[Video] The Game Bored Kids Play in the Mekong Delta

Quick: what do you do with a wooden plank, a bicycle and a lot of free time?

You invent a new game, of course. For a group of bored Mekong Delta residents, these elements recently became the perfect source of entertainment, as evidenced in the following video. Posted by Facebook user Dac San Ben Tre, the clip shows locals attempting to ride a bicycle across a thin wooden plank above a pond, only to fall in several times in their attempts to cross the water.

A few crashing cymbals add to the atmosphere, as well as the crowd of onlookers who take great pleasure in watching their neighbors fall face-first into the water. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, if you ask us.
