Soon stores were selling out of watermelons.

Dear #watermelonboy you have inspired me to go to my local green grocer to get me some @tensporttv

Not bad kid, not bad. 🍉 🍉 🍉 🍉 🍉 🍉

Here is the final effort from #watermelonboy @tensporttv @mcg @BBL

#watermelonboy, bringing people together since January 2, 2016.

Something about a young boy eating a watermelon bringing cricket fans and non-fans together gives me hope for 2016. #watermelonboy

PS: #watermelonboy strutted his stuff at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in front of a record Big Bash League crowd of 80,883 😍.

STARS WIN! What a night at the @MCG! Outstanding knock from Luke Wright to finish with 109* #BBL05

Update 08:45 AEDT, January 3: #watermelonboy, aka 10-year-old Mitchell Schebeci, appeared on The Today Show on Sunday morning, still eating. Basically, he did it for the LOLs.
