This is the funniest thing you’ll see today!
Footage of an Irishman’s attempt to get a bat out of his kitchen has gone viral with more than 1,9 million views on Facebook as of this moment.
The bat flew into the kitchen of Derry Fleming’s house in rural County Kerry on Monday night and has become the latest internet sensation with memes already spreading like wild fire in honor of this funny clip.
“Catch him, Derry!” has become the main point of hilarity in the video posted by Derry’s son Tadhg Fleming, a filmmaker from Ireland.
He told the BBC that his mother was doing some ironing and she had all the clothes on the table. She went outside the back and the minute she opened the back door, the bat flew in.
His dad, Derry initially tried to save the day by grabbing a towel, but after some failed attempts, he went for a bigger towel.
“It was just pure chaos,” says Tadhg.
His mother can be seen looking looking through the window of a door to the kitchen at one point…
