FedEx Delivery Man Smashing Computer Monitor Is YouTube Hit (Video)

When YouTube user 'goobie55' discovered that his newly-delivered computer monitor was broken in several places, he turned to the security camera he had helpfully installed outside his house.

The footage appeared to show a FedEx employee throwing the computer monitor delivery over his gate. He was outraged - and this being the modern world, immediately uploaded it to YouTube. Predictably, the clip has since become an instant hit.

Streaming under the strap-line "The FedEx Guy Throwing My Computer Monitor", 'goobie 55' explains underneath the video how he was actually at home when the monitor was delivered:

"Here is a video of my monitor being "delivered". The sad part is that I was home at the time with the front door wide open. All he would have had to do was ring the bell on the gate. Now I have to return my monitor since it is broken."

Worldwide anger directed at feckless delivery workers has sent this video rocketing to the top of trending clips on YouTube, despite being only 21 seconds long.

One user commented:

"NICE customer service...did the package have to be delivered by 10:AM....? Must have been 9:59AM....JUST IN TIME!"

Another noted the similarity between this Fed Ex man and Jim Carrey's delivery antics at the start of the movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, saying "he wasn't a pet detective by chance?"
