Guy trying to take a selfie gets kicked in the face by train conductor

Perhaps this should be the punishment of all selfie takers. Or at least all selfie takers who put themselves in potentially dangerous situations just to take a damn picture of their mug blocking everything behind it. Jared Michael, the foolish guy in the video, paid the price. He tried to take a selfie in front of a passing train but instead got kicked in the head by the train conductor.

I'm not sure why he was taking a video selfie but maybe that's the next level of selfie-ing.

Ha ha funny, right? There actually might be a reason for all this (other than teaching the poor sap a lesson on safety). Reddit detectives sifted out a frame in the video where it shows the train conductor's kick as actually blocking a metal protrusion on the train. A swift kick in the face is a helluva lot nicer than a hole in your head. You can see it below:

I still think the kick was warranted.
