Animal rights activists will not appreciate this and let us be the first to say we do not condone the practice, but this video of a screaming toad has been storming the internet.

The clip features the unfortunate amphibian being held aloft and emitting a surprisingly human-like scream.

Uploaded in 2009, poster ppparaone suggests the frog can be heard to shriek 'Weed Poop', (although we're not too sure about that).

Understandably upsetting for some, the clip has been picked up by Reddit, after someone worked out the toad's shriek could be manipulated to play a tune using a computer keypad.

Helpfully, users have been flagging up codes to play well-known hits. If you fancy a guilty giggle, have a go at these:

Smoke on the Water: 654 6534 654 56

Super Man Theme: 4 4744 2 4 7

The Imperial March 0 0 0 1 2 1 2, 3 3 3 4 2 1 2 1 2

Zelda's Lullaby: 657 657 65235

Ambulance sound: 5 &7 alternating

Song of Shadows: 8 785 7 8


NB Frogs and toads emit noises like this when they are distressed. We very much hope the little fella was placed back in the water after his performance.
