The 2017 Annual Kookslams Awards
The kind of trophy you don't want on your mantelpiece.
It was a little under a year ago now that we made a conscious decision to dismount from the @kookslams bandwagon. That didn't mean that we hit block and avoided the explore page on Instagram. No, we decided that we'd stick to doing what we do best on the world's most vain application and leave the rock stumbling, the flailing beginner fails, flowrider falls and assorted ridiculous behaviour sharing to those that do it best. With 900k sets of eyes hanging on every post, the mysterious account (we haven't had a name revealed to us yet), continues to dominate the wipeout world of social media.
Last year we revealed the winners of our very first Kookslams awards, a chance to celebrate human failure through a different lens. Now, it's back and just as thrilling. So without further ado, here are the Kookslams Awards of 2017, all hail the low brow genius behind your favourite Instagram account – second to @stab, of course.
The Scorpion-to-esophagus-exfoliation is one hell of a way to win a kookslams award. Bravo to you, young grasshopper. We wish you a long life, filled with tiny granules of shell, rock and assorted calcium carbonates.
