Ryan Seacrest Tries to High-Five Blind Guy, Fails


At one time or another, we've all found ourselves uncomfortably wondering what sort of physical gesture was called for to signal the end of a conversation. Handshakes, fist bumps, bro hugs, air kisses ... it's all so confusing! However, we're pretty sure that Ryan Seacrest raised the bar of all-time socially awkward moments on American Idol last night when he tried (and failed) to high-five a legally blind contestant. We've got the video — which was apparently shot by the same people who brought you Cloverfield — for you after the jump. UPDATE (11:10am): Thanks to Videogum for ripping a version of this video that doesn't require one to slam a bottle of Dramamine in order to enjoy Seacrest's Folly; new version after the jump.
