Adam Sandler was talking to David Letterman on Tuesday night (to promote his new film 'Grown Ups 2') when talked turned to that time he was on safari in South Africa and was attacked by a cheetah.

Hey, it could happen to anyone.

Sandler was apparently invited to give a cheetah water out of his hands -- which, if you ask us, sounds like a terrible idea -- when she jumped on his back and tried to either eat him or make him her king.

And yes, they got it all on video, which you can see around the 1:28 mark.

Thankfully the cheetah's handler was able to take control of the situation before things got bloody. Aka before Sandler's obituary read "death by cheetah."
