A video of a tree that was struck by lightning is going viral as Twitter users seem to find it relatable.
The video was posted by Twitter user @sofain and shows a tree that was struck by lightning burning on the inside and appearing normal on the outside.
It took less than one day for Twitter to start meme-ing the hell out of the video, and the memes illustrate that we’re all pretty similar.
It seems like suppressing emotions is pretty common, at least among Twitter users.
“When my friends ask how i’m doing and i tell them ‘i’m fine,'” Twitter user @gnawdy wrote, along with the video. Twitter user @laibanwer equated the tree to how it feels “on the inside” when you see your crush talking to other girls.
“Me on the inside when i get jealous,” another wrote.

We all also seem to make poor nutritional choices, especially when it comes to Hot Cheetos. “My empty stomach after eating a bag of hot cheetos,” Twitter user

Another made an astute political observation. “A live look at the White House,” Twitter user @BenjaminEPark wrote.

And, of course, the fiery inside of the tree was equated to period cramps.

This video will probably continue making the rounds as users share more relatable content about suppressed emotions and spicy foods.
