Jared Michael reminds us why it’s never a good idea to take a selfie next to a moving train.

The video uploaded on Tuesday shows Jared apparently standing next to a train track.

“I tried to take a selfie while a train passed a ‘safe’ distance behind. I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head,” Jared writes in the video description.

Jared had a sense of humor about the incident.

“I messed up,” he said.

It remains unclear where the video was filmed.
