World’s angriest neighbor has amazing reaction to friendly greeting

This video, just 14 seconds long, hints at a much longer period of turmoil in the suburb of Madison Heights, Mich.

YouTube user Paul Bastien uploaded the clip—nothing more than a quick shot as he drives past someone’s house. “Today we are going to experience the exorcist himself,” our narrator says.

He then slows down slightly to say “How are you, sir?” to a neighbor hanging out on his front porch. The earnestly polite question is returned with nothing but expletives and aggression, and we have way more questions than answers.

The aggressive retort summons up images of memories of 1976’s Network, in which broadcast personality Howard Beale is “mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore.” Stay angry, I guess?
