Pioneer Press reporter is going viral for Jack-in-the-box fail

This is a beautiful disaster.
Publish date:

Minnesotans love it when one of our own goes viral, like the girl who stuck her head in a tailpipe, or the Mounds View baseball pitcher who hugged the batter instead of celebrating a trip to the state tournament. 

Delightful or embarrassing, we love 'em all, and we've got another one to share with you thanks to Sarah Horner, a legal affairs reporter from the Pioneer Press.

She's now going viral thanks to an influential social media account sharing a video of her dressed up as a Jack-in-a-box, popping out at her nephew's birthday party only to immediately fall backwards.

The social media giant we're talking about has a naughty name, "F---Jerry," which we regrettably can't censor in the Facebook video they shared below.  

The video of Horner's fail was shared on Tuesday. As of Thursday afternoon it already had more 57,000 views.  

For the record, we don't know how "F---Jerry" came up with their name, but they've got nearly 19 million followers via Facebook and Instagram combined.
