Man vents about Columbia heat on Facebook, video goes viral

Heat waves have been known to make people delirious, delusional and even deranged.

One man visiting the Capital City thought he was seeing things after experiencing extreme temperatures early this week.

E. Cornell Johnson sat in his car and recorded a video venting his frustration about the Columbia heat.

“Ain’t no birds flying,” Johnson noted. “Ain’t no people walking. I saw a couple of folks playing basketball. Threw the ball up and the basketball didn’t even want to come down.”

Since that video was posted on Sunday, it has been viewed over 151,000 times and shared on Facebook over 5,400 times.

If Columbia wasn’t “Famously Hot” before, it just might be after this video makes its rounds.
