These uninvited houseguests were real party animals

Helping themselves to shots of hard liquor, a freshly cooked brunch spread and several bags of chips, a pair of bold baboons broke into a woman’s rental home in Knysna, South Africa, and nearly destroyed her birthday breakfast celebration.  

“Baboons just came inside our house, ate our avocados we were making for breakfast and drank our Hennessy,” Twitter user Esethu Zoe Williams exclaimed in a now-viral video on Saturday. She then shared footage of the hairy intruders monkeying around in her AirBnB’s kitchen. 

“I’m traumatized,” Williams confessed in a subsequent tweet, which scared up more than 84,000 likes. The post featured a video of a primate hopping from counter to counter, popping open bags of chips while she and her screaming friends cowered in fear. 

In a separate clip, with over 291,000 views, one of the badass baboons is scene guzzling glasses of brandy that were left outside on the patio of the property as Williams and her pals watched from a window. 

“It finished an entire glass and almost left with the empty glass,” she tweeted. 

And Williams’ more than 4,000 Twitter followers, most of whom were sympathetic, found great humor in her monkey house of horrors. 

Life is hard everywhere. They needed that alcohol break,” commented one of her followers, amused by the baboon’s unabashed swig of Hennessy.

“Someone said these things are human beings but pretend as if they can’t speak just to avoid paying taxes. Drinking Hennessy?” joked another, adding a series of laughing emojis for emphasis. 

Others shared their own unexpected encounters with apes while on vacation. 

“A monkey came to our table on the patio and took our château gateaux cake in Zimbali, I havent healed,” one commentator revealed. 

In a statement to Storyful, Williams revealed that her jungle-dwelling trespassers strolled into her rented abode after she and her friends forgot to close the door behind them. 

“We had mistakenly left the door open while making breakfast when two baboons entered,” said Williams. “They ate eggs, avocado and bread before proceeding to pop the snacks.”

Luckily, she and her party managed to give the baboons the boot and resumed their birthday brunch festivities. 

“We eventually got them out by screaming and charging towards [them],” Williams added. “When they were outside, they drank the liquor that had been left there from the previous day.”

And once the monkeys fled, she and her friends enjoyed a scenic meal outdoors. 

“Restored,” she penned as the caption of a video-tweet, showcasing their seaside, monkey-free breakfast.
