If you haven't already seen the best fake weather report ever, stop reading this and click play on the video below. If you have seen it, then we are here to help you figure out why this report happened.
The report was created by a guy named Aaron Justus who used to work for a station in Richmond, Virginia with the call sign WTVR-CBS 6. He was getting ready to leave the station and decided to put together the fake forecast as a farewell sendoff. He explained some more on his blog recently as well:
This video was never on air. It was part of an ongoing joke between me and the production crew. During commercial breaks, I would show these graphics (like the volcano and the coyote) to entertain my coworkers. It wasn't until my last day of work (June 26, 2011) that I decided to throw it all together into one ridiculous weathercast. Surprisingly, it only took me three tries to get through the entire weathercast without laughing.
The daily grind of TV finally wore me down, which is why I decided to change careers and enter the brewing industry. I attended the American Brewers Guild and moved to San Diego, CA. I am now a brewer at Ballast Point Brewing and Spirits.
To recap, Justus is now a brewer of beer in San Diego and wins our award for Best Weatherman Ever. Check out the lava, tidal waves, and Godzilla below.
