He gave this buried treasure the heave-ho.
A man’s dream of finding hidden riches in his backyard quickly evaporated — and left him gagging in a now-viral video — when a box he dug up turned out to be a septic tank. A clip of the fecal Rickroll currently boasts 5 million views on TikTok.
“I was doing some gardening in my backyard today, and I uncovered some sort of crazy, secret concrete box in the ground,” intones user @tonyhuismanlp in the clip, which shows him exhuming the mysterious object with a shovel, like it’s the Ark of the Covenant unearthed by Indiana Jones in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
“I found a handle after digging for a while, then after digging for a bit more I uncovered a second handle,” Tony Huisman says. “I kept going until I got it cleaned to the point where I could start to attempt to lift it up.”
Then comes the revolting reveal.
“You’ll never believe what I found … my septic tank,” the wannabe archaeologist says, as the video shows him holding a shirt over his mouth while coughing violently as if he’s about to hurl.
The poo-leontologist’s discovery stirred up a s–tstorm on TikTok.
“Me watching this: ‘Don’t open that. Don’t open that. No no don’t open that,'” wrote one horrified commenter of the disgusting discovery.
“Umm I think it wasn’t treasure,” said another.
One TikTok comedian quipped, “I finally found septiktok.”
Of course, as some discerning TikTok users observed, the video seemed a little too good to be true.
Indeed, Huisman reveals in a subsequent clip that he knew that the object was a crap coffin when he started digging.
“So, I actually did need to dig up the septic tank because it did need to be pumped,” he says. “I just thought I’d make a video out of it.”
The dung digger said he only discovered recently that he had a septic system, despite living at the property for six years.
