Watch this Gainesville Wendy's get severely punished with lightning

This might be a cue for everyone to lay off the Frostys and old-fashioned square hamburger patties, at least for a while. 

Last Sunday, July 5, Gainesville resident Hollin Hoffman was shooting a Snapchat of the rain when nature decided to flex its mighty power on this poor Wendy's franchise.  

Hollin wrote on his YouTube page, "Well, it's a little rainiy here in Florida and was taking a snapchat to share the rain with friends. Then...KABLOOMMKRAAH."  

If you're one of many who absolutely hate vertical videos, just know that Hollin has already apologized for it.
