“Smash! Smash! Smash! It was f*ckin’ gnarly man. It was the biggest rave I’ve ever ridden.”
In 2013, a five-minute interview with a man known only as ‘Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker’ shot to viral fame.
In the clip, Kai – a frizzy-haired skateboard kid wearing a bandana – described how he used a hatchet to save two pedestrians from an attacker.
Speaking to local Californian news station KMPH, Kai explained that he had hitched a ride with a man named Jett when he suddenly crashed into a pedestrian, pinning them against another vehicle.

When another woman arrived at the scene to try to help the pedestrian, Jett jumped out of the car and attacked her in a bear hug.
“He runs up and he grabs one of them, man. Like a guy that big can snap a woman’s neck like a pencil stick!” Kai told reporters.
“So I f*ckin’ ran up behind him with a hatchet.”
After pulling a hatchet out of his backpack, Kai repeatedly hit the attacker in the back of the head until he staggered away. Jett, who claimed to be Jesus Christ, was later arrested.
