September 07, 2022: The roads passing through a forest are undoubtedly full of challenges. As a forest is an animal’s natural habitat, the encounter between humans and animals is bound to occur on these roads. A video of a similar encounter has recently caught netizens’ attention on social media. In the video, a wild elephant comes vis-à-vis a car on a road in the middle of a jungle.

What do you do when you’re itchy and you’re an elephant? 😂 pic.twitter.com/fYUMYdlO5z— Buitengebieden (@buitengebieden) September 6, 2022
In the viral video, the elephant is seen coming out on the road passing through the forest, probably thinking that it was in its territory. Without being afraid of the car or its driver, it started rubbing itself against the four-wheeler. The elephant first climbs on the tire of the car with one foot. After that, it also attempts to sit on the car’s bonnet. He then climbs onto the car and descends while breaking the front, as well the side-view mirror, of the vehicle. The destruction caused to the car can be seen towards the end of the clip.
The video was shared by Buitengebieden with a funny caption, which read, “What do you do when you’re itchy and you’re an elephant?”
In less than a day, the video amassed more than 2.1 million views. Thousands of Twitterati have flooded the comment section with their take on the clip. One user jokingly wrote, “I’m imagining explaining this to the insurance company.”
