VIDEO: Tiger Woods Hot Dog Incident Inspired By 'Drive'

First of all, you can finally watch the video of the incident unfolding in real-time. You don't see the man throwing the hot dog, but you do see it hitting the ground and splattering all over the place. Then you see Brandon Kelly (hot dog thrower extraordinaire) hit the ground knowing full well he's about to be punished for his misdeed.

But all of that pales in comparison with his reasoning for doing what he did. Find out why Kelly threw that hot dog (and watch the video of the whole incident) after the jump.


Kelly of Petaluma offered this reasoning to Julie Johnson of the Press Democrat.

The idea, he said, was formed after he watched a movie about a stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver.

"I threw the hot dog toward Tiger Woods because I was inspired by the movie ‘Drive,'" Kelly said. "As soon as the movie ended, I thought to myself, ‘I have to do something courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.'"

Well, I guess the government has no choice but to show Drive to all its citizens and test out whether it really was the movie that inspires people to do epically amazing things, like track down the world's most famous golfer and waste a perfectly good weiner on a slightly (only 'slightly'!) off-target throw. Keep the courage flowing Brandon.
