Cellphone video showing a chimpanzee at a Michigan zoo flinging feces in a woman's face has become an internet sensation.

The video, posted Sunday on Facebook by Erin Vargo, captured the incident at the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids.

"So Jake and I thought we were going to have an average day at the zoo … turns out it would be the day of the funniest thing I've ever seen in my entire life," Vargo wrote on Facebook. "I'm seriously dying of laughter. And I can't believe I got it on video."

It shows the chimpanzee becoming agitated by onlookers. Moments later, the chimpanzee hurls a fresh bowel movement toward the crowd, with a piece landing on a woman's nose.

"It got grandma," one person said in the video.
