Meet the man who went viral clearing a hornets’ nest on Black Friday

Not all heroes wear capes — some wear commercial-grade beekeeping suits. When Jude Verret was called to clear out a hornets’ nest in Patterson, La., on Friday, Nov. 24, he could hardly believe his eyes. The professional exterminator was able to clear the infestation in about 45 minutes and posted GoPro footage of his exploits shortly after. Within hours, the video had spread, racking up millions of views across social media platforms. The craziest part? He didn’t get stung once.
