Happy Friday, night owls.
Saw this on the Twitter timeline tonight and it's the best thing I've seen all week.
CHALLENGE: Try to watch that video all the way through with the volume all the way up, and with full focus on the squirrel, especially the little paws. I promise you will not be able to do it without at least cracking I smile. I head tears running down my face.
The music, the pole wiggling, the slow-mo at the end... Here's my attempt after already having watched it about 15 times unable to get through:
I think the reason I wanted to focus on watching it without laughing is because my cousins and I used to do the same thing with the "Every Grunt From Home Improvement" compilation. It is 14:37 seconds of literally every single grunt that was ever on that show and it is BRUTAL.
We used it as a drinking game of sorts, and I was never able to make it past 1:30. I also highly recommend you try the no-laugh challenge with this one. (Especially if you can go up against other people.)
Seeing as I have a lot of night owl time on my hands I said, "Fuck it. I'll do the challenge with this one, too." I wanted to see if I could break my old 'drunk with the cousins' record. You can watch that on my Instagram stories if you're at that level of boredom. It was gut-wrenching to get past the first two minutes and then fall apart and this one took a looong ass time. The Christmas grunts eviscerated me over & over.
If you made it through those two I've got the final challenge in the straight-face gauntlet. The one that's made it impossible to get the triple crown of bearing…
I feel terrible that this happened to the lady and I'm glad she's ok now but I will never, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER be able to make it through this one with a stone face. Gun to my head I still couldn't do it. Anyone who says they can is a liar.
If you're quarantining with others have everyone watch and see who falls apart first and who can make it the longest through 'em. Or don't!
