I'll bet this guy's trying to figure out exactly what he did to deserve this...
Man that would stink.

Stu, that was cool!!
I said fake after the first bolt, his shoes or none of his clothing was smoking. Generally when it is raining, you are wet, get hit by that and you will smoke something somewhere. Let alone get up and walk THE SECOND TIME!!!
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

Has to be fake... first he got up and second how do you get footage like this ... how often are you filming a scene in the dark hoping somebody will get struck by lightening????

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
Even if it was real imagine trying to explain to the boss why you were late or didn't make it to work.
I was struck twice by lightening.
RIGHT!!!!!! Let me see the hole in the bottom of your foot.

OK, I'll buy the idea that it was faked (good find, Stu), but I'll attest to the fact that a person can be thrown to the ground by lightning and walk away. It has happened to me. The condensed version:
1. Decide to add a quart of oil to truck in rain
2. Lightning hits truck
3. Watch fat blue spark jump from engine block to my right forearm
4. Pick self up off the parking lot pavement
5. Say to heck with the oil and get back in the truck
No video, but true story.

I have a friend who's neighbor was struck twice by lightning in his own yard (Freeland, PA). It was several years apart...but did happen.
