The footage shows a tourist getting a bit to close for comfort for one elephant as they trek through the Thai jungle.

The elephant is shown hiding behind the trees, just minding his own business when a curious tourist in a bright blue t-shirt approaches him.

Needless to say, the tourist doesn’t exactly blend into the background of grass and branches as he makes his way through the rainforest track.

The elephant quickly decides that the tourist has stepped to far into his territory. He dramatically starts to charge at the surprised tourist.

Frozen in fear, the tourist lifts his hand. Luckily, this appears to do the trick and the elephant soon shrugs him off, recognizing that the dopey man doesn’t pose much of a threat.

Watch the amazing footage below:
