The Waterford man famous for his prank notices has gone global overnight

The world loves it.

LAST YEAR, A Waterford man who goes by the name of Sir Michael on Twitter went viral with his hilarious prank notices around the city.

Overnight, it hit the front page of Reddit and Imgur, garnering over a million views in just eight hours

Keep up the good work, Michael.
