Samsung was shooting a commercial in Australia when some of its stars stormed off set. "Fox & Friends" has the wild video.
'Two buffalo escaped from a commercial set and wandered around a nearby neighborhood before they were rounded up by handlers.'
Yes, those are water buffalo charging through the streets of Newtown.
'They galloped down a main road,' and 'firefighters had to use ladders and other gear to corral them into a makeshift pen. Handlers from the film set took them back to work, though reluctantly.'
Interesting sight in a Newtown front yard. They look at home, no? Fireys and wranglers trying to get them home. pic.twitter.com/lvJTXbS1D7

But people on Twitter definitely got a kick out of it.
Special forecast for Newtown: Showery with a chance of Water Buffalo.

Fortunately, the only things hurt in the buffalos' escape were the azaleas in that garden.
Water buffalo do live in Australia, but ... we can't say it's very common to see them dashing around in traffic.
