Heads up: this video may be hard to watch for some!
In what can only be described as a Tubthumping song come to life, a British bloke got knocked down by a bus in Reading, England – but he got up again and headed straight into his local pub!
Surveillance video shows Simon Smith crossing a street as one of the city’s purple buses rounds a curve behind him, then plows straight into him. Smith was thrown about 20 feet as the bus crashed into the sidewalk. Moments later, though, Smith gets back on his feet and heads into a pub steps away, fittingly called The Purple Turtle Bar. “We’ve known Simon for about 20 years,” Purple Turtle manager Stuart McNaught tells The Telegraph. “He’s okay. He’s a bit frail today. He’s not feeling the best…It’s absolutely crazy.”
