Justin Trudeau, tripping on his arse

The fun starts at 1:52.

After a very good interview with some dude from La Presse (who moonlights as a Franc Tireur), Justin Trudeau channels his inner Pierre and falls down some stairs for fun and giggles.

Lisée says it looks bad. I disagree: purposefully falling on one’s ass on camera is a welcome change for someone who takes himself too seriously too much of the time. At the very least, this little tumble almost makes up for the fact that he’s going for the ol’ Urban-Zoro / Cyrano-de-Bergerac-in-jeans look these days. (I know, I know. It’s Movember. But still…)

Thoughts, anyone?
