Poles usually hold up things Americans use to download porn, like electricity or cable lines, but this wasn’t the case today in Huntington, WV, when a valiant young pole stepped in front of a man who was drinking while driving.

The pole involved in the crash wasn’t seriously injured. The West Virginia Electric Company stated that the pole will be moved to his natural upright position in no time.

“This particular pole is lucky that he didn’t sustain any serious injuries. However, his age was a factor, as he is cut from the mightiest trees in the Amazon rainforest,” said a power company spokesman.

People and poles from all over are describing the pole as “very brave” and even started a viral marketing campaign to have the pole run for president.

“The pole can’t be any worse than what we have now,” said a spokeswoman from the “Pole for Prez” campaign.
