Our hearts go out to the Hugh(s) that were watching this live broadcast. With that being said, the weather man handled the prank like a champion. His reaction was nothing but wholesome. He had just the kind of infectious laughter that gets the rest of the room going.

In terms of sheer destructive power, tornados rank pretty high up there. Everyone has heard stories of people getting sucked out of their homes while taking a bath, forced to surf their tub before landing in a field somewhere, and watching a weather event up close really drives home the reality of the danger. Why didn't he drive away?

A massive ice drift on the Amur River in Eastern Russia climbed up the banks of the town of Khabarovsk, smashing a metal barricade. While the drift didn't hurt anyone, it did succeed in looking like an angry ancient river god trying to invade dry land. It's like a slow motion tsunami.

A few years back in Colorado, this guy got caught in a hailstorm that destroyed his windows and totaled his car. Sometimes life just isn't fair.

Sometimes the best way to fight ignorance is with a hearty heaping of pure and unadulterated sarcasm. This weatherman clearly hit his breaking point, and decided to let the people have it.

Floods are some of the most destructive natural phenomena out there, and here's a great example of how insane it is to get stuck in one. These guys in Brazil got a first hand experience of being stuck in a car with thousands of gallons of water rushing around and over them.

Recent icy rain and winds in Russia have been battering and weakening infrastructure, especially this concrete slab that came down onto this guy's car just as he was clearing it of some ice. It might be the worst way to get out of having to scrape ice off your car in the morning.

Fairly certain that a weather forecast has never been this British, and it's absolutely brilliant.

Behold the petrified look of a weather reporter who got blindsided by Rick Astley himself. Fortunately, Rick Astley seems like a cool and understanding dude who doesn't pitch a fit when someone doesn't like his music.

He didn't miss a beat when the technology failed like it did. Kudos to the dude for keeping a straight face as well.

We have no idea what Charlie was thinking. He completely committed to a strikingly dumb and insensitive couple jokes. The silence that followed made complete sense.

Just imagine running out of gas. This footage is of a tornado out in Wray, CO, and was filmed by storm chaser and meteorologist, Reed Timmer.

Matt M McKnight was driving in Washington state when he came across this "tumbleweed tornado." It's freeing to see the lowly tumbleweed become airborne and get to taste the skies for a moment.

Here's a hailstorm decimating a paddy field. It must be pretty unnerving to have to sit there with what sounds like a dude with a hammer on your roof trying to get in.

Owain Wyn Evans absolutely crushed it on those drums. That is one way to close out a weather forecast. Maybe he should do this every time now.

Apocalyptic Images From Newfoundland's Storm Of The Century

Just in case you missed it, Newfoundland was overrun by a snowstorm of epic proportions. Yes, we're talking 30 inches of snow on Friday, which was reported from St. John's International Airport. Residents have been left to quite literally dig themselves out from the storm. The Canadian Armed Forces even stepped up to help in the efforts to clear up all the snow, and help out residents in need. Outside of all that chaos, the storm definitely made for quite the array of hilarious and crazy images. Nature is a wild beast, man.
