Video: Meteorologist encounters a 'pot sasquatch' during blizzard

The video is hilarious.

She was just trying to talk about the weather.

Meteorologist Jennifer Pagliei of WWLP-22 News was in Springfield, Massachusetts, Thursday to talk about the blizzard that was hitting the East Coast, when during her live update a "pot sasquatch" snuck into the background.

It takes Pagliei a bit to notice the person, who appeared to be dressed in a pot leaf-covered sasquatch costume, and you can hear her laugh a little bit when she finally encounters it. says the pot sasquatch looks like the same one as the mascot for Potco, which describes itself as "more than a garden supply store," noting it's a source for all "cannabinoid product."

Here's more video of the pot sasquatch roaming around in the snow:
