Higgins offered a hilarious take on women’s laser radial, one of 10 Olympic sailing events at the 2012 Summer Games. Higgins dubbed his commentary over broadcast footage and posted the video, called Boats, to Vimeo. It soon went viral. That’s when the IOC stepped in with a takedown order, sinking Boats just as it was reaching 500,000 views. Vimeo removed the video, which surprised Higgins and dashed his hopes of teaching people about a sport he found fascinating.
