This short clip of an Aussie couple headed to the beach and narrowly missing a lightning strike might be the early favorite for funniest video of the year.
It contains no photoshopping, no dramatic scenery, no artistic build up to a punchline; it’s just the honest reaction (and commentary) of a Australian man and woman caught on tape, and subtitled for the rest of the non-Aussie world.
A bit of warning: there is some profanity in the clip, but we think that it falls under the same category as children swearing — where, yes, it is inappropriate, but at the same time quite amusing.
The video is reminiscent of the “misheard lyrics” genre, and is ridiculously entertaining. We’ve watched it no less than six times so far. Enjoy.
The chick almost getting hit by lightning in Australia, now with subtitles incase you couldn’t understand what he said! this wins the internet!
