Offbeat Video

By Katy Gill


Most people wouldn’t see the funny side of being on a hospital trolley suffering from a collapsed lung – but this lad took it as a perfect opportunity to see how much he could make his sick pal laugh.

Student Mac Masterson, 21, accompanied pal Kris Tovar, 20,  to hospital when a blister on his lung burst, causing it to collapse.

But rather than being concerned for his friend, he filmed his college buddy lying on a hospital trolley as he blasted out as many songs about breathing at full blast.

Through The Police’s ‘Every Breath You Take’ to Jordin Sparks’ ‘No Air’ we see Kris unable to stop laughing, despite his deflated lung.

Ohio State University student Mac said: “Kris had a blister on his lung called a bleb and it burst. This let air out of his lung and caused his lung to collapse.

“Kris was in the hospital for that whole weekend. He was discharged on Monday and is feeling better now, though he is a bit sore from the matter and has to check back in with the doctor at the end of the month.

“Kris was laughing and playing along and his family also enjoyed the video. They thought it was funny and helped ease tensions since everyone was worried.”
