A video of car crash witness Courtney Barnes giving an interview to Mississippi TV station WLBT has gone viral. Watch and you'll quickly see why: Barnes -- sporting a long, green ponytail and green nails -- describes the police car crash in Jackson in vivid, animated detail. The Washington Post's Erik Wemple called it the "interview of the year."

"The police officer was merging towards the front and the car gunned a little right and it was a full twist about and the police car just twist around like a tornado, girl," Barnes says in the video. "And the Lord just shook it up and the man just got injured."
