Nice try Skippy.

In an act that would make Alf Stewart proud, an Australian man has manged to save the beer he was holding, despite feeling the full force of a kangaroo kick.

The man’s daughter Bree Tuohey, who can be heard hysterically laughing in the background, uploaded the video to her personal Facebook and in less than a day the hilarious footage has gone viral.

In the video, Bree can be heard laughing at her dad Daniel and warning him the kangaroo is coming before the huge animal kicks him straight in the chest in Victoria, Australia.

Kangaroos and humans regularly come to blows down under.

And sometimes of course, it’s vice versa.
