In the clip, Joseph can be seen wearing a green T-shirt, brown shorts and a bandana frantically waving a broom.
The rat vigorously jumps around at its feet before darting to the other side of the bowl.
Joseph chases the rodent while it screams, while Zay urges his friend to take it easy.
But just seconds later, the rat makes an unexpected turn and runs straight for Joseph before getting tangled under his feet.
The vacuum cleaner is sent to the ground in a panic, but quickly gets up again.
He kicks the animal to the side before it makes a second attack, causing him to lose balance and stumble again.
The beast rushes towards the grown man, who tries to clean up the area with remarkable success, while the man is sent to the ground.
Joseph chases the rodent while it screams while Zay urges him to take it easy, but seconds later the rat makes an unexpected turn and runs straight towards him.
Zay, from behind the camera, says, “I told you you don’t want to come in there with that thing, Joseph.”
The video is then cut short, but Zay and Joseph said afterwards that they eventually dislocated the rat using an abandoned BMX as a makeshift ladder to climb on.
Zay added: “We just worked together one morning and collected rubbish from the skate park.
‘When we came across that rat stuck in the skate bomb.
“He chased me away first, then Joseph came in there for whatever reason.”
