Stone Cold Man Survives Being Hit By A Bus, Gets Up And Walks Into Bar

A man walks into a bar... after he was just hit by a double-decker bus. This is not a set up to a joke. This is a thing that actually happened.


In the video, you can see a double-decker bus careening out of control and striking a man walking on the sidewalk who was just minding his own business. He gets knocked off his feet and skids for several more before getting back up, seemingly uninjured.

The video’s caption reads,

A man was knocked down by a bus and he got right back up and walked into a bar. The 53-year-old man said he is lucky to be alive after being hit by the double-decker as he crossed the road in Reading, England. Nothing was stopping this guy from getting a pint of beer, not even a double-decker bus.


My man! You are an inspiration. I feel like I would have experienced some kind of shock after this. But the call of a pint was so much more powerful than anything mortal like fear or trauma. I’m not even sure I can get on that level.

I hope someone bought him a drink after that.

Don’t think we’re completely impervious. When it’s not just a bus but three pillocks running people down and going on a stabbing and killing spree, we may briskly leave the area.

Pint still in hand, of course.
