Please Enjoy This Video Of People Absolutely Stacking It At This Year's Cheese Rolling Championships YouTube

Every now and again - about once a year, actually - a video emerges that kind of makes us want to, one day, possibly, move to the UK.

Enter the annual Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling Festival (occasionally dubbed "The World's Stupidest Competition") which has once again taken over the hilly English countryside.

If you're unfamiliar with Cheese Rolling, gather round. It basically involves chucking an enormous wheel of cheese down an incredibly steep hill and letting a pack of people throw themselves after it.

The first person down the hill gets to keep the cheese. That's it. Hoards and hoards of people gather, once a year, and hurtle down a hill, risking injury - and, let's be honest, death - for a wheel of cheese.

We told you you'd want to join in.

Anyway, some genius installed a camera right in the sweet spot this year, which means there's about three minutes of classic stacks in a handy little clip below.

If anyone needs us, we'll be recreating this in our backyard with a block of Tasty.
