A Close Encounter With A Grumpy Yellowstone Buffalo

Mar 6, 2015
In a hilarious case of life imitating art, this video by Tom Carter has been noted by many viewers for its similarity to a State Farm commercial that's been on the air for a few months. Both feature passengers in a car being threatened by an angry buffalo, but sadly for Tom and his friend Suzie Hollingsworth, there was no insurance agent ready to whisk them away.

A retired Yellowstone Park ranger now in his 60s, Tom still takes regular trips to the park. He says that these buffalo had been antagonized by a few other cars, and that's why they charged. He says he was just "in the right place at the wrong time." The total damages to the car were roughly $2,700, but maybe State Farm feels like helping with that.
