“Don’t you ever say I just walked away. I will always want you” — this squirrel to this bird feeder, probably.
For those not in the bird feeding game, there is a type of motorized, weight-activated bird feeder called the Yankee Flipper, which spins interloping squirrels around in the circle until they lose their grip on its base. Sound wild? It is — but Yankee Flipper videos are all over YouTube.
But there’s never been a Yankee Flipper video quite like this one from YouTuber user Lindsey Jackson. It’s set to Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” and timed flawlessly.
Did anyone else tear up? Okay, that’s fine. Anyway, the clip (which was originally posted in late April) went viral after it was tweeted by @GabbyGeno earlier this week. So far, it’s gotten about 245,000 favorites, which is a lot of favorites for a human, let alone a squirrel.
It seems like the squirrel should get some birdseed as a prize, maybe? Just spitballing here.
