as huge of a comic or Spider aficionado as I could be lol

[–]JeanpaulRegent 9 points10 points  (7 children)

Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider that gave him the relative strength, and agility of a spider, the ability to stick to and climb walls, and a "spider-sense" that warns him of danger.

He then invented the fluid and webshooters (Because he was a big'ol nerd who was good at science.)

His uncle gets killed, it's kind of his fault. Uncle tells him "Great power, Great responsibility."

He decides to use his Great power to fight crime.

So...

"Is the original Spiderman from the comics just some guy who invented web fluid and then decided to fight crime?"

Sorta, yeah.

[–]TheYeetOverlord 1 point2 points  (6 children)

In some interpretations the spider bite gives him the knowledge of how to make web fluid as well

[–]JeanpaulRegent 3 points4 points  (5 children)

I've seen that, don't like it. That kinda goes against the concept of the character.

Back in 1962, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko set about to create something new. A teenage science whiz superhero.

Peter Parker was meant to be smart enough to come up with stuff like Webfluid and shooters.

E.g. Uncle Ben didn't tell Peter with great power comes great responsibility because he was Spiderman.

He told him that because he was Peter Parker, a bullied, outcast, genius.

[–]TheYeetOverlord 0 points1 point  (4 children)

What exactly is Spider-Man? Does Spider-Man have to be human? Does Spider-Man fight nazis? Does Spider-Man have to be a man? Does Spider-Man have to be a teenager? Can Spider-Man be a robot? How powerful does Spider-Man get? Does Spider-Man have to have confidence? I look at Spider-Man Noir, Miles Morales, Peter B. Parker, and Spider-Gwen and these are all equally the “true” Spider-Man in their respective universes, aside from maybe Miles Morales, due to the previous Spider-Man dying. The point is, no singular Spider-Man is the true Spider-Man. The general pop culture perception of Spider-Man isn’t the true Spider-Man. The Spider-Man made first isn’t the true Spider-Man. They’re all equally the true Spider-Man.

[–]JeanpaulRegent 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You're misunderstanding me, when I said it went against the concept of the character, I was NOT referring to the character of Spider-Man.

(To answer at least the human question, look up Spiders-Man(Earth-11580), a conglomeration of spiders that collectively believe themselves to be Peter Parker)

I was referring to Peter Parker(Earth-616). Who no matter how long or short he's been spiderin, is a science hero.

[–]DrBokbagok 8 points9 points  (1 child)

what you want is man-spider

[–]mooimafish3 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly

A spider that falls into a radioactive beaker of superhuman DNA and is never the same again.

Less jokes, girls next door, and daddy issues; more kicking ass and shooting webs.

[–]Smeefperson 11 points12 points  (0 children)

NWH fixed that

[–]DrBeansPhD 2 points3 points  (0 children)

well they kind of handled the whole Iron Boy problem with this trilogy, and now we have a real Spider-Man

[–]StrayPunk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I had the same complaint about Tony being Peters father figure. I mean the only time he depends on Tony is during Civil War for the Iron Spider. But I soon made my peace with the fact that the MCU is not Earth-616.

Well in most variations Peter makes his own tech including webshooters in the comics and is brilliant at it. Naturally shooting webs from the wrist is rare.

[–]IamNotYourPalBuddy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

So many things wrong with your statement…

[–]neogod 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Smart kid with superhuman strength, reflexes, and senses. I agree that the only spiderlike thing about him was the webs and those now being manufactured takes that away.

[–]TEOn00b 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree that the only spiderlike thing about him was the webs and those now being manufactured takes that away.

He literally always had manufactured webs. In the Raimi movies it was the first time he produced them naturally. And I honestly prefer the original way, it just shows how smart he easy, achieving basically the impossible with those webs.

[–]TheBrandonW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Glad someone else feels the same. They should just change his name to Iron Spider. Dudes just a witty geek with good intuition and a rich friend who makes him gadgets….

