The video opened with the studio journalist Giorgos Papadakis, who introduced the reporter at the flood site. Lazos replied, “Good morning, we have an issue,” and we can all see what the issue was.
“Giorgos, can you hear me? We have a pig here that has been chasing us since this morning. Folks, sorry, I can’t stand (still) because it’s biting me,” Lazos said as the journalists back at the studio could not control their laughter.
Papadakis even joked about how the pig wanted to become famous by appearing in front of the camera. “This is about (wanting) that one moment of fame. I have seen male and female pigs who look for a moment of fame,” he said.
This hilarious video garnered over 137,500 views and left netizens amused, as they flooded the comments section with funny replies. “Not pestered, loved,” wrote one user, while another said, “He’s hogging the limelight!”
