Try To Keep It Together While Watching This Irish Dad Catch A Bat In His Kitchen

You never know when some random person’s high jinks on Facebook will end up going viral. Remember Chewbacca Mom? Of course you do. Turns out the internet is filled with random strangers who are just funny and esoteric enough to become viral hits.

Enter this Irish family, who’s slapstick adventure trying to catch a bat in their kitchen turned into, quite possibly, one of the funniest Facebook videos ever.

SO MUCH to love here.

First of all: the accented commentary. “He’s makin a mockery of ya!” Second of all: the mom hiding in another room. Third: the dog that gets so freaked out by the whole affair he just starts peeing in the corner. The frantic mess of this whole situation is simply amazing.

“So a Bat flew into our house last night…. safe to say it was dealt with in a calm and mannerly fashion,” wrote Tadhg Fleming — the bloke who took the video.

Needless to say, the internet has been falling in love with Bat Dad, and the greatest family comedy of 2017.

Oh Bat Dad, you instant classic, you.
