(WREG-TV) There’s a smart time and place to take a ‘selfie’ and then there’s this guy.

Most people take still picture ‘selfies’ but for whatever reason, Jared Michael decided to use the video option and what he caught was a foot to the head.

The 10 second video clip starts Michael standing next to a train track as a train approaches.

Obviously, not a smart move.

Within seconds the train begins to race by and in a blur you see the leg of a person standing on an outside platform of the train’s engine stick out a black boot and kick Michael in the side of the head.

“I tried to take a selfie while a train passed a ‘safe’ distance behind,” wrote Jared in the YouTube caption.  “I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head. I messed up.”

Jared posted the video on Youtube Tuesday and by Wednesaday it was closing in on 300,000 views.
