A squirrel scared the daylights out of a man and his sheer terror and high-pitched shrieking are a hilarious combo captured in a TikTok video.
The video shows a man seated at his computer, focused on a work call when he is startled by the sound of an intruder.
Initially, the man grabbed a baseball bat, but he was far too terrified to square off against the squirrel.
His reaction was hilarious, and the situation escalated quickly.
The closer the squirrel got to the man, the louder he shrieked. He seemed to be absolutely terrified as he swung at the air with the baseball bat and screeched in fear at the top of his lungs. In the case of man vs. squirrel, this man didn’t land a single hit.
The squirrel ran from one side of the room to the other, while the man continued to scream in a high-pitched voice. The man yelled “go away, go away” and was visibly shaken as defended himself against the tiny little squirrel.
At one point the furry little creature got too close to the terrified man and it was more than he could take. He continued screaming in sheer panic as he climbed on top of the desk screaming, “go away” repeatedly, and a lot of high-pitched screeching that made it sound like he was being brutally attacked.
This guy’s business call definitely didn’t go as planned and based on the video footage and the relentless screaming, it could be quite some time before his colleagues can look at him without laughing.
