Wednesday (Jan. 14) marks the 25th anniversary of “America’s Funniest Home Videos'” premiere, which means a quarter century of making Americans laugh at other people’s mishaps over and over and over again.
Yes, it sounds bad when you say it like that, but, honestly, a good batch of videos featuring people falling on their faces is sometimes just what people need to put a smile on their own faces. And at least some of those people who fell, slammed into things, slipped or made a fool of themselves got paid for their pain, right?
In honor of host Tom Bergeron and his team — oh hey, Bob Saget — making it to their 25th anniversary, here is a collection of “AFV”s’ fails, flops and just plain-old funny kid clips to put you in a good mood.
