Finally, who can resist a good video of a celebrity walking into a glass door?

I would poke more fun at poor Justin Bieber, but:  a) he takes a lot of unfair shots as it is when he's just a kid enjoying some unexpected fame and fortune (who of us wouldn't do the same at his age?); and b) I rammed my head into a glass display window in the Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes on a recent Vegas trip, trying to get a better look at a watch in a display case (it produced quite the gong sound effect).  So really, this is just a terrible accident that can happen to the best of folks ...

Enjoy your weekend!
