Ever heard of Frankie MacDonald? He’s a 28 year old autistic man who lives in Sydney, Nova Scotia. He’s got a thing for creating weather alert videos, which he posts on Youtube. Some of them are outright classics, such as Severe Earthquake Warning for California, Severe Onion Rings Warning for Southern Australia, and Severe Ping Pong Warning for Japan.
Now, as you can imagine, Frankie’s somewhat odd take on weather, along with his condition have resulted in some pretty unflattering comments, especially on Youtube, where the average IQ of a commenter is below that of a brain-dead moose. Frankie himself has said that he finds these comments “rude and disrespectful. Some of the people make fun of me on the Internet and it is not a nice thing to do. I have a good heart.”
And that’s what I like about the guy. He knows that people make fun of him, but he doesn’t let that hold him back. He goes out and does what he loves. Wouldn’t the world be a much better place if we all embraced our inner Frankie MacDonald and did the things we loved, regardless of what everyone else had to say?
I like the side-to-side lobster rain best. Dude is better than some of the weather reporters out there. Frankie reminds me of a guy I know. After Japan’s 2011 earthquake, he was running around telling everyone, “Japan’s getting hit by a giant salami!!”
Japan getting hit by a giant salami:
Jesus, I’ve actually seen that before. Japan and their salami:
Yes, the world would definitely be a better place if we embraced our inner Frankie.
People, especially Youtube commentors, can be suck jerks.
That’s kind of funny, if you think about it. The lowest, stupidest people on the internet making fun of someone else. Way to cast that first stone, morons.
Someone needs to add lobsters to that video for him.
Oh man, I wish I had the video skillz to do that. It would absolutely make Frankie’s head explode with joy.
