Viral WATCH: Weatherman Turns Swift Lyrics into Brilliant Rainy Day Forecast
Mother Nature's gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, but Mike the weatherman's just gonna shake it off.
FOX 5 Meterologist Mike Thomas gave “Swifties” a special, lyrical weather forecast ahead of Taylor Swift’s Washington, D.C. concert on Monday.
Thomas turned a rainy day weather forecast into a tribute to Swift’s 1989 tour.
He managed to incorporate several of Swift’s chart-topping hits in less than two minutes, referencing “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Out of the Woods,” “22,” “I Knew You Were Trouble,” “Mean,” and “Fearless.”
“This rain keeps cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving… and should continue to fade away from the area over the next few hours. The question then becomes, ‘Hey, are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods? Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear?’ Well, I can’t promise you that, but I know what you’re asking now: Hey Mike, why you gotta be so mean?” Thomas said.
He pledged, “I’ll let you know if it’s gonna rain forever or if the concert’s gonna go down in flames.”
He also told viewers that “it’ll be a great night to dress up like hipsters and make fun of our exes.”
Thomas also had some advice in the event that it rained during the concert: Just shake, shake, shake all that rain off, and go right back to dancing like you’re 22.
Swift herself showed appreciation for the musical meteorologist, writing on Twitter, “Never change, Mike the weather man.”
