Basehunters Chasing YouTube screenshot

The footage you're about to see below, of a supercell storm forming over the Wyoming sky, is so shockingly bigger than life that you could easily mistake it for something out of a Roland Emerich film.

My fingers are still shaking from the massive adrenaline rush that the footage gave me. Darkness has descended upon the U.S., and HOLY CRAP DID YOU SEE THE GREEN FLASHES OF ETERNAL DAMNATION INSIDE THE DEATH CLOUD?

Oh, and Twitter was sh*#ing itself in real time as it went down:

Luckily for everyone involved these are pretty harmless despite looking more sinister than a tornado.
