Bindi Irwin uploaded a video to Instagram that would make anyone scream, “Crikey!” (Editor’s note: Nobody was happy I made this joke.)
But while doing her laundry in the rural outback of Queensland, Australia,, she made a very disturbing discovery.
“This was a first!” she wrote in the video’s caption.
After pulling clothes off the clothing line, Irwin realized that an enormous family of moths had moved into a pair of shorts.
“Found a bunch of friends had moved into our laundry while it was hanging on the line,” she continued in the caption. “Has this ever happened to you?”
It most definitely has not. Irwin, however, didn’t seem fazed while filming the reveal, which has drawn more than 1.2 million views.
“This is low key like a horror movie to me,” someone commented.
“I would take the L. Those pants are theirs now. Then I would leave and never return,” another person added.
Queensland has seen an uptick in moths recently because of a very specific weather pattern: Australia was experiencing a series of droughts followed by a period of lots of rain. The resulting humidity has attracted moths and butterflies.
Moths are drawn to dark and warm spaces and do gravitate toward unwashed clothing that may have traces of body oils or food residue, which is why so many of them flocked to Irwin’s clothesline.
Regardless of the reason why Irwin’s shorts were infested with moths, people were very grossed out.
“This is actually my worst nightmare,” one commenter wrote.
