During a first-round match at the U.S. Open, a ball boy attempting to look cool while doing his work discovered physics has no sympathy for you, no matter how many balls you have.

During Tuesday's match between Andy Murray and Ernests Gulbis, this ball boy tried to catch a runaway ball by hurdling a billboard on the sidelines. As you can see from the video, his plan worked poorly.

The ball boy was apparently uninjured and is looking forward to spending the rest of his life trying to live down a video that's now plastered across all corners of the Internet and on every news outlet's sports-highlight reels. Check out the video below.
