We not gon talk about this mans expert level reverse skills?!?!!
That man is the most impressive mammal in this video
Along with the camera holder
Right? You got an elephant charging and the driver is driving reverse to get away, and he/she just maintaining focus on the elephant effortlessly.
Maybe he does this on a regular basis?
It happens on a regular basis
this ain’t his first rodeo.....
fuck sake Steve, we gonna do this every week?
fuck sake Steve, we gonna do this every week?
No Steve reverses like that, that's an Earl behind the wheel if ever I saw one.🥃👴🚬
“Bad to tha bone, ain’t you Tyrone”
“‘Course I am”
This guy reverses better than my drive in forward direction.
Someone plz up a reverse video?
out of the way, phant! LOL
Those backwards elephant Sounds are fantastic
i imagine it’s not his first rodeo lol did it lik a pro and controlled the weight the entire time. don’t kno how much “anti roll” features that might have but aren’t those easy to roll lik a suv?
He’s got skills!!
I thought it was a girl...
I was surprised he didn't pull a J-turn with how good he was at driving backwards out of there.
He's the world's best backwards driver!
From the video it looks like a universal studio ride
Yep. Looks like a simulation.
Cue Trex chase music
The driver turning the wheel didn't match up to the movement of the vehicle. I agree. Sim.
The people sure didnt look to concerned
It is a simulation. We're all in a simulation.
This touched my heart
Inside a simulation.
Inside a simulation
Inside a BIGGER simulation!
It reminds me of that Jurassic Park Jeep ride that was in video arcades, specifically the part where you are running away from the T-Rex. Shooting the shit out of it with no effect.
I hated the velociraptor tunnels
This is exactly what I thought. I NEVER got to beat that fucking game...
What??? Your parents never gave you $20 to beat that game either?
Nope. We never got that much when we went to the arcades... =(
Notice the speed and movements plus open air vehicle......no ones hair is blowing or moving with so called change of direction and wind for speed. Has to be a ride.
The hair of two women on the right definitely moves
Glad to know I wasn't the only one who thought about it
so its fake?
But no one is wearing mouse ears..
Universal studios, not Disney
My first thought was that Jeep is moving like the ones on the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland.
Dude holy shit I thought the same exact thing. Wtf
Wow no way dude! I was thinking this is fake exactly too!
Beat me to it lol
Indiana Jones at Disneyland
I like how people are filming throughout this like they couldn‘t die in the next minute
I mean fuck it. If I'm gonna get trampled to death I may as well get the video so people know exactly what happened and how I sound as I projectile shit myself.
What else are you able to do?
I’d probably duck so the driver could have maximum vision of the area behind the car.
Maybe I’m overthinking it but that’s something I could do!
Maybe it's too scary and they need to think "Calm down, it's only a movie"
Unlikely to die on a simulation ride but I suppose they could
My only thought was “please replace your phone with a gun”. Phones are the demise of humanity
Son. If you think most guns will help you in that situation you're deeply and truly fucked.
Suicide is the least painful option.
I thought this when a guy was talking about a bear. This guy is talking about an elephant lol. Some people have a real distorted view of what can be done with a gun
It would be a deterrent. Also my AR10 would turn a bear into spaghetti.
To be fair, they do make elephant guns
An elephant gun is a large caliber gun, rifled or smoothbore, originally developed for use by big-game hunters for elephant and other big game. Elephant guns were black powder muzzle-loaders at first, then black powder express rifles, then later used smokeless powder cartridges.

They hated Jesus Zach because he told them the truth.
"Why are you booing me, I'm right" comes to mind here. Facts are just facts, elephant guns do in fact exist. Tho tbf I doubt anyone would want to shoot an elephant over something like this if they can get away safely due to their low numbers. And the drivers are trained for such scenarios, hence his epic reversing skills.
Yeah I’m not saying anyone should have shot that elephant but the guy I replied to is acting like guns are useless against them.
They're correct in that most guns are absolutely useless in this situation beyond potentially trying to scare an already enraged elephant. But you didnt say that a small caliber weapon would be useful. All you said is that elephant guns are a thing. Which isnt an opinion, it's just a statement of fact. I think you just got pulled into that other guys down-vote vortex, aka The Reddit Effect.
Shut up boomer
Oh yea I bet a good old pistol or regular old gun is definitely going to take down or scare a pissed off elephant and not make it even more angry and defensive. Also I love how out of all things that could be a demise of humanity it’s “phones.” “It’s those damn phones ruining everything these days John”
Bruh you asked a question about why people take their shirts off during a fight. You've clearly never been in a fight and you blindly think guns are a catch all? Replace your phone with a gun and make a phone call then lmao
Thanks everyone for the clarification 🤙
You just got whole ass yeeted to the graveyard my guy. Like damn that was actually impressive how quickly you incited that much rage.
😂 did not expect backlash, that’s for sure. One guy even creeped my comments.
My only thought, after reading that comment, was "how embarrassing."
