Ever since Drake made the phrase YOLO popular, people have been doing stupid things in the spirit of “only living once.” Well this is definitely life imitating art, because some of our favorite television shows and movies have been living that “YOLO” life way before the Cash Money rapper made it popular to do so.
The #WordEyeHeard Presents: Top 5 On-Screen YOLO Moments
5. “Don’t Be a Menace…” -Licking Toes
After being schooled about the hood by his closest friend Loc Dog, Ashtray fell in love with Dashiki. And a real man will do whatever it takes to please his woman, right…?
Aye bruh, you seen dem toes???
The exact moment of YOLO came at :11. Watch below:
This is definitely a YOLO moment, because Ashtray risked a fungal infection and the inevitable stench of toe jam to make his woman happy.
Sidenote: Don’t try that at home. Hot Sauce doesn’t cure that mess that was on her feet.
4. “Scarface” – The Shootout
Besides the fact that he had done enough cocaine for the entire population of Columbia, Tony Montana saw his house surrounded by men who were sent to kill him, and he manned up, strapped up, and went to war.
Even though he DIED, this scene is still a favorite for Thumb Thugs around the world.

This is definitely a YOLO moment, because Tony’s back was against the wall, but like a real OG, he went to war with dozens of people. You only live once!
Then he died.
Side note: You have to be on a LOT of coke to not feel all those bullets.
3. “Set It Off” – Cleo vs the Police
After robbing a lot of banks, stealing cars, and having sexual relations with a woman who didn’t have a speaking part, Cleo finally got caught by the police. Surrounded by cop cars, she had two choices: turn herself in, or go out like a G.
(If you haven’t seen the movie to know the conclusion, shame on you.)
So Cleo turned off the hydraulics on her old school, lit a cigarette, and did the ugly cry.

This is definitely a YOLO moment, because any sane person would’ve just gone to jail. Look at her face; she would’ve had everyone washing her drawls and giving up their honey buns and ramen noodles.
Looking like Diabla from “Beyond Scared Straight…”
Side note: Unless you’re this ugly, don’t plan on going to jail.
2. “Martin” – Martin vs. Tommy “Hitman” Hearns
It’s hard out here for a man who can’t fight, but wants to fight and impress his woman. Martin decided it was a good idea to get in the ring with professional boxer Tommy “Hitman” Hearns.
Man…I haven’t seen an uppercut like that since…

This is definitely a YOLO moment, because if that boxer doesn’t kill you, you’ll certainly want to die after seeing your face.
Side note: Stay away from bus drivers in Cleveland.
1. “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” – Trevor Proposes to Hillary
Hillary had finally found love in a news anchor named Trevor. Being the tight-ass that he was, he had to propose in the most unorthodox way– by bungee jumping on live television.
Was the cord too long and the distance to the ground too short? I don’t know, but this was just stupid.
The exact moment of YOLO came at :06. Watch below:
This is definitely a YOLO moment, because normal men who want to marry the love of their lives go on a reality television reunion show, get down on one knee, and ask:
“IS YOU GONE MARRY A N!GGA?”
Side note: If you accept a man’s proposal that includes “is you” and ends with “n!gga,” you’ll be divorced before the honeymoon.
I’m lilD, and that’s the Word Eye Heard. You only live once, but if you do less stupid stuff, you might live longer.
