In the American locales that are plagued with the seasonal scourge of heavy snowfall, there are no shortage of ways in which the afflicted residents will curse the heavenly burden.
If you’ve never lived in such a place, let me paint a picture for you: You awaken in the morning, hit the snooze button one extra time, and then make a startling realization as you peek out the blinds. It has snowed, and snowed significantly, and there’s no way that you’ll be getting your car out of the driveway without an extra 35 sweaty-yet-frigid minutes of shoveling frozen water.
One ingenious Kentuckian looks to have channeled his snow-rage into a creative solution to shoveling the driveway.
Timothy Browning stunned fans after a relative filmed him standing in his driveway wearing nothing but a white bathrobe, socks, slippers and a hat, recreating Cousin Eddie from the iconic holiday movie “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”
While his attire alone would turn heads, it was Browning’s unique method of removing snow from his driveway with a flamethrower that won the Internet.
“Browning snow services removal now available!” a woman filming Browning, of Ashland, Ky., says at the start of the video.
In the nearly 30-second clip, Browning chugs a beer and throws it on the ground as he casually watches the giant flames in front of him melt away the flakes.
“God bless American rednecks!” Browning wrote on Facebook, where he posted the footage.
A neighbor also captured the moment.
