Emmanuel the emu continues to attack his owner’s smartphone camera
Viral sensation Emmanuel the Emu has set the internet on fire after a series of videos showed his penchant for attacking his master’s smartphone camera while he is recording.
Emmanuel, who lives at Knuckle Bump Farms in South Florida with owner Taylor Blake, has starred in a series of hilarious videos where he interrupts Blake as he looms in the picture and stabs the phone on the floor, much to Blake’s chagrin.
The videos consist of Blake speaking into the camera which is perched on a surface when Emmanuel appears and takes a dislike to the smartphone. Blake will say “Emmanuel, don’t do it”, and sometimes it works and Emmanuel stops his misbehavior. Other times, Blake’s phone goes in the mud.

Blake and Emmanuel have a comedic relationship, with Blake, 29, playing the role of a stressed mother while Emmanuel is the ever troublesome toddler.
Why Emmanuel doesn’t like the smartphone camera so much remains a mystery. However, he is not alone in disdaining recording devices, PetaPixel recently reported that Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West asked photographers to “stop” filming her holding up a sign while attending Paris Fashion Week with her famous mom.

Blake has been creating content since 2013 and enjoys educating his viewers about the animals on his farm, many of which are cows.

The cows on the farm can be seen wearing silly hats, playing with Blake and trying to eat his food. Several videos feature pigs, deer and even ducklings.
