Viral TikTok video shows Wisconsin man rollerblading away from pursuing police car
'I bet he can hover blade across bodies of water. No mortal will ever catch him. I hope he uses these powers for good,' one user commented.
A man from Wisconsin has gone viral after a short video of him roller-blading away from a chasing police car was posted on TikTok. The clip eventually found its way to Twitter where it is drawing tons of reactions too.
TikToker Breyley Stephenson was the first to upload the video on the platform and since then it has been viewed over 7.5 million times and garnered 1.1 million likes. Playing to the tune of the Warren Zeiders song “Ride the Lightning,” the short video has also gathered over 9,000 comments. The video in question simply shows a man blazing down a street in rollerblades, zooming past a couple of people who were filming him. Closely following him in what appeared to be in pursuit, is a police car with its sirens blaring. The incident apparently took place in Door County, Wisconsin, where it is against the law to skate on city roadways.
In an update in the comments, Stephenson wrote, “Update: they’re making tee shirts that say ‘let spidey blade’ to bring attention to the ordinance of in-line skating on roadways. And spidey said, ‘he couldn’t hear the cop because he was listening to Miley Cyrus.'”
'A True Outlaw,' 'Living Legend'
There were also a barrage of people trying to identify the skating man. “Dude, that’s my little cousin, no joke. I recognized him right away.” She later added, “My friend sent it to me and right away, I’m like, no, that’s Adam.”
“I’ve known this kid [for] some time now and I’ve never seen him without skates…guess they came in handy after all!” another viewer wrote. Even Warren Zeiders himself commented on the video, writing, “A True Outlaw." Soon other praises followed. “He moving like FROZONE,” wrote one viewer. “Did not think it could get more ridiculous but you proved me wrong,” a viewer responded. “LIVING LEGEND,” wrote another.
One of the people who uploaded the video on Twitter was former basketball player Rex Chapman, who has built quite a quirky reputation on Twitter for sharing weird videos. The video has received nearly 50,000 likes and has been viewed over a million times since being posted on Thursday, September 2. "Why can’t amazing shit like this happen in my neighborhood …he really on rollerblades, skating from the cops," one said, while another wrote, "Luckly, the cops didn't 'fear for their lives' otherwise he'd been shot skating away!" A third quipped, "He’s like a god gliding down there." The next remarked, "Legend in the making..?"
A commenter tweeted, "This is the smoothest thing I’ve ever seen. He’s almost floating, with the speed and grace of a wild gazelle. I bet he can hover blade across bodies of water. No mortal will ever catch him. I hope he uses these powers for good." One more said, "I’m obsessed with this guy’s cardio. I mean, he doesn’t LOOK like he’d have good cardio, but…" Another stated, "I'm actually more shocked people are still rollerblading." A person reacted with, "My first thought, Miss Piggy roller skating chase scene."
