Have you ever been in a situation where you thought you were going to come out on top, but celebrated way too early and ended up with major egg on your face? If you know that sinking, awful feeling… don’t worry. No matter how much you made people cringe or how embarrassed you felt, it happens to a lot of people. Thanks to good folks at the Premature Celebrations sub-Reddit, now you can see some of the most cringe-worthy premature celebrations that have ever happened. I’m not sure how these people were ever able to go out in public again. Yiiiiiiiiiiikes (and that’s an understatement).
1. HE WON! HE WON! … He… won? Right?
2. Try not to get cocky… for this reason.
3. Give it your all UNTIL THE VERY END. Otherwise, this happens.
4. Even NFL players make the mistake of celebrating too early.
5. Oops. Maybe you should just pretend to be hurt.
6. Instant cocky karma.
7. It’s hard to say what’s happening here, but they probably had it coming.
8. OH GOD OH GOD GOD.
9. When will people learn that this is a bad idea?
10. LOL WHOOPS.
11. Psssst, you aren’t winning.
12. Don’t be fancy. Just score.
13. Goalies may want to pay attention.
14. So much happiness… and then so much sadness.
15. Keep your shirt on. You didn’t score.
16. !!! … ??? … 🙁
17. At least Taylor Swift can write a song about this major disappointment.
If you ever need cheering up, just check these out. You’ll feel way less embarrassed by your own shortcomings. Unless you’re Taylor Swift. Sorry, Tay-Tay.
