Did he really stop a charging elephant with a show of hand?
This man is either really stupid or really brave.
A tourist gets more than he bargained for when an elephant at the Phu Luang Wildlife Sanctuary in Thailand charges at him without warning.
Instead of running for his life, he simply raises his arms to stop him.
And... it worked.
The elephant quickly turns around and goes back into the jungle.
The unperturbed tourist then turns around and gives the cameraman a smile.
Is this some kind of hoax? You decide.
