Have you ever experienced a tight squeeze? We know how uncomfortable and frankly annoying these situations can be.

@micarlolm, however, did not allow his ‘tight squeeze’ moment to ruin his day.

Taking to TikTok, he shared a hilarious clip of his experience on a FlySafair flight at King Shaka International Airport in Durban.

In the video, @micarlolm and two of his 'larger-than-life' friends can be seen struggling to get comfortable in their seats with @micarlolm jovially expressing how cramped the conditions were.

He even compared the seating arrangement to being stuck in a taxi!

At one point he moved the camera view to show how close he was to his friend, exclaiming: “We don’t even need a belt”.

He had other passengers laughing their socks off as he spoke in various languages, expressing the how their ‘chubby’ bodies were squeezed together.

The clip was posted one day ago and has already gained over 250,000 views. Many commenters took time out to applaud @micarlolm for his lighthearted take on the incident.

Take a look at the hilarious clip here:
