A viral video shows a local 'Cava' restaurant serving their famous Saganaki dish, then boom! The restaurant sprinkler system comes on and ruins the whole presentation.

"When the sprinklers initially went off, we couldn't stop laughing. It was just so shocking, and we were having such a great time all night that we couldn't help but laugh," said James Hughes.

Hughes along with a group of colleagues entered the Cava Mezze restaurant in Baltimore hoping to enjoy a great dinner. They ordered 8 Saganaki dishes--4 of them seen in the video, causing the sprinklers to go off.

Luckily, they were the last people in the restaurant when the showers happened. 

"The staff treated us amazing all night, very attentive, and made for a memorable night, even without the sprinkler fire," said Hughes.

The video has now reached 50 million views in just a week.
