The player appeared to perhaps scuff his foot when he went to kick the ball, but missed.
Instead of shrugging off the error, Vidal launched himself into the air and then collapsed on the ground - only to bounce up seconds later, pointing a finger at the nearest Real defender
Unfortunately for the Chilean, Asier Illarramendi was at least two feet away at the time.
The dive has been hailed as arguably the worst of all time.
While slow-mo footage shows that Illarramendi had earlier just about clipped Vidal's foot, the player's ability to stay upright, continue his run, and take a swing at the ball, seem to render the subsequent theatrics unnecessary.
Juventus, suffering a run of poor form in the European competition, lost out 2-1 to Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.
Both the Spanish side's goals came from star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
