Everyone knows that a bird defending its nest can be a terrifying thing. Or a hilarious thing, depending on your point of view. A Trader Joe’s employee named Steve was trying to demonstrate one, or possibly both of these things, when he set up shop across from a bush that he knew contained a nest.
It’s the only video on his channel, so it seems like Trader Steve must have been super excited to share a video of this bird going, as he refers to it “ape-shit” on unsuspecting passersby. Unfortunately for Steve no one is walking by at this particular time of day, and perhaps in a hurry to get back from his lunch break, he sees no choice but to offer himself as “tribute”.
The bird seems to sense what Steve is up to, as it decides to fly down, land on his car, and stare directly at him.
Which, inevitably, leads to this choice moment.
Way to take one for the team, in the name of science, Trader Steve.
