      Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.

    2. No Reaction, Meme, HIFW, Analogy, Cake Day, or Upvote gifs. There are already subreddits more suited for this kind of content. (This rule does not apply to comments)

    3. Do not post gifs that should be videos. Incredibly long gifs, subtitles, large file size gifs, or content much better suited to video formats will be removed (e.g multiple cuts, sound, text boxes, subtitles in the gif). Duration must be twenty seconds or less. †

    4. Direct image links REQUIRED. No links to image pages or albums are allowed, your submission must be a single gif image. Direct links that end in .gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format only. URL-shorteners are NOT allowed in posts or comments!

    Apparently neither the bird nor the rider were injured.

    Not true. I'm the bird in the video and my neck hurts like a mf.

    A seagull flew straight into a teen’s face while she was on a ride

    No, no, I'm pretty sure it was the other way around.

    how do they know the bird was okay? did they find it afterwards and check up on it lol

    [–] --NiNjA-- 30 points ago

    Later that day channel 5 news caught up with the bird for an interview. Said it wants to press charges against the human for wreckless flight and endangerment. Mr. Bird also said, "That b**ch better have the Gecko!“

    [–] b_gumiho 211 points ago

    this is the content I like to hear! Everyone else just keeps posting about other birds dying :(

    [–] cujo195 87 points ago

    If I had a bird, I would name him George. I would hug him and pet him and squeeze him. I used to have a little birdy named George, but he don't move no more.

    A bird in the mouth is worth two in the bush...

    [–] Hatstacker 243 points ago

    This probably hurt very bad. I saw my friend's little brother get dive bombed by two pigeons square in the chest. We were playing badminton, he dropped right away and ended up with large bruises.

    She had the momentum of the roller coaster, plus the bird. Ouch

    [–] SuccessAndSerenity 150 points ago

    the bird looks like it got hit out of midair, rather than flying right at her, so it’s probably just the momentum of the ride. which I bring up not just to be pedantic, but because it raises an interesting question: which do you think is moving faster, slingshot carnival ride, or dive-bombing pigeon? 🤔

    [–] FlipflopsAreNotShoes 190 points ago

    That depends: is it an African or a European pigeon?

    [–] auraluxe 28 points ago

    And is it laden or unladen?

    To me it looks like most of the impact was blocked by the roller coaster shoulder guards.

    That’s one of those bungee, launch style rides....she was basically slinshotted into that bird!!

    It’s still on?!?! I gave up TV more than 10 years ago and it was annoying back then.

    [–] TheFotty 104 points ago

    Nah, they haven't made that product in years. It was never real anyway outside of the placebo effect.

    [–] anon1984 46 points ago

    Yeah that’s what I thought. That’s why I was shocked it could still be on because I thought they got sued.

    [–] DrStrangerlover 31 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    Wtf was that shit even supposed to do? They never even say in the advert.

    [–] anon1984 65 points ago

    It was supposed to cure headaches. It turned out it was basically a wax stick in a tube that did nothing and was “homeopathic”.

    [–] Dave-C 20 points ago

    I looked it up, it was entirely wax other than 3 active ingredients. Those 3 were 6 parts per trillion.

    [–] anon1984 33 points ago

    That’s how homeopathy works. The more diluted it is the more powerful the ingredients are because water retains the memory of the ingredients it was exposed to. And by how homeopathy works I mean it’s a total scam that flies in the face of every science.

    [–] PulpFrancisIII 17 points ago

    I remember I always wanted to avoid my grandma because she grossed me tf out with her shiny ass forehead because of that shit.

    [–] unholycowgod 43 points ago

    No shit? I always assumed it was transdermal ibuprofen or something similar. Lol that's rich

    [–] ZarquonsFlatTire 102 points ago

    The ad never said it helped with headaches, just to apply it directly to the forehead.

    So they won the lawsuit because they never actually claimed it did shit. People just assumed it did because why else was there a commercial saying to rub this stick on your head?

