A teen had his trip to see Spider-Man: No Way Home rudely interrupted by a rogue hamster who appeared in the cinema and bit him - hopefully it wasn’t a radioactive hamster. You can see how it played out here:
The teen was about ten minutes into the movie at an Alabama movie theatre when one of his pals spotted what he initially thought was a rat roaming around.
While the pals lifted their legs up to avoid the rodent, the teen forgot to grab his popcorn bucket, which he’d left on the floor beside his seat - can you see where this is going?
As he reached down to grab his snack, he soon realised the bucket wasn’t only filled with popcorn after Brian had jumped in.
And Brian was not keen on seeing the cinemagoer, sinking his teeth into his hand.
The teen explained: "I felt it on my hand.
"And it bit me. So I flipped my bucket over and caught it. I thought it would be the right thing to do. I don't know why."
In the end, the teen found a staff member to show him Brian and was refunded for his ticket and the popcorn - but Brian continued to bite the poor guy.
He added: "One of the employees was like, 'What do you want me to do about it?' I said: 'I want you to take the hamster'."
It is still unclear if they did take the hamster or if it was left to the Spider-Man fan to sort out the situation.
The teen’s mum Dana says the run in with Brian ruined the cinema trip for her son, who spent a whopping eight hours watching Spider-Man movies the day before so he was up to speed.
She said: "He had never seen a Spider-Man movie. He texted me while it was happening, and I thought, 'You've got to be kidding me'. He doesn’t make stuff up, so I knew it was real. It's just the strangest thing I've ever heard."
After doing a bit of social media research, the teen and his mum discovered Brian had been on the loose in the cinema for five days - no wonder he fancied chowing down on a bit of popcorn.
But all’s well that ends well, and the cute little hamster is now rehomed.
Dana shared an update on social media to reveal he was in a safe new home before jokingly adding: "I will keep the new parent anonymous to try to avoid any nasty custody battles. Clearly the first parent is unfit."
