The ‘snow monster’ speaks: Fired Lowell plow driver apologizes for controversial video

Donning a T-shirt that boasts, “F— you! I have enough friends,” a Lowell plow driver who was fired for posting a video of himself taking pleasure in pummeling parked cars with snow posted yet another video – except this time he’s sorry.

Mark Hussey, who also goes by Dogg and Blackdoggxxx, shot the video through his windshield while he was driving his plow up in the Lowell area during Nemo on the weekend of Feb. 8.  He bragged to local news outlets that he wasn’t worried about being fired, considering that he has been plowing city streets for 30 years.

But he had no such luck – he was canned Friday. So over the weekend he posted a new video, in which he calls himself an “idiot.”

“Am I an idiot? Yes. I’ll be the first one to admit that. Should I have been taking a video? No… No cars or personal property was hurt, making this video or any time during the storm. The only things that were hurt were people’s feelings and maybe some sore backs from having to shovel out. But that’s what happens in a blizzard.”

He goes on to say he should have “kept his mouth shut.”

In the original clip, when he’s not plowing in freshly shoveled driveways, Hussey seems to takes pleasure in burying cars parked on the side of the street, saying “Watch this one… now you see it , oh! That’s snow going up over it… over the roof of the car!… Ha haaaaa! You want to find your car? You come see me, I’ll let you know where it is. Maybe. Ha ha ha ha ha!”
