Squirrel 'Came in Like a Wrecking Ball,' Immediately Regretted It

For those of you with bird feeders in your yard, you know that squirrels can be quite persistent when trying to snag a quick meal. And you also know that they cannot be deterred, even when faced with the prospect of going for a ride.

There's no shortage of videos featuring them taking a spin on squirrel-proof feeders, but one clip that went viral this week may be the most entertaining of all time.

Originally posted to YouTube in April, it gained significant steam this week when Gabrielle Geno shared it on Twitter, encouraging "everyone to take the time out of your day to please watch this."

The incredible theatrics from the squirrel are made even better by being perfectly synched up with Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball."


The video has been viewed nearly 4.5 million times on Twitter, and it's been retweeted more than 150,000 times.

The song choice is perfect, considering squirrels do indeed come in like wrecking balls.

We've seen it in person at Plum Creek Nature Center.
