    well im a girl and when i was his age much worse things happened to me so rather than feel bad for him i understand his pain. so im basically laughing at myself when i laugh at him.
    Just like when i think God laughs at me everytime i trip and fall. just. like. that

  2. Abe says:

    Ridiculously awkward!!!! But sooo so funny! AGH!

  3. Sara T says:

    Haha, poor kid!
    I hope his parents will do everything they possibly can to make him forget about this!
    I mean, I wouldn’t want to grow up knowing I had walked right into a pillar in the presence of RVP (and caused him to lose his hearing afterwards).

  4. Tomisin says:

    I read the comments first so I thought it was a funny video. I literally flinched when he hit the post. Poor boy that must have hurt!

  5. @AgnesWonka says:

    ahhhhhhhh LOL!
    hello! that's called: dealing with kids! that's why I choose to be a secondary school teacher so to cope with teenagers!

  6. DutchGooner89 says:

    Awww bless the poor little guy, i had some flashbacks when i ran into a pole when i was like 6 years old, had one mighty old nose bleed!! But the scream is what has done it for me and the slow mo…

    • DutchGooner89 says:

      ohhh and how can i forget RVP and his failed attempts at controlling his smile, i just love this guy!

  7. Pam says:

    Rob is almost a has been. How long has he been out of play? He's still "injured" and out? He hasnt played for Holland or Arsenal since ages ago. Should we even be talking about him?

  8. cherryboomboom says:

    I know I shouldn't be laughing .. but it was hilarious !!!!!
    Look at RVP's face in the end .. I'm sure he wanted to laugh too ! xD!

  9. xoxoarsenalxoxo says:

    Ok i laughed.Out Loud.i know im evil.lol.↲
    bt seriously…that replay.lol!↲
    RVP*hugs n kisses*

    My best friend recently married a rabid Arsenal fan. I am afraid if he sees this video, he will immediately impregnate her in an attempt to lure Robin van Persie into a game of kick-around with a child of his very own. So in the name of All My Friends Not Having Children Right Now Please God, this video needs to disappear from the interwebs.

  11. Mrs.Navas says:

    aww poor boy.

  12. lovealwaysyours says:

    I'm not gonna lie- I laughed out loud and am not ashamed. Maybe I feel more adamantly than most, but having worked as a preschool teacher for over a year, it is a lesson children must learn- you must keep your eyes forward when walking (and it's ridiculous you have to even state that). I have seen too many 4-year olds do that (wall after wall after wall), and I've just come to the conclusion it's an evolutionary imperative and developmental milestone to reach.

    Besides, kudos to Van Persie for immediately giving that kid a hug (albeit while trying not to laugh)- now we have indisputable evidence that not only does he have a sense of humor, but a heart. :)

    • RedAne says:

      Couldn't agree more with what you said. I'm a teacher too and your last sentence on the kids is just oh-so-tue!! hahahaha :)

  13. Jackie says:

    Shame on me at how much & hard I laughed. hope the kid was alright. lol

  14. @dadillio26 says:

    That was absolutely hilarious. Also, that kid's scream reminded me why I'm so glad to have a dog.

  15. Kylie says:

    Omg…The slow motion replay at the end was what got me, lol. I feel so bad for the little boy, but I'm not gonna lie…I would consider intentionally running into a pole and dealing with whatever pain ensued if it meant RVP would show such concern, give me a hug, and make sure I was ok. *hides in shame*

  16. ConnPossible says:

    I would have lmao, but handsome men holding little kids hands are my kryponite.
    Stupid, sexy Van Persie.

  17. caitanya says:

    Unsure why everyone is meting out negatives left and right–it really was funny. But yes, poor kid. And RVP's face is stellar

  18. V-Rcok says:

    Love love! I didn't read the intro I went straight to play the video because to be honest anything with Robin Van Persie is just delish!

    As the video was coming to an end and it showed the little boy walking straight into the pole again, I knew it was coming. A laugh out loud laugh that my whole office would hear. I couldn’t help myself, it just came out, the almost laugh covered by a look of “concern” = the perfect Friday pick me up. Then Mr. Guilt made an appearance so I read your intro and after I did that I felt soo much better! You ladies at kickette are my kind of girls!

  19. Taskeen says:

    oh my word! shame that poor thing, lol it wasn't a "funny ha ha" laugh- i promise- it was more an "omigod did that seriously happen" laugh

  20. nenna says:

    first i was like watch out! then pang , omg hahahha

  21. littlegirl says:

    i got three question connected to each other:
    1) how can someone laught when a kid hurt a pole and cry? but 2)kid:how could you hurt a pole???!!!
    and 3)Robin Van Persie:would you hug me if I hurt a pole?

  22. Zinny says:

    Robin's attempt at a poker face is killing me. Haha.
    Poor kid; he did scream really loud though.

  23. Michaella says:

    For a minute there i felt so guilty, but my evil side possesed me to replay….

  24. Zhenya says:

    Those other little boys took off fast once the handler pulled them away!

  25. Leya_S says:

    omg, I should NOT have laughed at that…
    …but I did. I feel bad for the little kid!
    RVP looks hot, though, particularly in his attempt to not laugh.

  26. SoccerLoverrrr says:

    i kno i shudnt laff..buh i did!!! ooo dat poor child!

  27. Leah says:

    When I first saw this on DT, I burst out laughing! And now I've showed my roommates so they think I'm totally heartless. At least my boy Robin didn't laugh…

  28. Cindy says:

    oh man i should not be laughing as hard as i am right now! Robin's inability to stop a smirk is how'd i'd react too, but hey at least he got coddled by RVP!

  29. Cesc' Mia says:

    Oh My God!!!
    I literally fell off my chair when i saw this!

    And i just looooooooooooove the look on Robin's face,
    trying to hold his burst of laugh!!
    you can laugh with me later, dear :)

  30. HiL says:

    Maybe i'm evil, but it's hilarious XD

  31. dss says:

    I have 2 little boys ages 4 and 5…they aren't particularly tough. My 5 yr old would have been to embarrassed to cry and would have just pretended it didn't happen. My little linebacker of a 4 year old would have just shaken it off and kept moving.

  32. CarmenFoxe says:

    Wish I got a Van Persie hug…hope the little boy's okay!

  33. zztop says:

    is it bad that I burst out laughing?
