A comedian from Victoria, Texas, impersonated intrepid meteorologist Jim Cantore as part of a series of extreme weather spoofs as Hurricane Nicholas bore down on the Gulf Coast.
The September 12 videos show Cody Shugart giving a live “weather update” while mimicking Cantore’s yelling cadence and mannerisms. The second half of the video shows Shugart ordering a drink at a Dairy Queen in his same outdoor hurricane voice.
Hurricane Nicholas made landfall on September 14, bringing strong winds and life-threatening flooding to the upper Texas coast, Louisiana, southern Mississippi, and southern Alabama, the NHC said. Credit: Cody Shugart via Storyful
