Thailand has really blown Kim Kardashian away! The social media-happy reality star, 33, got a rude awakening on Friday, March 28 when she tried to take a bikini selfie with a local elephant.

As she smiled for the picture with the elephant behind her, the animal blew air out of its trunk and onto Kardashian's hair, causing her to panic and run away from the blast.

Obviously, she wasn't hurt, just startled, but the hilarious photographs of the event are likely to start plenty of comical GIFs and Internet memes (like our GIF above).

The Kardashian-Jenner clan is filming scenes for their upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in Southeast Asia. In addition to their beachside frolicking, they have also visited a local orphanage to do charity work.

Apart from the "elephant attack," Kim seems to be enjoying her family vacation. She posed for some bikini pictures on Phang-Nga Beach in Phuket, Thailand and visited local temples, which she documented on Instagram.