You’re not wrong. In this situation I would rather have my handgun than my cellphone. Probably wouldn’t use it unless it was my last case scenario- but if given the option, why WOULDNT you want a gun in this situation? Lol.
Option 1: you don’t have a gun, elephant chases you, you either get away successfully or elephant kills you.
Option 2: you have a gun, you attempt to run away, if successful, good, if things go south, then you have a gun.
I don’t know why everyone wouldn’t pick option 2? Lol. Obviously a handgun is not your first choice, but it’s a better option than nothing.
Also there’s record of people killing elephants with .44 magnums and even .357 magnums.
Many shits were shat.
This is fun we are all going to die.
Thanks, I love it.
We gon die but we gon film it.
LANDSCAPE MODE THO
Yeah someone commented that it looks like a simulation.. rewatched it and yeah it actually does.. the girl in the middle looks back and smiles lol
That would be the most impressive simulation I’ve ever seen.
It's more believable with sound. https://youtu.be/5PVHrYRb7aE
I came here for video sound.
I noticed her the first watch through. No one has that face on while getting charged by an elephant. Front left dude only looks half as scared as he should
I mean I tend to laugh in dangerous situations I don't know why but I do
I wonder if the elephant hates humans because a poacher killed its elephant friend or something. Or if this was just a territorial boi
Probably got close to some of his/her's kids that were in the area.
Why would an elephant care about young goats?
Odds are either the Jeep got too close to a herd or (more likely) it’s a bull in musth. Musth turns bulls into hormonal rage machines for a period of the year; this aggression usually gives them better odds at mating with female elephants, but anything else that gets close is likely to be brutally eviscerated.
Last summer I was able to view such an animal during a trip to Kruger National Park. No creature is more imposing and better left alone than an elephant in musth.
Those are all good points. I was wondering when I watched it with sound if the loud whining sound of the reverse gear was misconstrued by the elephant as something else and why he wasn’t giving up.
Can confirm. Saw a 5 legged elephant on a game drive once and it decided to aggressively swing some tree branches at us and fake some charges. We moped out off the path into the bushes and it didn’t follow us, thankfully, but seeing an animal get that angry just because it was horny was crazy.
Territorial. If you see the ears they flare up. That’s a defensive sign.
Props to the people filming
"Welp. Might as well record my death if I can."
I wanna see the car chase the elephant backwards haha
Here is your gif!
I am a bot. Report an issue
That elephant has some serious reversing skills!
Elephant casually moonwalks away from aggressive tour guide
Wild Saphari Jeep atracking an Elephant!
Glorious. Thank you for remembering this bot
Elephant downshifts 24 seconds in
It's fake, clearly the video is reversed and the elephant is running backwards.
Than the name of the elephant should be Michael Jackson
I have stabilized the video for you: https://peervideo.net/videos/watch/7e199a4a-10ba-4d5d-b575-6a32fba2589a
It took 417 seconds to process and 3 seconds to upload.
how to use | programmer | source code | /r/ImageStabilization/ | for cropped results, use /u/stabbot_crop
That felt very disorienting.
The stabilisation makes it worse, it causes the movement to be over exaggerated and makes it look like the front end of the jeep is sliding around on ice!
The vehicle probably got way too close.
Must go faster.
Think they'll have that on the tour?
Nature.. uh...uh uh.. finds a way
Fast and Furious Wild world
Need to speed safari style
All good names for a movie
What's your occupation?
It's like a Disney ride
i believe this belongs here r/NoisyGifs
Crazy how quiet they all were, given the situation.
So is this something you pay extra for?
Looks like a ride at Universal.
Is this the new ride in Universal Studios?
Wow, those Hollywood theme park rides are getting sooooooo realistic!
I’m still not convinced this isn’t a ride at Universal
I love this ride at universal studios!
Wow these universal rides are getting intense!
Is this the new ride that replaced King Kong at Universal studios?
I cant say for certain, but I doubt think it likes humans
The Elephant: the most underrated apex predator.
They got their money's worth!
Videos without sound should be banned.
Can’t wait to never go to Africa
Clinch my asshole just watching this
Kind of funny to hear fellow Aussies in the vid.
Now you pissed off Big Tusky!
Quick! Hit record!
Actually this video is in reverse
Tip your driver
Bossman with the reverse skills!
Now play it in reverse so it looks like they’re aggressively chasing down an elephant running backwards.
You got an audio clip
Click on imgur under the sub name. It has sound :)
I think people in the vehicle thinks its part of the safari
Holy crap. Whenever I start previewing a post like this (and thus the sub is covered), I try to figure out if it's r/nonononoyes or r/holdmyfeedingtube .
People be like thats gonna get me some sweet instagram karma
that's is fucking terrifying
I'm impressed by the camera stabilization though.
Elephant: Attempts to murder a bunch of humans in a vehicle
Girl: OMG I'm about to die I better record this!
Why do you think people wear brown to go on safari?
