A guy browsing in a British electronics store has now been gawked at by millions of people for what the retailer is calling the ultimate "customer fail," per CBS News. HBH Woolacotts uploaded a video to YouTube (currently boasting more than 3.3 million views) on Thursday that shows the man inadvertently turning a bunch of large-screen TVs into a set of dominoes. "If you think you're having a bad day, spare a thought for this poor customer at our St. Austell store," the retailer's Facebook page notes, and the video shows exactly what prompted this show of pity.

The man is seen crouching down to check out one of the big screens, which he then proceeds to accidentally knock over—which knocks over the one behind it, which causes the man to step back and knock over two more. Both the mortified customer and the shocked salesperson end up with their hands on their heads as they survey the damage, which the store estimates to be more than $6,000. Whoops. (Now you can see why flat-screen TVs could be dangerous to kids.)
