It’s not often the entire panel of The Project agrees on something but tonight they were united.
“It’s the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life,” Peter Helliar declared moments after showing a viral video which reduced his colleagues to tears of laughter.
When the dust settled, Waleed Aly was speechless, Carrie Bickmore had buried her head in her hands, and Steve Price’s brow was furrowed in disbelief.
“That’s not true,” Bickmore said.
“You’re making that up,” Price added.
But, Hellier assured them, he was not making it up.
The video, which has been viewed more than 106,000 times since being posted on YouTube two days ago, shows a monkey in a zoo flinging its poo at an elderly woman.
Obviously, it’s a viral sensation.
This is what it did to four seasoned media presenters:
The panel loses it as Nan has an unfortunate encounter with a monkey… ????????

Helliar compared Nan’s new nose to Witchy Poo, and everyone — aside from the show’s producers at Channel 10, perhaps — agreed, they had to watch it again.
Sure enough, like a never-ending ripple of giggles through a year 9 English class, round two had them all doubled over the desk.
The (monkey) magic of television, amirite?
