Last month, Mike Panero set up what seemed like an innocuous TikTok: He’s outside at night, his camera trained on him and the sky behind him. “I think I’m in a thunderstorm, I’m not sure,” he says.
He ventures into some vague hypotheses about rain and thunder, then starts a countdown from seven. When he hits one, there’s some perfectly timed lightning in the background, and Panero freaks out so hard he topples his camera. “Bro, I’m psychic.”
The video has more than 8 million views, and the comments are filled with people calling him Thor, or telling him he looks like Kelso (Ashton Kutcher’s character from That ’70s Show). People also pointed out the obvious: He called lightning thunder, which Panero attributed to dyslexia. Panero has also been very open about his ADHD, and how he gets through the more difficult moments.
The video picked up steam again this week after being posted to r/PublicFreakout, with the caption “Thunder boi.” But Panero posted another video that same August night, where he also mysteriously predicted lightning behind him.
Commenters again pushed the Kelso theory, citing Kutcher’s line from an episode of That ’70s Show where he tells Jackie (Mila Kunis) that he “can’t control the weather.” We reached out to Panero for comment.
