My Sides Hurt And I Can't Breathe

That's not usually what you want to read, I'll admit, but don't worry!  It's entirely self-inflicted.  To begin with, I need to explain a little of what's going on here.  I dunno if any of you play Rainbow Six: Siege?  I don't, but I've seen a ton of gameplay footage thanks to the good folks over at Bo Time! Gaming.  I've mentioned them before... they're the geniuses behind the War Thunder Fail Montages.  Anyway, they have like fifty RS:S vids, and after watching them I know that I'll never play the game.  Not my cuppa, y'know?  Doesn't mean that I don't enjoy watching them play, though.  Bo & Co. seem to be quite good... except when they're doing very weird things.  "I am pushing little cart" leaps to mind.  Anyway, from there it was a short distance to finding various RS:S Fail Vids.  Again, I don't play, but funny is funny.  Along the way, I discovered a youtube channel named GameSprout... for reasons, I guess.  Their stuff has been uniformly entertaining, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny.  So what does all this have to do with me suffocating?  One of the best things about GameSprout is their tendency to put sound clips over their fail vids.  It might be a simple spoken "tah-dah", a record scratch, or something complex... all for the sake of a gag.  Now, if you've ever played a multiplayer FPS game, you've undoubtedly come across the sight of someone rapidly crouching, then standing up, then crouching again, ad infinitum.  This is teabagging, and it's usually quite a rude gesture.  In games such as these, however, there's often no way to "make contact" with players on the other team, so if you're into opening lines of communication, you have to make do with what's available.  Crouching, swaying from side to side, turning rapidly as a head-shake "no", that sort of thing.  GameSprout loves working this activity into their videos, usually accompanied by a "yep" sound.  For whatever reason, I've always chuckled when I've seen/heard it.  And then this video was released a couple of weeks ago:

The money bit is from 7:57 to 8:17 (with another short clip breaking it up).  Go ahead and watch, I'll wait.

Done?  Okay, cool.  For whatever reason, that little stretch of video makes me laugh so hard I have problems breathing, tears roll down my face, so on and so forth.  I mean, first the contact with the opposing team in the airplane, then they join in, and all of them get their own "yep"s... then in the second part, the "yep"s get more and more frantic.  That's what usually gets me, the frantic yepping all over the place.  Laughter like I haven't had in a long time, that's what that is.

And now you know.
