This video doesn’t need a lot of setup: A young man steps out of a pickup, heads for the front entrance of a building, and then is promptly blindsided by an oncoming deer.
The security-camera footage was filmed in early April in a British Columbia parking lot. The clip makes clear that the deer had little trouble toppling unsuspecting 25-year-old Cary McCook. The animal knocks McCook to the ground, sending him flying a couple of feet, before it then runs out of the shot.
ABC News reports that McCook, an aspiring rapper, was unharmed by the wild tackle. He plans to write a song about the experience, he later told reporters.
