Hero hitchhiker’s epic ‘smash’ interview: The remix

|

If you haven’t heard of Kai the homeless hitchhiker, here’s his story in brief:

In Fresno, Calif., on Friday, a 300-pound man claiming he was Jesus went on a rampage with his car, hitting a utility worker. Good samaritans tried to help, and the assailant wrapped one in a bear hug. Kai, the homeless hitchhiker, came up behind the assailant and hit him with a hatchet. Or, as he told a local TV station in a now-famous interview, he “smash, smash, smaaaash(ed)” the man.

Here’s the news story:

And it’s the Internet, so of course there’s an autotuned remix of the interview. It isn’t bad (though it is filled with NSFW language):

Stephen Colbert’s hilarious take is below. “For the first time in human history, people are saying ‘boy, we sure are lucky that homeless hitchhiker was carrying a hatchet.’”

There’s an indiegogo campaign to get Kai a new surfboard and wetsuit so he can get to Mavericks, as he requested in his interview. Smash it!
