The 12 Greatest Viral Videos of Men Crying

Man-crying used to be reserved, in prior eras, exclusively for truly severe, maudlin circumstances. Watching your pappy die after being crushed by a runaway carriage, for example. Or finding out that privateers happened upon the vessel you had charted to bring your newfound fortune home from the New World, dashing your dreams and sentencing your riches to an eternity in the briny deep. That sort of thing.

Today, guys cry over smaller tragedies. (Say, for example, because their favorite team lost the big game. Or because people on the Internet are being kind of mean to Britney Spears.) And fortunately, the magic of technology allows us to enjoy the spectacle of dudes losing their s**t over nothing from the comfort of our own home, without actually having to be there to watch the sobs take form. Which can be a little awkward.

What follows are 13 classic Internet videos featuring a diverse collection of guys crying over all sorts of traumas, big and small. We'd ask you to vote for your favorites, but that's just cold. Plus there are rules against bullying now, I think. Better to be on the safe side.

    Giants Fan in Shambles

    f t g r p @
    Rob is a drunk Giants fan. (Is there any other kind?) In 2009, following a wrenching Giants loss to the Eagles in the playoffs, Rob had kind of a meltdown. Fortunately, he has kind, caring friends whom he knows he can rely on. To berate him over the loss, film him blubbering and then posting the results to YouTube.

    Perhaps most troubling is Rob's repeated insistence that rooting for the Giants is his life. "It's the reason I live!," he bellows at his friend, who just doesn't seem to understand his pain. And perhaps that's the trouble right there... if you're going to pin your hopes for f*ture survival on any NFL franchise, perhaps the Giants aren't the way to go. (Wasn't this the plot of "Leaving Las Vegas"? Nicolas Cage had to drink himself to death because the Giants lost a key game to the Eagles after taking down Arizona and getting his hopes up?)

    As a bonus, here's another clip of a sports fan going apes**t after his beloved team - in this case, Ohio State - gets taken down. He handles the situation with roughly the same maturity level as Rob. To be fair, though, he's 4. Do with that what you will.
