Meet the Kid Who Got Kneed by Jim Cantore

This is Colin Marcelli, a College of Charleston student and YouTube star. Marcelli, you’ll recall (watch here), was kneed in the stomach — not the groin as it would appear — when he burst into Jim Cantore‘s Weather Channel live shot Tuesday evening. Nearly two million views later, it’s not quite.

“He got me good,” Marcelli told Charleston CBS affiliate WCSC. “I figured it would be one of those things that I was on the Weather Channel for a minute, maybe laugh about it, see the video on YouTube and then it would be over.”

Did it hurt? “Yeah a little bit.” Would he do it again? “100%” yes. “It’s my 15 minutes of fame, you don’t get this very often.”
