Here's a quick synopsis of the video above (which is best seen to be believed): Person identified by Hypervocal as "jackass dad" sends a small child -- who clearly has little to no skiing experience -- gliding down a rather formidable slope. Gliding turns to hurtling as the kid loses control and shrieks in terror while picking up speed. "Jackass dad" instructor's expert advice? Simply yelling "Pizza!" repeatedly and with increasing aggression.

Eventually, the child tumbles, yard sale style. He cries. Then "Jackass dad" has more words of wisdom: "Good job, dude! Dude, you survived!” He goes for the high five, but the kid's not having it. Some small measure of justice is served.
