Armed with Slayer, American Flag and the power of Florida Florida Man defends SC from hurricane (Video)

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.  – The Florida man who went viral during Hurricane Matthew has done it again in the midst of Hurricane Florence.

Lane Pittman became a viral sensation after he was seen holding an American flag while headbanging to Slayer when Hurricane Matthew hit Florida.

Now, years later, Pittman and his flag have re-emerged to “slay” Hurricane Florence.

News 4 Jax reports the stuntman traveled to Myrtle Beach after raising $150 through GoFundMe.

“Pay for my gas/coffee and I’ll go fight Hurricane Florence. MERICA BABY!!! We stick together,” Pittman told donors.

And he came through.



On Friday, Pittman posted a video on Twitter with the caption “YOU ARE WEAK AND SMALL FLORENCE!!!!! FLORIDA MAN IS HERE!!!!!”

He can be seen holding the flag and staring down Florence like only a headbanger could.

“Just being free and American. I don’t let nothing oppress me, especially no dang, freaking hurricane,” he told Fox Business Network reporter Kristina Partsinevelos, who watched the stunt unfold.
