This video won the 2010 Vimeo award for "Best Experimental Film."  Creator Chris Beckman's explains:
Somewhere between a visual mixtape and a postmodern virtual travelogue, "oops" – a ten-minute art video composed entirely of appropriated YouTube videos, seamlessly stitched together via a motif of camera drops... This abstractly voyeuristic portrayal of an ever-filming generation (who won't let the transcendence of being in A Moment inhibit their document-everything impulse) presages a future where every moment of our existence, from the mundane to the sublime, is preserved and catalogued for all to see.

Meta, I'm from the era where those cameras were five times the price, weighed over ten pounds and on top of that you had to carry the video tap recorder on your thigh. There is no excuse for dropping these new ones!

I guess I’m the guy that doesn’t get it this time. I only got 2 ½ minutes into it. Random videos of people dropping cameras stitched together? Or was there more to it?
