Alexis Ohanian thanks dead, bloody rabbit for knowing he was in love with Serena Williams

The Reddit co-founder related when he knew he was in love.

"We ended up wandering Paris together, and the moment I knew [we had a connection was when] we found this little zoo, and I saw it out of the corner of my eye and I said we're going to walk through the zoo," Ohanian told Colbert. "There was this big cat, like a leopard, a majestic creature, and then it was feeding time. They threw out a bunny."

Colbert interjected to make sure the rabbit was already dead at the time.

"It was a dead bunny, but it was a show," Ohanian said. "And this leopard just went in and blood is going everywhere. She's very romantic and she's standing in front of me and I can tell she's very unsettled by it. I said, 'It's cool, we're going to keep going.' But in that moment, I said, there's a connection. And in that moment, thanks to that poor rabbit, I found love, in spite of everything else."

For the record, the couple apparently have a connection to miniature mammals when it comes to their love. Williams and Ohanian only ended up meeting because they stayed in the same hotel in Rome by coincidence.

Ohanian took a seat outside on the hotel patio when Williams' assistant tried to shoo him away by warning him a rat was nearby.

"I told him thank you, but I'm from Brooklyn, I see rats all the time."

It was only later he realized her assistant was trying to scare him off.
