In the stomach-cramping clip, uploaded Monday, Tony can be seen sifting through the mud in his backyard with a shovel.

“I was gardening in my backyard today and I discovered some kind of crazy concrete secret box in the ground,” he said.

‘I found a handle after digging for a while, and after digging a little more, I discovered a second handle. I kept going until I cleaned it to the point where I could try to lift it.

‘When I tried it, it was a bit tough, so then I brought in the big guns. And you will never believe what I found. ‘

The video has been viewed more than 7 million times on the social media platform.

In a follow-up video, Tony admitted that he was knew it was a waste-holding tank when he started digging, but that he hadn’t started looking for the box until after a plumber recently informed him of its existence.

Tony said, “We didn’t know we were on the septic system. I’ve lived here for six years, the landlord before me had lived here for two years, and the people before us had a garden bed above where the septic tank is.

So who knows how long it has been since it was cleaned – eight years or more?

And the content in there, it was like the consistency of Jell-O. But not Jell-O, you want to eat. ‘
