Level 57 Taco Wizard
Lane Pittman just can't stop going viral. Back in 2015, the Jacksonville, Florida resident turned up a July 4 celebration by playing the National Anthem with his electric guitar, causing such a big crowd to gather that local police arrested him. His story feels typical of the wacky headlines you often see out of the Sunshine State, so VICE followed him for the first installment of our new video series, WTFlorida.
The video of Pittman's arrest was his first viral moment, and it landed him gigs playing the Star Spangled Banner at stadiums across the country. In 2016 he splashed into public view again in a video headbanging in the winds of hurricane Matthew while holding an American flag.
