I feel like there must be an interesting backstory to this. It's a video of a storm that unleashed its fury on Missouri this past week. In it, there's a skeleton who appears to be hanging on for dear life. Really.

There are some things I know about this video and some things I don't know. I know this video shows the storm that went through the St. Louis area on July 16, 2023. Here's the description shared with the video:

Video filmed by christoferguson shows heavy rain and strong wind lash a property’s backyard and deck. “Yet another damaging storm out of nowhere,” christoferguson wrote in a post containing the video. The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for the St Louis area on July 16 and warned of hail and wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour.

No mention of what's going on with the skeleton? C'mon. Inquiring minds want to know.

It's worth noting that 70 mph winds are nearly hurricane-force if they were sustained which makes this video even stranger. That means it's a skeleton on a deck in St. Louis, Missouri trying to survive a near hurricane? Of course it is. Or at least I hope it is. The only other option is this was a real person and their skin got blown off. Ouch.