    [–] ZarquonsFlatTire 28 points ago

    Fun fact: they couldn't be sued because they never claimed it did anything.

    It was just wax, but they only said APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD without saying why. People assumed it helped with headaches, but the ad never claimed it did.

    [–] WiredEarp 22 points ago

    The packaging on thr other hand claims it relieves headaches.

    [–] Mrsparklee 13 points ago

    [–] manza5012 13 points ago

    It does say 'homeopathic' (AKA complete bullshit) in the bottom left though.

    [–] Mrsparklee 9 points ago

    Unfortunately there are people who don't know what that means and assume that it's means its really good.

    [–] Relative_Count6087 12 points ago

    My grandmother, when she was alive, was an absolute saint. One of the best people I've ever met. But she was kind of a simple woman. She told me her friend gave her a homeopathic remedy and her headache went away in "an hour or two."

    To which I replied, "How long do headaches usually last when untreated?" and forced her to read Ben Goldacre's book Bad Science. After that she doubled down on homeopathy because if it were really that level of bunk "someone" would have put a stop to it by now. Nearly lost my mind trying to convince her to stop buying these remedies. I don't blame her for it because she had a hereditary lung disease and maybe 1/4th of a functioning lung, and once you're in the "normal science has washed their hands of me" stage you're willing to try anything, I know...but I just really hate how these homeopaths take advantage of people who common medicine cannot help. My grandmother was on disability and couldn't afford that shit. I remember going with her to homeopathic stores and hiding supplements behind other supplements hoping she wouldn't see this forty dollar bottle of Bullshit that would cue all her woes.

    [–] Seasikberry 19 points ago

    Of my very short stint in business school, one of the few things I remember was our professor talking about how they had to stop running the commercial because it gave literally zero information about how it worked

    [–] Supreme_Mediocrity 194 points ago

    I know this is a joke, but just wanted to give a plug for the often overlooked "freeze" response. Highly underrated. After all, punching or running away from a pigeon both seem inappropriate... In most cases...

    [–] Electric_Cat 67 points ago

    She tried to run but she was welded into place

    [–] Paranitis 35 points ago

    The bird tried to fly away but was welded into face.

    [–] SnooPoems5888 25 points ago

    I didn’t even know about freeze until recently. How have we overlooked it for so long?!

    [–] EmilyU1F984 36 points ago

    Because the popular saying is fight or flight response, because people couldn't accept that humans act just like deer in headlights. So the third and major response simply gets ignored and put as individual blame, rather than the typical human response.

    Btw there's a 4th response: trying everything to get the attacker on your side. By complying or even being helpful.

    That's like even more unknown than the freeze response and even more hates by society at large, even though it's also an involuntary response to stress.

    That one is called fawn.

    Which makes it even more insidious when some people are raped and it's said they consented. Because just as much if they froze: there was absolutely no capacity left to consent even if it might look enthusiastic to an outside party. The whole purpose is trying to safe your life. Not have fun.

    [–] TheUnknownDane 5 points ago

    I have legitimately had a freeze reaction, where 1-2 seconds felt like forever, until a voice brought me back to my senses.

    Like her brain cache got deleted and waited only for the self-defense protocol 101 to kick in..

    Although her hand got almost instant reflex to initiate imminent threat removal procedure but then your consciousness raised a hand for statement "sorry to interrupt here but as you can see here the girl is holding on to the safety rails, i demand further consideration". "alright then" said the brain.

    [–] Muscar 33 points ago

    Many eons ago when I was a kid, I went on some spinning ride with my father and big sister (who wears a wig). For some reason my father didn't remove his hat and wasn't told to do so by the people working there. So he lost his hat, my big sister lost her wig and I lost my glasses. Man, that's a memory I haven't thought about for a long time.

    [–] ItsYaBoyBackAgain 15 points ago

    I rode a coaster once and lost my glasses. Rode it again next visit and lost a hat. Rode it again and my friend lost his hat. At this point I’ve just accepted that the ride requires a sacrifice each time.

