A New York City infant redefined “baby shower” after hilariously taking a whizz while getting baptized last month. The viral video leak has amassed over 13,000 views on Instagram since it was posted on Aug. 28.
“Baby Jonathan literally p—ed on the priest,” said his proud dad Demetri Lymberatos, 35, who was filming his 7-month-old son’s baptism at a Greek church when the “livestreaming” moment occurred.
The Queens resident’s viral clip starts off innocently enough with a church official reciting scripture while holding the tyke up to the holy water. Then, all of a sudden, baby Jonathan begins to urinate — with the fountain of pee nearly hitting the priest — which causes Demetri, his wife Melina and others in attendance to burst into laughter.
“Everyone laughed because the scene was surreal — like a mini exorcist episode,” Demetri, who owns a pharmacy, told Jam Press of the micturate-filled moment. “I had to stay still and couldn’t even do anything because in my palm we had the holy oil and water.”
Suffice it to say, the uproarious footage had social media peeing themselves, with many joking that baby Jonathan had “baptized” the priest.
“Priest: ‘Who’s baptising who, here?’” wrote one Instagram comedian, while another quipped, “You sprinkle me, I’m gonna sprinkle you.”
Another commenter wrote: “Baby was just baptising back.”
Other gawkers recounted similar instances of their baby making holy water during their christening.
Said one, “My daughter did that at her baptism! Hahaha it didn’t spray obvs but yep, she peed all over my SIL. Gotta love the orthodox baptisms.”
