Movies. They entertain us, they transport us to different worlds, and they give us an excuse to awkwardly make out with each other. But did you know you can also learn powerful life lessons from the movies? It’s true! Movies remind us of some of the most basic life lessons that we learned as kids, and should impart to our children: be kind to others, let your conscience be your guide, and of course, time travel is not to be messed with.
But of all of the life lessons, most importantly the movies remind us to always look both ways before you cross the street.
If you are in a movie and are in the process of telling someone something important and/or ironic as you walk out into the street, there is a 98.4% chance that you are about to be comically obliterated by a bus/car/truck. The only other movie death that is MORE certain is if you are in a war movie and you won’t stop showing your squad mates a picture of your “gal back home”. That certainty of death percentage is north of 99%.
Who knew that buses in movies have a higher body count than Jason Voorhees? Harry Hanrahan, that’s who. Hanrahan, who has masterminded numerous supercuts, has kindly edited together cinema’s finest Hit By A Bus death scenes and put them all in one wonderful place that will prevent us all from actually working today – The Internet. Brace yourself, and FOR GOD’S SAKES look both ways before you cross the street (note: this supercut is a bit NSFW, due to language and bus-carnage):
If you’re looking to identify all of the movies contained in that video, Hanrahan has got you covered HERE.
Know of any other hit-by-a-bus scenes that are missing from this supercut? Has your favorite hit-by-a-bus scene now been rendered useless now that you see how often it gets exploited? Are you now definitely looking both ways before you cross the street? Let us know below. And, as an added bonus, please enjoy another one of my favorite supercuts from Harry Hanrahan, the 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time (this one’s DEFINITELY NSFW):
