Patrick Ellis, meteorologist for Jackson, Mississippi, was just trying to get through the evening news when a pint-sized surprise guest ran onto the set and promptly wreaked hilarious havoc.

Afterwards, Ellis took to social media to share his reaction and experience.

We hope there is. Houston, you've started a movement.
