Road rage, thy name is Ronnie Pickering.
A British man named Ronnie Pickering has become a viral star nearly overnight for his tirade against a motorcyclist.
Let's say right up front that Ronnie Pickering has a right dirty mouth, and he wasn't afraid to use it against this moped-riding bloke. (We're pleased to report Pickering's tongue was the only weapon used in the confrontation, despite his bare-knuckle challenge.)
The video, posted to YouTube on Sunday, is racking up big numbers for Pickering's salty talk and in-your-face delivery. (The exchange begins at about the :50 mark.)
The trouble appeared to have started when the moped moved in front of Pickering's Citroen in Hull, England, impeding his progress.
En route to a diatribe that The Huffington Post UK called an "expletive-laden joy," he asks the motorcyclist, "Do you know who I am?"
We do now, Ronnie Pickering.
Pickering, a 54-year-old grandfather of five, later said he was sorry.
"I'd like to apologize for my outburst," he told the Hull Daily Mail. "He really got to me. I am not an aggressive guy. He was baiting me so I thought I would give him a few of my thoughts."
If we may be allowed to speak for an entertainment-hungry Internet, apology accepted, Ronnie Pickering!
