- A hilarious video has surfaced online showing a man attempting to catch a snake
- Philip is reportedly a "snake remover" who has a fear of - get this - snakes!
- The video has gone viral and it left South Africans laughing out loud
It's good to laugh a bit during a time when fear and panic are crippling countries around the world.
On Thursday, a social media user, @zeeontv, took to Twitter to share a hilarious clip of a man named Philip.
Philip and a colleague were filmed attempting to catch a snake. He eventually got hold of the serpent but it soon became clear Philip is not really a fan of snakes.
He appeared to try and run away from the snake that was caught in his tong. As Philip ran, the poor snake dragged behind him until he finally got loose and attempted to slither away.
Luckily, Philip's co-worker was there to save the day and he ended up securing the snake.
"This is Philip, the snake remover who is scared of snakes," the video was captioned.
The video gathered 13 200 views in just a day and it had South Africans laughing out loud.
Lesley Thabang, who goes by the Twitter handle @Kapone36maffiaz, commented:
"Phillip is there for the money not for the snake business."
Briefly.co.za previously reported on another snake-catching incident, however, this one was handled by a professional who loves snakes.
Nick Evans was called out to remove a snake from a house in the outer west area of Durban. When Evans arrived at the township home, he was met by a crowd and an anxious black mamba.
Taking to Facebook, the snake catcher detailed the experience and shared photos of the venomous serpent.
