A man in Norway decided to film a thunderstorm outside his home. It seemed like a fun idea and a great way to capture some awesome lightning strikes. If that's not a shoo-in way to make a viral video, I don't know what is!

But while the man was filming, he received a nasty surprise. Instead of filming faraway lightning, a strike hits his deck just a few feet away from where he's standing. After filming his near-death experience, he shows the aftermath of the damage done by the lightning.

On the bright side, he's now got a much better viral better. On the negative, he nearly died.

He'll probably film his next thunderstorm from inside the house.
