“Never work with children or animals” actor W.C. Fields famously said. He was referring to child and animal actors stealing a scene from actors. Now meet Emmanuel the emu, who is here to reinforce that long-held Hollywood adage.
Knuckle Bump Farms shared several TikTok videos that we think makes Emmanuel a star, although it does seem like his ambition is really to be a film director!

If you have trouble viewing the Twitter compilation version, take a look at the original TikTok videos below:
@knucklebumpfarms Not a day goes by that Emanuel doesn’t try my life #emu #emusoftiktok #farmlife ♬ original sound Knuckle Bump Farms
Knuckle Bump Farms jokingly captioned one of the now viral videos, “Another day, another Emmanuel don’t do it. It’s impossible to educate under these hostile work conditions.”
@knucklebumpfarms Another day, another Emmanuel don’t do it🤦🏼♀️its impossible to educate under these hostile work conditions #emu #emmanueltheemu #farmlife #choas ♬ original sound – Knuckle Bump Farms
But has Emmanuel actually ever done it? Well, yes, he has been given permission to go for it, which he does. With hilarious results, again.
@knucklebumpfarms Reply to @pdtheog is this what you wanted? Bc I have cow shit stuck in my phone speaker now😩 #emu #emmanuel #emusoftiktok #farmlife ♬ original sound Knuckle Bump Farms
But it should be noted their friendship is not always hilariously exasperating. Sometimes there’s time for early morning snuggles.

And shared messages to their fans!

(Emmanuel has a message for you at the end🤣) #emmanueltheemu #emu #thankyou ♬ original sound – Knuckle Bump Farms
We definitely think with Emmanuel’s newfound fame, that the farm should think about selling t-shirts with the meme-worthy catchphrase “Emmanuel don’t do it. We’re pretty sure they’d sell a bucket load. But we’re also pretty sure Emmanuel will stick his neck into that business too.
