This Cameraman Cleaned his Lens at the Wrong Moment

If you're going to send it big, it's generally a good idea to be sure things are dialed in with the cameraman. Especially if you’re going to huck something as massive as Jonathan Jean did on his snowmobile.

Rightfully hooting and hollering after clearing such terrifying gap, Jean finds the rest of his crew a little less celebratory. Their awkward silence is broken with the shout of what no professional athlete wants to hear: “Nobody shot it”.

Ouch. That probably hurt more for the Canadian than if he had actually ate it on the landing. Not to fear, watch as the snowmobiler courageously takes one for the team, and hits the jump once again. This time with the cameraman actually behind lens instead of cleaning it. 

PLEASE no more oil burnin’, noise making,  pollution generating, assholes riding snow mobiles in the back country.  This is crap.
