In his own words, Tayo Aina stated that on getting to the skating rink, he got a bit intimidated, seeing the people there attempting various stunts. Meanwhile, the words on Aina’s mind were, “I hope I don’t break my ankle doing this”
Further, in the video, the Nigerian YouTuber with a taste for adventure could be seen attempting to try to skate “for the first time on a skating rink” The adventure spirit in his head wanted him to “just try it.”
According to the video, the storyteller struggled on the rink for a short time before finding his footing. He started enjoying the experience.
In his own words, within two seconds, he started feeling like he was a pro skater. However, shortly afterwards, he realized that it was not true as he “slipped and fell on the ground”. At this point, he revealed that he did not have footage of the “falling”. (His followers on the internet believe that Aina omitted the footage on purpose to avoid embarrassment)
However, an adventurer’s pride can hardly let them give up easily. Consequently, he got back to his feet to try again.
According to the voiceover in the video, thirty minutes of “failure” later, he was successfully skating on the rink. He expressed that the experience was magical.
On social media, the video received a lot of love from the followers of the storyteller
