I agree - the latter.
Regarding the link you posted I'm normally a defender of Americans and hate broad-brush opinions like "dumb yanks" which are often expressed on here after a video clip of somebody doing something daft who happens to be an American. After all, this is country who went to the moon.
But regarding that link I can only say one thing: Stupid bastards.
