Talk about painting the town red.

People on social media are going wild after a river of red wine flooded a town in Portugal.

According to USA Today, per local news outlets, on Sunday, a small coastal town in Portugal, São Lourenço do Bairro, was flooded by 600,000 gallons of red wine after two tanks from a local distillery burst.

As shown in a video that has been circulating on social media, red wine flowed down a steep hill in the streets of the small town.

Fortunately, no one was injured, but it caused material damage. Levira Distillery, which caused the incident, took “full responsibility” for the flood, and said it could cover the cost of damages. In addition, the Anadia Fire Department was able to block the deluge, and divert the wine from reaching the river.

The video of the incident went viral online, with many people taking to X (formerly Twitter) to share their thoughts. And it’s safe to say the majority had a great sense of humor about the whole thing, as many social media users posted hilarious tweets and memes to express their amusement over the flood, including their desire to get their happy hour on.

“I’d set up a nice little table right here with some cheese, crackers and a big wine glass,” a user wrote.

Meanwhile, several people brought up Doja Cat’s hit single, “Paint the Town Red,” with one person joking, “the paint the town red promo is getting insane.”

Spotify also chimed in, writing, “get us a straw.”

In another funny post, a user jokingly brought up a fake scenario of how the surrounding wildlife reacted to the red wine flood.

The person wrote, “Local wildlife experts were surprised to see gatherings of foxes, rabbits, moles and other creatures in that field, stumbling around together saying ‘i love you bro, you know that right, i’m sorry for chasing you, i just want you to know, my bad.'”
