And the award for Best Fake Death goes to — drum roll please — Pinto the horse who plays dead from Kerens.
On Monday, Pinto’s owner Mark N. Kelley posted a video of the horse playing possum that quickly went viral. Currently, the video has more than 32 million views.
Kelley posted the video after some electrical contractors were working on his farm and saw Pinto lying on his back. They panicked thinking he was truly dead, one even claiming rigor mortis had already set in. But apparently, that’s just Pinto’s pastime. Kelley even said on Facebook that Pinto has been acting for years.
Hope to see your name in shining lights one day, Pinto.
