An elephant had no time for some tourists in a recent viral video.

In a video posted on Twitter Saturday by @Bumfluffski, which as been viewed more than four million times, a massive elephant can be seen charging a group of tourists in a vehicle. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

The driver flawlessly throws the thing into reverse, and evades getting obliterated. I have no idea how he got the job done, but he did. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

That driver belongs in a Jason Bourne movie instead of giving tourist rides. I think I’m correct when I say most people probably would have panicked in that situation. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

In fact, most people probably would have need a change in underwear. Not that driver. He threw that vehicle into reverse, hit the pedal and successfully got those people to safety.

That was a grade-A performance if I’ve ever seen one.

There’s also this other really crazy idea if you want to avoid getting crushed by an elephant, and it’s don’t go searching for them.

If you’re not near an elephant, it can’t run you over and kill you. That’s a fact. It might surprise you, but it’s 100% true.

Either way, the guy responsible for driving that vehicle deserves some major props. I know for damn sure I wouldn’t have been nearly as cool in that situation.

A gigantic beast chasing you would likely terrify most people.
