A bigoted white guy getting nailed by a can of iced tea could be the last great viral music video of 2020.

As reported by Metal Injection, some white dude at a convenience store was a little too loose with the N-word around a Black guy. It all ended with the white guy getting nailed in the head by a can of iced tea. This has become known as the Twisted Tea Incident. You can see the original video here. (The guy wielding the tea was interviewed here.)

In this video, the sound of the can hitting the guy’s skull was sampled and turned into a snare drum sound. It’s killer, really.

There’s also this NIN remix. Cool.
