As the Belfast Telegraph reports, Manchester University student Sean-Caio Dos Santos Corr from Derrylaughan made the clip for the craic after spotting traffic splashing barrel waves onto the pavement on a flooded street.
Waiting for another downpour, Corr and his friend Christian Berger pounced with surfboard, camera and Bermuda shorts at the ready – and the results caught the interest of online viewers across Europe.
"We didn't even intend to take a camera with us we just grabbed it on the way out of the house for a laugh," says Corr.
"And now it's quite funny that people are actually interested in seeing eejits on the side of the road getting splashed in the face by a puddle."
