Remember that episode of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo where Skippy skips his anger management session, takes too many steroids, drinks his own body weight in Stella, reads something properly irritating on the internet, and heads out onto country roads in the middle of the night with the sole aim of smashing up a car? No? Well, that’s probably because it didn’t happen in any Skippy the Bush Kangaroo episode ever.
This remarkable dash-cam footage of a kangaroo attacking a car in Australia, however, is sure to have TV producers pondering the potential for a gritty Skippy-reboot in the style of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. One minute the car driver is driving along, minding his own business, the next he’s swearing loudly in response to a kangaroo jumping feet-first at his windscreen.
Fackin’ kangaroo, indeed.
