Fort Worth, TX — Putting your hands over your eyes from incredible embarrassment can lead to temporary blindness, local man Frank Drury found out this Wednesday. “I was on YouTube, you know, like I usually am at work and I found this really embarrassing video,” he said. “I watched half of it and I put my hands over my eyes and pressed on them. I didn’t think anything bad was going to happen, you know?” Drury’s co-workers recall hearing him say “Oh my gaaaaawd.” When they arrived at the scene, they saw Drury with his hands over his eyes and an embarrassing video playing on the screen. “It was a pretty embarrassing video,” Thomas Steszewski said. “I think we all followed Frank in his second-hand embarrassment.” When the video ended, Drury looked up, but something terrible happened. “I can’t see!” Steszewski recalled Drury saying. Drury, in a state of panic, rubbed his eyes. “I was scared, you know? I thought I was getting diabetes or something.” Drury said. “Thankfully, I could see again after all these little stars cleared up. I guess I shouldn’t watch embarrassing videos anymore, you know?” Drury’s YouTube history revealed that he continued to watch more fail videos. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
