The Segway Web Video Hall of Fame
Of course, not everyone is familiar with a Segway. Here’s a nice compilation of epic crashes and accidents (We sincerely hope that everyone who crashed is OK).
Chipmanzee on a Segway
And sometimes, a chimpanzee is brave and balanced enough to figure out how to work a Segway. This one is fearless, I just love how he looks back at everybody with a wide grin on his face.
Justin Bieber’s Failed Segway Getaway
Biebermania. Justin Bieber, teen idol, decided the best way to avoid getting trampled by his pre-teen fans was to roll off in a Segway. Silly, I know, but I can’t say I wouldn’t do the same. The elementary aged girls wouldn’t be denied and eventually caught up to him.
Woz on a Segway
A cheery Woz, Segway extraordinaire, explains the intricacies of Segway Polo in this video, like accidentally throwing the ball (do polo players use a ball?) at someone’s face.
Security Guard Dancing on a Segway
When you got the moves, you just got the moves. Doesn’t matter what sorta moving surface you’re on, you’ll still be able to dance better than everyone else in the room.
BONUS: Our 43rd President, George W. Bush, Falling Off a Segway
You got me, this wasn’t a real video but the pictures are enough! It sure didn’t look like W was able to get a good handle on the Segway (among other things). But I mean, I still like the guy. And I applaud his effort.

“They see me roll on… my segway…”
~ Oscar Wilde on Segway
The Segway (From the Greek word “Segtos” meaning “God of Fat” and the Latin word “Way” which rhymes with “Hay”, a popular food for cattle) is a vehicle can stand up with only two wheels. It can reach speeds of up to 6 mph, which has led to a ban of Segways on sidewalks. This came as a big blow to Segway owners, who are now intentionally hit by cars.
This was all that came to mind.
