I can’t stop laughing. At the end of last week, Twitter user Paul Haine resurfaced a six-year-old video that's suddenly gone viral. The video's of a man named Steve, a guy who’s just trying to fry some gnocchi. My man Steve’s outfitted like a Starbucks barista, green apron over his lily-white shirt. As the video progresses, he slowly dissolves into in a fit of laughter as gnocchi ricochets across the room, grazing every imaginable surface.

The video that’s currently floating around Twitter is a truncated version of the three-minute video, below, originally published by the WebstaurantStore. The longer version gives a bit more context to the video that's currently traveling across Twitter—Steve's trying to make buffalo gnocchi, which explains why he's armed with a 3-gallon tub of hot sauce. (Lucky us—there's a whole trove of Steve's odd decisions, compiled in a playlist entitled "Steve's Bad Ideas.") The first pop arrives at about the 1:30 mark.

“Never fry gnocchi,” he cries. “At least not the store-bought kind.” I’ll take your word for it, Steve.

Ever fry gnocchi and have it pop everywhere? Let us know in the comments.
