Who Is Ronnie Pickering?
Seven years ago, a video of Grandad Ronnie Pickering from Bransholme, Hull. He was getting angry on the road went viral on YouTube.
A friend of Ronnie’s told the Daily Mail that the 61-year-old used to box as an amateur and lived in a simple house. He worked as a taxi driver and was in the military.
On September 21, 2015, a GoPro camera caught Ronnie and a moped rider fighting on the road near the Bransholme Fire Station on Noddle Hill Way.
The two got into a heated argument, and the Mirror said that Ronnie was heard yelling at the moped rider.
The most famous line from the Hull grandad, which went viral, was when he asked. “Do you know who I am?” before responding: “I’m Ronnie Pickering.”
The original video was posted on YouTube, and since then, millions of people have watched it on other platforms, like TikTok and Twitter.
We all remember Ronnie Pickering but the guy on the bike has long been forgotten.
Happy Ronnie Pickering Day to you all.

What Ronnie Pickering Thinks About the Video?
Ronnie thought about the road rage and how the video changed his life five years after it happened.
“I can’t believe it was five years ago to be honest,” he told Hull Live back in 2020. “I had no idea it was being filmed and the first I knew was when a friend texted me and told me it was on YouTube.”
Then he continued “I think that along with the original YouTube upload and all the other follow-ups and memes, the video has probably had 100m views. It is a bit crazy to think how many people have seen it.
