A gay couple in Chicago has gone viral for a humorous video they made last week in response to a thief who stole a Pride flag from their porch.

"We're so sorry a rainbow bruised your fragile ego," one of the couple intones while the other lies back on a patio couch and pretends to wipe tears from his eyes with a big Pride flag. He then proceeds to display an abundance of handheld Pride flags, and pulls an endless rainbow flag stream from his mouth. "You can take our flag but you can never take our Pride!"
