Twiggy the waterskiing squirrel wows X Games. (Yes, you read that correctly.)

This is Twiggy. Twiggy is a squirrel. A pet squirrel. Pet squirrels are apparently a thing. Twiggy also waterskis.

Waterskis so well, in fact, that Twiggy was crowned the real MVP – Most Valuable Pet – of this year’s X Games Austin.


Or, as Lawrence Bader, pointed out on GoPro’s YouTube video of the bizarre escapade: “Squirrel’s got nuts.”

More than 1.2 million people have watched – and been confused – by this viral video.