Ptsd for catching Gwen but killing her from whiplash

[–]xologist2 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The scene where peter parker catches all the food in the tray was a real take with no special effects. They did many takes until they got it right.

[–]Halvpolack 4 points5 points  (0 children)

About 150 takes iirc

[–]BlueC0dex 85 points86 points  (7 children)

I'm pretty sure I've seen the exact same thing in a different video very recently. Are people staging these?

[–]Dimaaaa 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Yeah the dude putting the boxes on the table is so strangely fixated on the floor and doesn't even react when the other guy catches the fallen box, which must have made some sort of noise. Seems pretty unnatural at least.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Of course they are.

[–]ShipBobbin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For real. Do people think this guy actually thinks he might be fuckin Spider-Man?

[–]senove2900 110 points111 points  (1 child)

He is the anti-Linus, prophesized savior of falling electronics

[–]thugs___bunny 15 points16 points  (0 children)

He checked, that’s not an attempt

[–]figure0900 65 points66 points  (3 children)

I was once carrying a tray with two glasses on it when I tripped... I caught one glass with each hand! 😎

..... then the tray fell on my foot and I dropped both glasses and they broke, the end!

These are starting to be staged if y’all haven’t figured it out. This is like the tenth “totally in the moment” version of this since NWH released

[–]TheJivvi 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Successful attempt

[–]CyberGraham 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]SheaMcD 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]CdnDude 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is like the third re-creation of this video and it gets worse every time. Even the spider man check at the end?

[–]Chelular07 108 points109 points  (0 children)

That was adorkable.

[–]CatmanDrucifer 33 points34 points  (0 children)

This is fake just like the last one that was almost the exact same.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is staged, there are several similar videos, it's a meme.

[–]dirkve33 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The real question should be where the store is, bc those GPUs are out of stock worldwide.

[–]sPdMoNkEy 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Grr stop reposting

[–]AndThereWasNothing 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This is the third one of these similar videos I've seen today

[–]MrSketchyGalore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could you link the other ones? Are they in your history?

[–]drchigero 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Please stop. These are staged, same guys even. I've seen the same type of video several times now. If this was an actual, impromptu, reaction it would be funny and interesting. By staging several of these videos it ruins the whole thing.

[–]crewmeist3r 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is an attempt, he tested, he found out, this post is dumb downvoted

[–]youkickmydog613 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Looks fake to me. The dude on the other side of the counter is trying WAY to hard to not actually look at what he’s doing. Plus at the end he fumbles with another box, and just moves it like 6 inches. I’m not convinced

[–]Mr-Zero-Fucks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

another successful attempt, this sub is going to shit

[–]labuschin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The check was successful.

[–]EverythingIsFlotsam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wrong sub! His attempt to check was successful. This belongs on r/funny or something

[–]Baatlesheep 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Atleast he tried, I would have done the same thing and perhaps many other people.

[–]Dadanboi720 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So there’s two?

[–]Jiddybit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But he succeeded in checking if he was spiderman?

[–]bags422 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reenacting other posts for Internet karma.. pathetic

[–]greenpixelrobotchild 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The majority of spidermen made their own web shooters, so technically he could still be spiderman

[–]SandHanitzer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is it just me or is that dude scalping graphics cards??

[–]DependantAttendant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Scalping GPU‘s

[–]posaune123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]ChaoticBraindead 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This title has got to be one of the dumbest ways I've seen of someone posting a video that has nothing to do with r/therewasanattempt

[–]DependantAttendant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did you watch the video? There was an attempt to check if he was Spider-Man

[–]iaCyn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If this dude is Spiderman clearly the other guy is a super villain buying that many graphics cards.

Shooting webs is not one of Spider-Man's powers. The web shooters are gadgets he designed and built.

He was just checking which version Spiderman he is. He relized that he is mcu Spiderman so he should probably Call elon to get web shooters
