U2’s the Edge Fell Off the Edge of a Stage, and It Was So Glorious and Hilarious That It Might Be the Secret to Life

Man, in many ways, is in an ongoing search for meaning in this ridiculous life we have. Some find it in nature or charity or their family or a super-good sandwich. Me? I find it in this clip of U2’s the Edge, a.k.a. Thedge, on tour in Vancouver, falling off the edge of the stage while singing “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” — literally right when they sing “for,” he flops off the edge of the stage. It’s just so funny, so pure, so existentially correct. It’s perfection. It’s the gods writing poetry. I found it: This is what I was looking for.

Also, don’t worry, he’s okay:

"Didn't see the edge, I'm ok!!
