A man with apparently little virtual reality gaming experience straps on a headset at the urging of the company in the living room. He's game for the adventure, but a little warning and preparation could have prevented an unfortunate but all-too-predictable outcome. Check out the video below to see what happens.

Uploaded by @itsnotjackson, TikTok users react in the comments section. (A followup video notes the man is okay after the incident.)
"It was an act of God," suggests commenter @bigserge713.
"Just for your information," writes @th15_1s_m3, "They make you put up a barrier for a reason."
"That's not how the barriers work," says @settle82. "They don't catch you in the air."
"I just don't understand how this happens so much," wonders @jpcorrigan9.
"People put those headsets on and forget their body is still in the real world," surmises @blkmonte01.
"Do people put this on and think they actually teleport or something?" asks @siggy1223 incredulously. "It's common sense that it's a game."
"I play VR a lot," says @paleandgangly. "I know 100% of the time I am just in my living room. It’s bananas that people get this immersed."
An unsympathetic @carlos281tx has a different concern. "Is the coffee table okay?" he asks.
