Rooster Crows For So Long It Runs Out Of Breath And Passes Out
A rooster was caught on film crowing for so long he ran out of breath, causing him to pass out and crash backwards, before springing right back up on his feet like nothing had happened. Watch it below:
Play it cool, mate.
The rooster, who lives in Denizl in Turkey, went viral after the footage of his embarrassing little display was shared online.
The rooster's owner Okan Gokbudak said the bird does the same thing each and every time he crows, making him somewhat of a local celebrity.
Gokbudak said: "My rooster was crowing in the henhouse and I looked at it because the noise just went on and on, and then I noticed that the bird started to shake before suddenly passing out."
He added: "I decided to film it and when I shared on social media, my rooster became an overnight celebrity.
"I guess the reason it passed out is because it was simply too ambitious. He doesn't know when to stop, which means it keeps running out of breath and then faints.
"I know they have a reputation for crowing a lot, but I have to admit that this is certainly not usual even for this breed."
Roosters are an important symbolic bird in Denizl and crowing times of around 20 to 25 seconds are often recorded.

The bird has been a symbol of the region for almost a thousand years as confirmed by excavation works at Laodicea that found a 900-year-old image of a Denizli Rooster used as a symbol of the city.
Earlier this year, a farmer in Holland showed off his unusual chickens that lay green eggs and have blue meat.
Schijndelaar chickens are a special breed that originate from Dutch town of Schijndel. Although outwardly they look the same as other hens, they have fibromelanosis mutation, a genetically determined hyper-pigmentation condition which causes the unusual colouring of the bird's insides and eggs.
Mutations of the Fm gene result in the excessive accumulation of black pigment in the skin and several other tissues and organs.
Despite their appearance, the eggs and meat produced by the chickens are the same as any other chickens.
One of the breed's inventors Ruud Kaasenbrood told local media: "The breed came to existence a decade ago while ESKV members enjoyed a beer together.
"On a beer mat we wrote down the breeds we had to combine and from that we created a chicken that could lay green eggs.''
