Reader Jamie Standing took his African experience to a whole new level and in the process created one of the greatest photos ever to grace TNT.

“This was on an amazing trip through Kruger Park and, yes, was incredibly stupid of me,” Jamie said.

No-one knows if the elephant was curious, jealous or simply laughed at his, err, smaller new friend. However, another member of the South African community was not so reserved in his opinion of Jamie’s antics.

“Just don’t do it in front of an Afrikaans family,” Jamie warned copycats.

“The dad came out of the car and hit me fair on the mouth as I ran back to the road.”

We reckon it was a small price to pay for the photo of a lifetime. Good on ya, Jamie!
