Everybody knows an Emmanuel. It could be a co-worker, a classmate, a friend, or a family member. In this case, Emmanuel is an emu who can’t help but stir up trouble and make himself the center of attention.

Emmanuel lives on Knuckle Bump Farms in South Florida.  According to its Instagram profile, Knuckle Bump is a small hobby farm dedicated to providing quality miniature cattle. But really, it’s all about Emmanuel.

Taylor Blake, who runs Knuckle Bump Farms, makes videos to educate the public about different types of cattle. Frustratingly for Taylor, Emmanuel the Emu often interrupts her shoots. But there’s a silver lining. Emmanuel’s now-viral antics have brought a lot of attention to Knuckle Bump Farms.

Check out a few of the hilarious clips below of Emmanuel making a nuisance of himself, much to Taylor’s increasing consternation. You know he’s really in trouble when Taylor calls him by his full name, Emmanuel Todd Lopez, and warns him not to choose violence. LOL!
