In an effort to increase public awareness, Britain’s National Health Service kicked off a campaign of placing billboards across the country encouraging people to live healthier lives. The billboards simply suggested that readers contact their doctor if they were feeling under the weather. Back in February of 2014, on a particularly windy and rainy afternoon (read: an afternoon) in Leicester, England, a man was walking down the street when he noticed that one such billboard was coming detached from the wall it was affixed to and had begun “flapping about.” The man went into the building to report the loose sign, after which he and the building’s owner came out and stood beneath it, wondering what should be done about it. They didn’t have to wait long for an answer, and that answer was “RUN!” That’s because, at that precise moment, the 15-by-30-foot sign came flying at them like a Kaiju had just finger-flicked it. It missed the building’s owner by inches, but Mr. Good Samaritan wasn’t so lucky — it landed plumb on top of him, crushing him beneath it and opening a nasty gash on his head. Shocked bystanders popped their monocles and ran to his aid, some saying the impact was so loud that it sounded like a car crash.

What You Know by Two Door Cinema Club

In a few weeks I will get time
To realise it’s right before my eyes
And I can take it if it’s what I want to do
I am leaving, this is starting to feel like
It’s right before my eyes
And I can taste it, it’s my sweet beginning
