Don't try this with YOUR camera...

... or it may cost you $70K plus - seems to be an ARRI Alexa XT. Probably not going to look good on the vest manufacturer's resume... although I have to admit, the guy has seriously overstepped his role as a tester. The manufacturer (http://www.nbstabilizer.com/) suggests a slightly more... um... shall we say "stable" way of handling.

It happened just a couple of days ago at the 2016 Los Angeles Cine Gear Expo.

Hopefully it was just a thump to the base of the pole that the camera was on and someone was able to catch it before the camera fell to the ground.

Ouch.

Whoever owned that steadicam and especially that camera was very stupid to let that unexperienced idiot dance like that.

I love how Reddit has made a GIF of this already:
