Don't call it a comeback!

The "Skate" series of video games have been a wildly successful franchise for the Sony PS3. Legend has it however that before "Skate 3" came out, the designers didn't properly field test the game. As a result there were some insane and hilarious glitches in the game. This video is a compilation of one gamer's most bizarre glitches. Even if you don't like skating or video games, this video is friggan hilarious. Check it out.

With the limited amount of 3D theory that we possess, it's fun to imagine what is causing these problems. In some areas it appears that the gravity is applied differently to different surfaces. What makes this video so funny to me is that it's designed to look as real as possible and yet the physics of the world are not only extraordinary, but totally unpredictable. There's a constant shattering of the suspension of disbelief.
