It is amazing how many friends you can make by being bad at things, provided you are bad enough to be funny.
My family is known for things like that. My dad once found a big empty box in walmart, so he flipped it over, hid inside, and started barking at people who passed by. Sounds crazy, but if you knew my dad you'd know he has a tendency to bark at people. He's also known for doing strange or plain stupid things so that's not out of character for him at all.
