Snip, snip, CRASH! Snip, snip...

Damn, this guy had better get some kind of award from the local Chamber of Commerce:
An SUV crashed into an Anchorage barber shop, narrowly missing shop owner Heng Song and his two customers.

But Song wasn't about to let the horrifying moment get in the way of a good haircut.

He was momentarily stunned, yes, when the vehicle burst through a door and window Wednesday afternoon as he was clipping a customer's hair.

"Half a haircut and kaboom!" is how the 53-year-old native of South Korea described it Thursday, after the shop had been cleared of debris and the gaping hole was boarded with plywood.


Song laughed Thursday as the footage showed him soon return to the chair and continue the haircut, while in the background bystanders began to gather. There's no way he would let a loyal customer go home with a botched job, Song said.

Leaving a customer with half a haircut, he said, would be "something too ugly."

On top of that, Song gave both customers haircuts on the house. He said it's the least he could do after the ordeal.
The police then had him tested for drugs, because, seriously, nobody is that good-natured.

I think it's awesome that that he finished the haircuts and all, but I'm not sure I'd necessarily want someone handling scissors around my head after something quite that jarring.
