First viral sensation of 2016: Boy eats whole watermelon

(WIAT) — The son of an Australian radio host has taken social media by storm after cameras caught him eating a watermelon like an apple, rind and all.

Mitch Schibeci was enjoying a cricket match while he attempted to take down the fruit.

The young viral star and his father have both taken the new fame in stride, with Mitch sharing photos from the various stages of his watermelon eating on his new @Watermelonboyau Twitter account.

His father has made jokes about how his son is now the “cult hero” of the family.
