Enjoy living under Flesident Pitbull in the 'If Florida was a country' parody

Posted By on Thu, Apr 25, 2019 at 5:41 PM

Orlando comedian Rauce Padgett accurately predicts what would happen in the hilarious event of a #FLEXIT in his new parody sketch "If Florida was a country," and yes, it involves weaponized manatees.

The local actor behind hilarious sketches like "If Orlando was a movie," and "Why the I4 to 408 sucks" sees a future where U.S. Sen. Marco declares Florida a nation with an early-morning tweet sans Bible verse, and Flesident Pitbull makes us all pledge "dale."

Aside from Padgett playing an intrepid young reporter named Fort Myers, the news sketch features Joel Warren as anchor Sebastian Inlet, Sabrina Ambra as Florida Woman, "Poking the Bear" podcast host Big Tim Murphy as Florida Man and Xelda as Florida Dog.

Long live #FLEXIT!
