Watch: Australian man saves his beer after being kicked by kangaroo

In possibly the most Australian video you’ll see today, a man who confronted a kangaroo and then got kicked in the chest still managed to save the can of beer he was holding despite falling to the ground.


The video footage was captured by the man’s daughter, Bree Tuohey, who filmed her father confronting the kangaroo at their home in Bendigo, Victoria.

The man, believed to be called Daniel Tuohey, was attempting to rescue his dogs after they were approached by a kangaroo.

Still carrying his beer, he approached the kangaroo and tried to push it away, but got scratched and kicked to the floor in the process.

Demonstrating true Aussie skill, Tuohey saved his can of beer as he fell and quickly got back to his feet.

Speaking to 9News after the incident, he said that he was preventing the kangaroo from attacking his dogs and potentially drowning them in the pond behind them.

His daughter added that while they had both laughed about the incident afterwards, her father had been very lucky.

“I was just hoping that it didn’t go any further than what it did, I was a bit shocked, it was very scary, I’m not sure what I would have done if it had have kept going,” she said.

Daniel Tuohey suffered deep cuts and bruises, but both he and his dogs survived the incident with minor scrapes.

The video has since been viewed over around 358,000 times and has received over 5,000 shares.

In June last year, a man fleeing the London Bridge terror attack also showed similar skill in preserving his pint of beer.

While those around him can be seen running down the street, away from the violence that claimed the lives of seven people and injured 48 more, many critically, the man can be seen walking with his pint, not spilling a drop, redefining what it means to ‘keep calm and carry on’.

He was since identified as Paul Armstrong from Liverpool, with a relative posting on Facebook with the caption: “That’s what happens when you’re a Scouser paying London pint prices”.
