If you ask most people today about the biggest problem with internet articles and videos, they’ll likely tell you about the misleading headlines, also known as “clickbait.” These stories and videos promise you one thing with sensational headlines and photos only to deliver tons of disappointment after you’ve wasted five minutes of your life reading or watching a huge nothing burger.
Of course, the people who put out this type of content know exactly what they are doing and often pile up lots of cash before their social media pages are banned or abandoned for good. They then change names and repeat the process with a new site. It’s a plague that’s not likely to go away anytime soon, which is why when folks find stories and videos that are “the genuine article,” they are infinitely impressed — no matter how basic the narrative.
One such example is a video uploaded on October 21, 2021, that’s already amassed over 30 million views!
The storyline of this soon-to-be-legendary video is so simple it’s crazy. The cameraperson is standing in a wooded area with a black and brown dog.
Suddenly the horse makes its dramatic entrance as it comes galloping through the opening.
The horse runs past the cameraperson and decides, for some reason, to kick one tree in particular with its hindfoot.
It then circles around.
And runs between the dogs while executing a series of loud farts.
Of course, the dogs give chase to the offending equestrian, and our video concludes.
And YouTube commenters couldn’t stop raving!
This video was so fascinating and, in its own way, a work of art. Many even pointed out the cinematic angles and close-up shots of the horse.
This was probably the best comment.
Now, if the video’s owner has it monetized with advertisements, he could be looking at well over $75.000 or more in revenue. But, I can easily see views for this video hitting a few hundred million over the next few years.
See what all the fuss is about in the video below.
Thanks for reading. Please be sure to “pass” this story along to your friends and family?
