A kid who appeared on TV alongside his family for a news feature has gone viral after he put his frog-like skills on display.

Film crews for “The Project” were visiting rural communities in Australia to see how recent rainfall was impacting the lives those who had been struggling during drought conditions.

As the two parents stand behind their children, the mother begins to explain about the rough conditions they’ve endured.

The clip that was originally posted on Reddit zooms in on the face of her son… a fly soon lands on the kids face and without even skipping a beat he sticks out his tongue and grabs the bug and swallows it.

He proceeds to smile and before you know it another fly lands on his face and he does it again!


A man in the video can be heard laughing at the clip as he says “he got two of them” before the camera cuts away.

Thousands of people were left confused by what they had just watched, as reported by LadBible, as one wrote: “Bear Grylls, the early days.”

Another questioned: “How is it that flies can dodge a fast moving hand but they can’t dodge a slow moving tongue?”

A third simply added: “A man’s gotta eat.”

What the heck!?