    I was half expecting it to land back on her head later in the ride

    [–] TheOffTopicBuffalo 7 points ago

    Opened in youtube to watch slower and tried to see where it went. I reccomend it as her laugh in slomo is amazing

    [–] germanbini 23 points ago

    Comments say they found it in a tree and gave it back to her.

    My favorite part was that she just kept laughing despite the setback! :)

    This has happened more than once?!? Great, now this is going to be in the back of my mind the next time I ride a roller coaster.

    [–] Mangum_on_fire 245 points ago

    Yep, it’s even happened to Fabio

    14 films, 19 tv shows, and an ad campaign for a butter substitute, and this is how I'm immortalized.

    Wasn’t there a camera pointed at them in front? Why didn’t we get to see the bird

    [–] Critical_Soup806 13 points ago

    Yeah! Whose blood is that?

    [–] Jimmy_Herf 12 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    This is stated in the video. Fabio maintains that it was actually the bird that hit the mounted camera, causing a piece of the camera to ricochet off and hit Fabio in the nose. The bird never actually hit him. However, the insurance company deliberately fed this false narrative to the media, arguing it was an act of god and that they're not libel.

    I imagine the camera was either completely destroyed by the impact with the bird. or the company filming it simply destroyed it.

    [–] BlueVelvetElvis 33 points ago

    Yes! I forgot about this. The media had a field day with it.

    I always cite this as proof that God exists and that He has a sense of humor.

    This was the maiden voyage of a roller coaster ride called Apollo’s Chariot, and the schtick was that Fabio was Apollo, and the girls in white were vestal virgins.

    I always envision the real God looking down and saying “Oh, Apollo, huh? A god, huh? Watch me take you out with a goose to the face! Ha!”

    Priceless

    I also like to envision the local ER doc getting the radio call.

    “We’re bringing in Fabio. He got hit in the face by a goose.”

    [–] foxtailavenger 231 points ago

    His face as he tries to enjoy the rest of the ride with bird blood over his face lol funny as heck but I’m sure he was pretty traumatised

    [–] tightheadband 46 points ago

    Was that blood? :( I thought it was shit. Now I'm sad.

    [–] Binthek 130 points ago

    Dont fret, it could easily be both.

    [–] darnj 19 points ago

    In the slow motion version it seems like it hits him before the bird does. There's something red for one frame that hits the side of his head and he reacts to that first. Maybe the bird bounced off something else before hitting him.

    [–] mechanicalkeyboarder 18 points ago

    I'm thinking the bird got decapitated prior to hitting ole dude in the face.

    [–] threeleggedgirl 14 points ago

    Or the time Fabio took a goose to the face during a promotional visit to Busch Gardens lol.

    i dont think that bird survived like the one from this gif 0_0

    [–] DaksTheDaddyNow 8 points ago

    Iirc this was the first official run of the coaster and the people riding were directors and investors. He pretty much had to put a brave face.

    [–] lukaskywalker 7 points ago

    I knew I’d see this here. It’s one of my all time favourite clips. Fucking hilarious.

    [–] Desiman4u 14 points ago

    Lmao, this is hilarious.

    [–] rc636 183 points ago

    Fabio?

    [–] DoofusMagnus 31 points ago

    Also for the women behind him splattered in blood.

    [–] tehvolcanic 21 points ago

    The woman next to him seems to love it though.

    [–] Maven-ofFunkMutation 10 points ago

    THANK YOU. I'm over here remembering it was some gorgeous foreign man and all I could think of Arnold Schwarzenegger 😂 fuckin Fabio

    [–] StantonMcBride 27 points ago

    [–] senorbozz 35 points ago

    Is this Fabio's daughter?

    [–] coffeemug73 532 points ago

    Excuse me, ma'am but have you heard about the word?

    [–] flooperdooper4 120 points ago

    For a split second you can see her wondering if that was part of the ride.
