Man Does Masterful Walrus Impression During TV Interview, Becomes Instant Internet Smash

A honey-tongued Irishman has become a viral smash after performing an impression of a walrus during a TV interview.

Anthony Fitzgerald was being interviewed by RTÉ News after a walrus – said to have travelled all the way from the Arctic – was found on the shores of Valentia Island on the west coast of Ireland.

Local resident Fitzgerald then proceeded to do an impression of the walrus straight to camera. Check it out below:

As these things do, Fitzgerald’s animal antics soon went viral, with one wag even creating a mashup of Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer  but replacing the “ohhhh” in the chorus with Fitzgerald’s groan.

Social media fans also lapped up the performance.

One wrote: “This is the most Irish thing that has ever Irished. I’m completely in love. Oh dear Lord, please, please send us more of this RTE news about walruses. I just can’t. I cannot. I’m dying. I’m dead.”

Another added: “Oh he’s getting a fantastic reaction, especially in these times when there’s nothing else happening. He’s a celebrity here.”

However, the whole thing reminded B&T of one of the best animal impersonations ever done to camera and it was Aussie to boot.

Way back in 2010, Sydney resident Ray Graham found global fame after he was interviewed by A Current Affair about two noisy, aggressive dogs harassing the residents of Ray’s street in Marsfield.

Ray – who soon earned the nickname ‘Rabid Ray’ – delivered a marvellous impression of said dogs while his wife stood by unmoved.
