MIME FAIL! is a Smosh video uploaded on January 27, 2012.


After a law that bans mimes performing in public is passed, A Mime tries to live a normal everyday life by doing tasks that mostly fail.



For centuries, Mimes have annoyed mankind with their performances. This year, a law finally passed which makes it illegal for Mimes to perform in public. Since then, Mimes have been trying to live a nomal life and failed. Here are some examples of them:

Serial Killer

Adrian panics as Mr. Mime pulls out an imaginary knife. Adrian screams as the mime stabs him repeatedly, but then stops when he sees that nothing is happening to him. He then replies, "What the f**k?" (MIME FAIL!)

Escaping a Building Fire

A fireman (Ian) tries to get the mime out, who is being trapped in an imaginary box. Despite the fireman yelling "OH S**T! GET THE F**K OUTTA HERE! WHAT'RE YOU DOING?! JUST GET THE F**K OUTTA HERE!! OH F**K WE'RE ALL DEAD!!!" to the mime to get out, the Mime does nothing to get out. (MIME FAIL!)

Bungee Jumping

The Mime ties an imaginary bungee cord around himself and jumps off. He lands and explodes on impact. (MIME FAIL!)

Talking on the Phone

Mr. Mime and a guy are on the phone just standing there in silence. The guy asks, "Hello?" (MIME FAIL!)

President of the United States

A military commander asks the mime president where they should drop the bombs. A mime keeps making hand signals and the subordinate (Ian) thinks that he's saying that they should bomb Paris. They then think that the mime is saying that they should bomb the White House. The mime tries to protest, but they press the button, which causes an explosion in the White House. (MIME FAIL!)


A girl checks the pregnancy test, which reads positive, or "PREGGERS." The girl angrily asks, "What the hell do you mean mime condom!?" The mime grins apologetically and shrugs. (MIME FAIL!)


Billy (Ian) asks his mime dad to teach him about "the birds and the bees." The mime uses hand motions as a visual for sexual intercourse by using a finger and inserting it into the other hand making an "O", but it leaves Billy confused. The mime does pelvic thrusts, which as Billy finally get the concept. Sgt. Anous comes in and shouts, "Stop right there, pervert!" (MIME FAIL!)

Taxi Driving

Ian calls for a taxi and the mime pulls over in an imaginary taxi cab. Ian says, "I'm not getting in your imaginary car." The mime angrily backs up and then drives towards Ian, running him over. The mime then flips off Ian. (MIME WIN!?)


The mime was skydiving when he tries to activate his imaginary parachute. Nothing happens, which has the mime scream his only word ("F**K!") before plummeting to his death. At the funeral, the girl was the only person mourning over the death, when the gravedigger (Ian) starts taking interest into the mime's girlfriend (which she reciprocates). The video ends with the gravedigger saying, "And that's the story of how I met my wife."

​Deleted Scenes

(More) Dating

The mime arrives at the girl's house. The girl thought that he had roses, but he instead hands her imaginary flowers. At dinner, the waiter gives the mime the bill. The mime gets out his imagianry wallet to give him imaginary money. The girl says, "You've got to be kidding."


Ian was tied up to a chair by imaginary ropes and imaginary blindfolds. He then tells the mime, "Uh, I saw where you took me. Yeah, your mime blindfold kinda sucks. And so does your mime rope." The mime gasps before Ian then tells the mime that he'll just go home. Ian then gets off the chair and casually leaves, leaving the mime depressed. (MIME FAIL!)




  • Billy's "I still don't get it." was also used in SEX ED ROCKS!.
  • The deleted scenes revealed that the "Bomb White House" button is really an Easy button with red duct tape over it. They did the same in "JUSTIN BIEBER HITS PUBERTY (Never Say Never 2)."
  • In the Escaping a Building Fire scene, the firefighter is quoting Porkchop Sandwiches, a parody of G.I. Joe public service announcements.
  • During the Shut Up! Opening, the sound is trying to imitate the seagulls from Disney*Pixar's Finding Nemo.
  • In the Skydiving Scene, when the mime says "F**K!" he breaks the vow of silence for mimes.
  • In the background in the President of the United States scene, two computers in the beginning had FreddieW's video Battlefield 3 Commercial and a news report usually used for Smosh videos previously seen in "REAL DEATH NOTE!". Another computer monitor shows the Windows XP Blue Screen Of Death.
  • In the same scene above, when the mime was protesting against bombing the White House, a computer behind him briefly had the game Asteroids playing.
  • This is the 6th video when something is said during the intro after the "SHUT UP!", but before the actual video begins. The other videos were "Handshake," "Ian's Birthday," "Smosh Snatchers," "That Damn Prison Break," and "A Very Hairy Situation w/ Billy Mays"
  • On the tombstone, it says that the name is Mr. Mime, which is also a Pokemon.
  • This was the first video thumbnail of 2012 with a picture of Anthony.
  • The Shut Up! Opening is similar to seagulls saying "Mine" from Finding Nemo.
