AUSTIN -- It's the bird catch seen 'round the world.

Austin Stone Community Church pastor Matt Carter and former Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy were out on a promotional video shoot for the book they recently co-authored, The Real Win, when the unexpected happened. A quail flew right at Matt and, seemingly unfazed, he caught it with his bare hand.

Now, video of that moment has gone viral, appearing on websites like The Huffington Post, and it has even been re-tweeted by NBA star Shaquille O'Neal. As of the afternoon of May 16, the YouTube video has more than one million views since it was published Monday May 13.

Matt and the Austin cinematographer who captured the jaw-dropping moment on camera, Jacob Hamilton, spoke to KVUE.com online correspondent Rebekah Hood about the crazy catch and how it feels to "go viral." Click the player above to watch their interview.
