Man struck by lightning caught on tape (with video)

The headline:  Man struck by lightning caught-on-tape?

The link:  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504784_162-20058682-10391705.html?tag=cbsnewsMainColumnArea

The summary:  Video has surfaced of a man supposedly being hit by lightning at fairly close range.

The reaction:  I don’t know if I’m buying this one.

First of all, who video records a random guy crossing the street?

Second, look at the guy and his walk.  He just looks like he’s a plant.

Third, within about 20 seconds this guy pops right back up.  He looks to at least reasonably have his wits about him.  And he has nary a scratch on him.  No smoking hair or shoes or anything indicating an injury of any kind.

Judge for yourself but I don’t think it’s real.
