Friction’s overrated. Ask the guy in jorts that falls off his little cart halfway through the video how he feels about friction. Friction can turn on you.
But gravity? It’s always there for you. If you absolutely must make a YouTube video, and you’re out of ammo, and you don’t have enough gas in the car to get to the gas station to get more gas to set yourself and your surroundings on fire, and you’ve already driven into the above ground pool with a camera on your head anyway, gravity is there, waiting patiently, ready to drag you down amusingly into some sort of amusing crash.
