WATCH: Package filled with 3,000 bees breaks open in truck, driver remains unbelievably calm
We should've known he was the coolest man alive when we heard what his name was.
A beekeeper was forced to drive over 40 miles with over 3,000 bees loose within the cab of his truck.
As reported by ABC News, Wallace Leatherwood - Coolest. Name. EVER. - calmly made the journey home when a container came loose and released the mini-stinging demons.
However, Leatherwood claims he wasn't stung once during the entire drive.
"Houston, we have a problem!" A beekeeper takes a dangerous drive home when some 3,000 bees broke free from their containers in his truck, swarming all over the cab.
He was reportedly not stung the whole ride home. https://t.co/cOYbfatXYW pic.twitter.com/DNHOBAdNGQ

Speaking to local news outlet WREG, Leatherwood said:
"When I came [back to the truck], [one of the boxes] was black with bees, and there were bees everywhere. I thought, well, I don't know what to do."
"It is dangerous. I know what you're going to say. 'Oh, you need to have an EpiPen and you should have a bee suit.' Well, I don't use a bee suit 99 percent of the time, so I'm just cool with them."
"I didn't want to lose my bees. They were $165 [per box]. I thought, well, I'm gonna stop in where my son works at Ken Wilson Ford. They're a bunch of scaredy-cats."
Which is where this second video comes from:
"This fool's got bees in his damn truck turned loose!" Video shows a beekeeper with his windows rolled up, and thousands of bees that got loose from their containers swarming the cab.
Miraculously, the keeper didn't get stung on the ride home! https://t.co/lDrjHvOpp5 pic.twitter.com/csmg4bknW1

I think it is fair to say that we all have a new life goal, and that is to be even one-tenth as cool as Wallace Leatherwood.
