THE BIZARRE moment a gorilla chased after astronaut Tim Peake on the ISS has remerged in all its hilarity.
Filmmaker Todd Spence reminded us of the amusing moment after posting a clip on Twitter which was liked more than 163,000 times.
In it, Peake can be seen desperately floating away from the hairy primate.
For those who missed it – or need their memories jogged – all was not as it seemed, thankfully for the safety of crew.
It was actually an epic prank, in a rare moment away from the usual serious work aboard the space station.
And it was all down to astronaut Scott Kelly.
Back in 2016, the American engineer managed to get a gorilla costume onboard the space station.
The suit was sent into space on a resupply mission.

He dressed up and hid in a soft-side storage container that fellow crewmate Tim Peake was busy opening.
Shortly after, the first Brit aboard the space station was seen dashing away in fear, to Scott's amusement.
Scott – whose twin brother Mark was also an astronaut – did the prank to celebrate his year in space mission.
He actually spent a total of 340 days in space, the equivalent to 5,000 orbits around Earth.
At the time, he tweeted: "Needed a little humor to lighten up a #YearInSpace.
"Go big, or go home. I think I'll do both. #SpaceApe"
