“NOTHING GETS IN THE ROAD OF A MAN & HIS BEER IN KAL.”
A video of a man enjoying a beer outside a Kalgoorlie pub during a storm that uprooted trees and damaged homes has gone viral, with social media users admitting they are mesmerized by his “fair dinkum” Aussie spirit.
The video, posted to TikTok by user vzmith, shows a man sitting outside The Rec Hotel in Boulder with a pint of beer appearing unphased as extreme winds batter the front of the premises.
Debris is seen flying through the air, chairs topple over and another man is seen trying to shield himself from the wind.
But even as a tree branch falls onto a parked car, the brave man, equipped in yellow high-vis, braces for a sip of beer during the weather chaos.
