There’s nothing like a little follow up to remind people of that 15 minutes of fame you had recently.
It keeps you current, trending even. And this, this is brilliant.
Remember the unfazed lawnmower man? Well, he has returned.
Back in early June, Theunis Wessels (who now lives in Alberta, Canada) found international fame after his wife posted an image of him mowing his lawn with a tornado raging behind him – check it here.
Since then? Well, this is how TIME describes what followed:
[D]edicated landscaper Wessels was unfazed by inclement weather or impending disaster or the ominous twister just behind him. His unbothered approach launched a thousand “This Is Fine” memes, and cemented his status as certified legend.
Over the weekend, the “certified legend” struck again, but this time with a float at a local parade in his town of Three Hills.
In a nod to his internet-begotten fame, he included a faux twister art installation on a float and painted the phrase “I’m keeping an eye on it” on the vehicle. (That casual quote was delivered to newspaper outlets following his brush with meme stardom.)
He’s also wearing the same orange shirt and blue shorts as in his original photo.
This was what you would have seen if you visited Three Hills this weekend:
Oh, and here’s a shot from the back:
That’s one way to get your name out there. Simple, but effective. Two thumbs up, Wessels.
