I don't understand why this is funny?
Maybe because they spent the last 30 minutes loading those carts on the truck and now they get to do it again because the truck driver was an idiot?

From their non-reaction I figured this was an intentional attempt to "efficiently" unload the carts from the truck.

Exactly, and the one guy was holding a shield so I assume this is common practice but sometimes things bounce up (small rocks?).

I guess if that's the loading instead of unloading phase, it would be funny.

But ... but ... glowing kittehs!

Quote
When these green kitties were still twinkles in their parents’ eyes, scientists investigating a macaque gene thought to protect monkeys against feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) inserted it into cat eggs with a lab-grown virus, intending to test whether cats carrying the gene were resistant to FIV as well. Researchers are interested in seeing how the macaque gene guards against FIV, which is the feline version of HIV, in hopes of transferring their insights to combating HIV.

But here’s where things get wacky: The team also included in the virus a jellyfish gene that makes a glowing green protein, to act as a signal. The virus does not always succeed in transferring the genes entrusted to it, but by including the jellyfish gene, the team gave themselves an easy way to tell when the transfer took place: kittens that glow green under fluorescent light, showing that they carry the jellyfish gene, almost certainly carry the macaque gene as well.

Having spent my time in the backroom of the grocery store where I work, I think that was exactly what he was doing. Guy in the middle just picked up the ramp thing as they just finished loading the truck, while the one on the right walked up to close the door. Truck driver was apparently in one hell of a hurry to get the mob of carts home.

Also, green glowing kittens is quite creepy.

You can't actually close the doors on a truck when it is backed up for loading.  The driver needs to pull it forward a few feet so they can swing around and be closed.  You can see the doors bouncing on the sides and see it isn't a pull-down type trailer.

I'm almost 100% sure this is correct.  They just finished loading them, the guy on the left is removing the plank they used to push the carts across the gap on.  The guy on the right is walking forward to pull the door down and the driver just goes.  The guy on the right stops abruptly with kind of a 'wtf' pose and then the rest happens.   The driver pulled away before they were done securing the load and closing the door, now they get to put them all back on. (from the ground no less)

That feels like a reference to me.  Roll Eyes

It seems to me that when your load is ON WHEELS it might be a good idea to fasten them down and not rely on notoriously unreliable truck trailer doors to keep things in on the road. Therefore, I naturally came to the conclusion that this was the unloading phase since if it were the loading phase someone would be on the truck with tie downs or something, or at the very least have them in hand. I guess if the driver was waaay ahead of schedule, not paying attention to the loading process at all, this could be 15 minutes prior to being ready to pull away so the doors could be closed.

It looks like a trailer that has the 2 swinging doors, which there is no room there to close. Looks like it's pulling out to get enough room to close the doors, the 2 guys just didn't do a loadbar or strap the end of the carts.

The driver does more than just pull forward a little, I don't think they were done with the loading process.  I think the driver just got confused and went.

unloading or loading, i think we can agree that the truck driver jumped the gun.  maybe he thought it would be faster to unload that way, but i don't think either of the dock workers were expecting that (or wanting that)

Ok, there we have it. You can see the motorized ramp built into the dock lower when black jacket steps on it, so what's the board for? Looks like a makeshift tower shield to me! So I say that's the fastest way to unload the truck and then they are all on ground level where they belong.

I recall an AFV where they commented that "hands on head" is an almost sure sign of "staged" and people don't generally do that.

Also, where does it state they were unloading carts? Would they not have unloaded INTO the dock it was pulled up against? It seems like they loaded it up, and the driver had to pull away from the dock to close the door. The load wasn't secured and he had a lapse in thought and actually pulled away instead of just rolling forward.

Where do you see "hands on head"?  The reactions are very non-plussed for this to be staged.

Though, yeah, the extended video doesn't clear up the loading/unloading thing at all.

Celtics player comes into the bar, gets caught up in inane bar arguments, gets obsessed with finding out the number of bolts in the floorboards of the Garden, and stares at the floor his next game with his performance plummeting.  Cheers gang breaks into the Garden or something to count them, then gets wrapped up in a discussion about whether or not the hockey rink ice is eternally below the basketball court, pull up some floorboards to check, don't put them all back in time, hijinks ensue.

some of those raise on their own and they get lowered every time you walk on them.  At any rate, the original argument wasn't whether they were loading or unloading, it was that you had no idea why it was funny.  I'm still confused how you turned that around.
