With event details listed as, "YO SO THIS GOOFY LOOKING WINDY HEADASS NAMED IRMA SAID THEY PULLING UP ON US, LETS SHOW IRMA THAT WE SHOOT FIRST", it's hard to imagine how people wouldn't want to sign up. You won't make it turn around & it will have very unsafe side effects, ' the tweet read.

With at least three people dead and millions without power, Hurricane Irma is slowly ripping through parts of the U.S. state of Florida with devastating effects.

But one Florida resident's joke response to the imminent arrival of Hurricane Irma may capture America's id as its finest.

He further said, "A combination of stress and boredom made me start the event. The response is a complete and total surprise to me", the 22-year-old told BBC Newsbeat. "It has become something a little out of my control", the Independent quoted him as saying.
