Lightning Strikes, Destroys Tree In Front Of Guys Filming, They Go Nuts

August 30, 2017

Note: Colorful language, like a beautiful rainbow.

This is a video of Oliver filming a storm from a screened porch when lightning strikes and destroys a large pine right outside, dropping its whole top half on the building below. Oliver and his friend go absolutely nuts. Also, I'm pretty sure that building is going to need some roof repair. Call me, I know a guy. "Are you that guy?" Yes, I am that guy. "And you're licensed and insured to repair roofs?" Whoa whoa whoa -- licensed and insured? I'm fixing a roof, not driving a car. "So that's a no?" That's an absolute no, that shit costs money and I'm totally cool packing my bags and skipping town.

Keep going for the video, but there's no need to watch the entire 9 minutes after the strike unless you're really, really bored. The two guys going nuts was a treat though.

Thanks to Luc, who's convinced he can will lightning to strike where he wants it to and should prove it by hitting my roommate's car.

    I would love to see that in slo-mo. At some point a large piece of the house got sent high up into the tree branches because you can see it fall to the ground with the large branch.
    Oh...nm..it's a split piece of the tree.
    Impressive!

    Start at about 0:48 to see just the lightning strike and its aftermath.

    What you're listening here are French Canadian from Québec trying to speak French as an equivalent to American rednecks missing as many teeth as years in primary school trying to speak English, or even "ebony language" from the hood for you old school out there. Not having a full set of vocabulary options, they borrow a lot of expressions from the English language as you can hear from the knee-jerk reaction of their brain trying to fetch an appropriate sentiment and copying what they heard on the image box (TV).

    I'm sorry on their behalf for you having to listen to this.

    French Canadians are the WORST.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    What the -? French Canadian rednecks maybe, along with the politicians. The rest of us are totally fine. Especially if you compare with our english neighbour, we're way more warm and welcoming, and that's saying something when you consider the average canadian hospitality.

    We should totally get married so I can move up north.

  • Why would they just randomly be filming that tree? That was perfectly set up, crazy!

  • Ollie Williams

    Clearly this is fake and the people filming knew a guy, who has a brother, who had a roommate in college, who's cousin is Zeus.