Why do you think people wear brown on safari?
Shit Bricks: The Ride . :)
He must be the world's best backwards driver!
The new Star Tours looks amazing.
I have a feeling this has happened before
r/holdmyredbull while I reverse like a boss
If that elephant knew a little more aerodynamics, they would be dead by now.
Karen was having such a good time.. should have slowed down so she could get a better view..
It's pretty insane (literally) that at least three persons instinct in that situation is to grab their phonecamera
more like humans are metal. Wtf this guy's skill level is over 9000
"Must go faster, must go faster..."
And this is why I don’t take safaris as vacation as well as cruises to pirate infested areas or anything just as fucking stupid. If I’m gonna go on vacation, I wanna live to tell about it, not die. Nope, no thank you, I’m outta here.
I went on a safari once and this elephant got really riled up and starting stealing things from the jeeps. He walked up to ours and we had to stay perfectly still while he walked so as not to rile him. It’s nothing compared to this, but it was spooky as hell.
This is not real btw lol.
Criminals should hire more safari guides as their getaway drivers. Dude was rippin the wheel only using the mirrors!
Disney land Indiana Jones who????
these animal kingdom rides at disney gettin kinda realistic
Reminds me of a rail shooter with plastic guns
Probably just attracted to the jeep 'reversing sound' 😅
This feels like the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. There is even the little pouch for your belongings below the handlebars.
Omg that's like exactly what every motion sim tries to be those people went on a T R I P man that's crazy
Oh look honey! The elephant is charging at us. This is so exciting. Quick get out your phone and video this tee hee.
Must go faster must go faster.
That’s also a manual transmission.
It looks like elephant was just trying to intimidate the tourists with a mock charge, notice how the ears are flared out as it tries to make itself appear as big as possible. In a charge meant to cause damage, elephants will usually tuck their ears in close to their body and keep their head low.
In the video with sound you can tell the elephant definitely hits the truck a few times
Someone add the spongebob chase theme song
This carries on for about 10 minutes before they realise the elephant actually has the tip of its trunk snagged in the grill.
Dude was trying to record the shit with his phone while trying to escape.
Wtf goes through people’s minds.
My fear of going on a safari is that something like this would happen, or even worse an attack by a large cat.
Its good to know that if I'm ever the leader in an emergency sitation i can rely on everyone around me to turn their brains off and their cameras on
I came to reiterate that this video is only based on a true story.
Who else hears the Jurassic park theme playing?
Wait!! You forgot your peanuts!
Must go faster
That elephant deserves at least one kill
“The name’s Mater, like tamater but without the ta”
We not gon discuss the dopes with the nopes recording the folk with the tusks, running at them in a musth, until dusk?
Wow, disney theam parks have really upped their graphics. S/
Who is driving he is a best reveser.
Someone reverse the gif
Hooman s really suck sometimes ‘
yall are going to fucking learn to leave nature alone.
PREPARE TO RAM!!!
It's a real life jungle cruise!
Seems legit https://people.com/pets/elephant-charges-jeep-safari-tour-video/
Why is it that giraffes and elephants try to reenact the scene from Jurassic park?
What amusement park is this, this looks like a cool ride.
Let’s include the sound op, https://youtu.be/5PVHrYRb7aE
Safari jeep invading the living space of innocent Elephant*
Looks like a disney ride
I can barely do a straight line on a mixed surface road, going forward.... Omg. This guy has mad skills.
Wasnt attacking the jeep it was attacking the murderous psychopathic hairless apes inside the jeep.
Wish I could control my life as awesome as he did that jeep...
The new 4D ride at Universal.
Your in the danger of getting stomped on by an elephant and the first thing she does is whip out her phone
The elephant was a paid actor
And no one thought the shot would be better filmed in landscape..
Best ride ever!
You know the guy driving is thinking about what he is going to do when he gets off work
Which episode of Animal Planet is this?
Indiana Jones-level chase.
A good safari driver always knows exactly how fast they need to reverse away from a charging elephant
This is one of the reasons I don’t go to Africa. It’s like Australia’s apprentice.
Holy shit that’s some skill going backwards.
Almost seems like this isnt his first time
Driver: “Are you guys fookin ready for some fun??!”
It's all shits and giggles, until someone giggles and shits.
I feel like they should add this to the Temple of Doom ride.
Did they dieded?
He should of tipped em over. I’m with the elephant on this one
Wish the elephant would have trampled them!! He gets tired off assholes driving thru his front yard
Imagine being the dumb cunt videoing the entire thing with your cellphone
He's sitting down, what else can he do? He's not superman my guy.
You could possibly be in your last moment alive, and what you do with it is pull out your cellphone? If you don’t think that is pathetic, then you’ve got problems.
Why are you so angry?
It’s not anger, it’s sadness for the human race
You’ll be fine. You’ll get to see all your school friends again soon.
It was like everyone there. These people give zero fucks
What do you want him to film it with? A fucking Arri Alexa?
