After heavy rain across the Chicago area caused flash flooding and transportation delays Friday, a local TV station’s camera — providing a helicopter’s view of the situation — came upon a sight that momentarily made newscasters forget all about their waterlogged town.

“Is that the Hulk there in the backyard?” one WGN-TV newscaster asked on air.

“I’m sorry,” she went on, “I’m just getting distracted by this video.”

As the crew eyeballed the legendary comic-book character in the middle of the yard, a man emerged from the house — presumably after he noticed the helicopter trained on his property — and stood by the Hulk statue…and posed:

Which cracked up the newscasters.

“That’s right baby! That’s how we roll,” said one newscaster. “That water will be gone soon.”

“Notice there’s no water in his backyard,” said another. “It’s too scared.”

“Safest house in town,” a third noted.
