Please Watch this Magical Dancing Chickens Commercial

September 26, 2013

Bear with me, here, because this is not a dance video, per se.

(But in a way it TOTALLY IS and it is fantastic and I love it and you should watch it about 100 times right now.)

Did you know that chickens have the strange ability to keep their heads stable, no matter what their bodies are doing? Apparently that allows them to maintain a consistent field of vision, which helps them better detect the movement of the tiny little bugs they like to eat.

Of course, some humans have also mastered this skill…

…which, yes, is pretty cool. But for some reason it’s cooler when chickens do it. Which is why this Mercedes-Benz commercial (tagline: “Stability at all times”) is so genius.

Enjoy, and happy Friday, everyone!
