The new year has kicked off with a new meme courtesy of 10-year-old Mitchell Schebeci, who brought a watermelon to Melbourne’s Big Bash cricket derby and proceeded to eat it like a giant apple – seeds, skin and all.
A video of the event being posted on twitter led to instant fame and an appearance on The Today Show, during which Mitchell continued to eat.
Obviously he was ready for the Internet’s adoration. Check out the video below.
