Confused Deer Emits a Blood Curdling Scream at Two Men Who Can’t Stop Giggling

While visiting Nara, Japan, filmmaker Gavin Shapiro and composer Jason Doornick encountered a stray deer. Neither man expected the petite animal to emit such odd noises, particularly the blood-curdling scream that followed and led to an uncontrollable human giggle fit, which seemed to alarm the confused deer even more.

We noticed this lone deer making strange whining sounds and thought it was pretty funny. But we could not have prepared ourselves for what happened next. Easily one of the funniest and most unexpected moments of me and my friends’ lives.
