A six-second clip of a couple making a cantaloupe ’can’t elope’ joke belatedly went viral after a scraped version was shared to <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBVzdaW43nG3g2hbKW-LIfA" target="_blank">YouTube</a> on January 24.

The clip took off overnight (with help from <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/5pxqi8/trying_to_elope/" target="_blank">Reddit</a>) and had racked up a massive 614,314 views at the time of writing. The video had previously gone viral when it was <a href="https://vine.co/v/OvEWM933Ia2" target="_blank">originally shared</a> to Vine by <a href="https://www.instagram.com/mrtsnake/" target="_blank">Jacob Carr</a> on December 5, 2014 but has once again taken the internet by storm.

The clip shows Carr walking into his wife’s study, stating “our parents will never let us marry.” He then says “I want to elope but alas…” and holds up a cantaloupe. Luckily, his wife <a href="https://www.instagram.com/kaltastic/" target="_blank">Kalli</a> picked up on the joke right away and offers the ’can’t elope’ pun flawlessly.

    This pun was used years ago by Screech and Mister Belding on Saved by the Bell. Mr Belding: "Screech you can't elope! Screech: I'm no cantaloupe you melon head!"
