Having grown up on an island where a ferry ride was the only way to get to the mainland, I can tell you that there’s only a small handful of ferry-related rules you need to know:

  1. Don’t get run over by a ferry
  2. Don’t get run over by a ferry
  3. Seriously, do not get run over by a ferry

This cool guy? He broke all three rules:

And yet he lived to survive. What does this tell us about ferry travel in the digital age?

  1. Still, do not get run over by a ferry.
  2. It is not worth trying to look cool by doing a cool-guy walk off a ferry, even if someone is filming, because you might get run over by a ferry.
  3. If you do get run over by a ferry, do not give up. You may be able to compensate for falling beneath the gangplank of a ferry by scrambling to your feet before you get crushed.
  4. Always film ferry arrivals; you never know when a guy might get run over by a ferry.
  5. If you are filming a ferry arrival, turn your phone sideways, because a guy might get run over by a ferry but somehow survive, meaning you’ll have gold on your hands.
  6. SERIOUSLY DO NOT GET RUN OVER BY A FERRY. WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?
