â†µThat’s an excellent use of the “WARGH” effect at the end there. Here to help explain the “WARGH” -- a phenomenon that without which, the internet could not survive -- is Spencer Hall. â†µ
â†µThe WARGH is an internet necessity you're intimately familiar with whether you know it or not. It's the slow motion replay of a painful/embarrassing face plant, fall, crash, or other high-speed accident involving someone inadvisedly putting themselves into a very bad situation involving hard objects, gravity, and their fragile bones. â†µâ†µ
â†µFor fans of internet pain, the WARGH is truly essential. As funny as that kid on rollerblades completely missing the ramp and landing on the bridge of his nose was initially, on the second time through it's even better in slow-motion with someone yelling "Ohhhhhhhh duuuuuuuuuuuuuuude" in super-slow speak, as if he or she's just inhaled a whole balloon full of sulfur hexafluoride. â†µâ†µ
â†µThe video below contains several textbook examples of the WARGH in action. Warning: the video contains several dragged out profanities said in very low tones. â†µâ†µ
â†µThe WARGH: amplifying internet funny since 1995. (Someday, it will be the topic of a Ph.D thesis, and we won't get a dime for naming its greatness. Damned skinflint academics.)â†µ
