We're just as confused as you are.

YouTuber Shonduras posted an extremely dramatic video over the weekend, detailing the terrifying moment his wife had the “near-death experience” of falling off of a cliff.

Posting the video from his family trip to Hawaii, Shonduras - aka Shaun McBride - shared a clip that shows the moment that his wife Jenny McBride fell from the path they were walking on and tumbled down the rocks, landing on a beach.

"I literally thought I was going to die," Jenny McBride sobbed afterwards. "I'm lucky to be here and not even have a broken bone, just [have] a really, really sore body.”

But despite the “terrifying” experience, she escaped the incident mostly unharmed, with just a few scrapes and bruises and was able to carry on the walk with her family.

After the fall, Shonduras claimed the event would change the family’s lives forever, writing in the video's caption that “this really was a life changing experience that has changed our perspective on life, family, and each other".

The only issue? The fall wasn't anywhere near as dramatic as Shonduras described it being so, of course, despite it not being intended to be funny, the incident has offered us countless memes. Let's run through some of the best...

Predictably, some of us had questions about the definition of "a cliff".

"Cliff wife" was quickly added to the already surprisingly large category of "meme wives"...

There was a lot of confusion, tbh, about how we should feel...

Poetry, as it turns out, sums up the incident perfectly...

And so does Avril Lavigne, apparently.

Cute animal pictures didn't manage to escape the meme either.

Life comes at you fast, I guess...

And now there's a new life goal for us all to aim for.

Is it time to unplug the internet yet, please?
