Before people were walking off cliffs trying to catch Pokémon, this guy was busy catching a real life rabbit and documenting the whole thing on Snapchat. Simpler times.
Ruben Andrews shared the hilarious and touching story of how he found a rabbit at the side of the road six months ago. Little did he know, that night would change his life.
The 21-year-old security guard’s Snapchat story, which was recorded on his way home from work one night, has since been retweeted more than 60,000 times.

Ruben initially thought his new mate was a wild rabbit, but it’s likely that the rabbit used to be someone’s pet and had escaped or been abandoned.
But that’s not the end of the story.
Six months on from that fateful night, Ruben is still the proud owner of the rabbit, who he has named Yung Lenny.
Ruben told us:
Our relationship is good. He’s really a cool rabbit, he just sits and relaxes. He’s almost blind so he doesn’t do much, just rabbit stuff.

Nope, that’s not the end of the story either. It gets even better.
Not only have Ruben and Yung Lenny become online celebrities, they even have their own clothing line. Seriously.

They’ve quickly become the coolest double act on the internet, and they’ve got big plans for the future.

We hope to get on The Ellen Show or Tosh.0 and we will be definitely doing more modelling together.
Don’t you just love the Internet sometimes?
