Priorities: British Man Gets Hit By Runaway Bus, Stands Up, Walks Into Pub

June 28, 2017


This is a video from Reading in Berkshire, England, of a man who gets hit by a runaway double decker bus, pushed around twenty feet, then stands up and walks into a pub, presumably where he'd already been headed before the incident. Except now he's probably getting a whole bunch of free pints bought for him. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Do not try to get hit by a bus in front of a bar for free drinks." But I don't get paid till Friday!

Keep going for the video of the classic joke, "So a guy gets creamed by a bus and walks into a bar..."

Thanks to Twumpybum, who agrees somebody should buy this man a Jägermeister. And a lottery ticket. And maybe an x-ray.

    Adrenaline is a hell of a drug.

  • Shirley Knott

    Nobody needs to buy him an x-ray, we have a national health service here.

  • Ian Higgins

    "somebody should buy this man ... an x-ray."
    This is the UK, we don't have to pay for those... yet.

    He is my spirit human.

    This was a trailer for a movie. I think it was called 'The bus that couldn't slow down an alcoholic'.

  • Bling Nye

    He drinks a Whiskey drink, he drinks a Vodka drink
    He drinks a Lager drink, he drinks a Cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him of the good times

    I love these viral marketing videos for upcoming movies! Unbreakable 2 is gunna be SWEET!

    I thought this was a trailer for Speed 3; they really need to market these more clearly.

  • Sandy Dmyterko

    Why are all the people coming and kneeling by the door? Did the guy collapse just inside the pub? You can see from the right lower corner window what looks like the guy that got hit just inside the entrance.

  • SmokeThatSkinWagon

    He's fine. I thought the same thing at first, but the link in the article mentions that the paramedics found only scrapes and bruises.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I haven't seen a report about it but I'd bet he did collapse inside the door. Or was so high on adrenaline that he was having a panic attack.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Anyone else thinks he was already drunk before entering that pub?

  • SmokeThatSkinWagon

    "He sustained only scratches and bruising."
    That is one lucky dude.

  • Bling Nye

    I'd say he was quite unlucky for being hit by a bus in the first place...
    So, now I gotta wonder... does the good and bad luck cancel out then?
    Luck and how it's ascribed is weird.
