Aussie Zookeeper Becomes Overnight Celebrity For Dancing During Giraffe Live Stream
An Australian zookeeper has gone viral around the world after he was 'caught' dancing during a live video stream.
Zoos across the globe have started live-streaming their enclosures to allow people to see animals from the confines of their homes amid the coronavirus pandemic.
You can see loads of different species just hanging out and enjoying their lives without knowing the outside world has been changing dramatically.
Well, one bloke became an overnight celebrity when a camera at his zoo captured him busting out a few moves.
The live-stream was trained on the giraffe enclosure at Melbourne Zoo, with viewers being treated to a glorious view of the zoo's beautiful and tall giraffes.
But for a few seconds, the lucky viewers who tuned in at the right moment got a full-on dance routine from a staff member who was working behind the scenes.
Thankfully, someone recorded the epic dance and posted it onto Reddit, where it's been viewed by tens of thousands of people.
One person wrote: "He's been waiting for this his entire life."
Another added: "This man has my vote for Prime Minister."
A third person accurately said: "We should not be keeping these in captivity. They need to be free and roaming our streets, teaching us fabulousness. The world needs fabulousness now more than ever."
While we can't confirm whether we'll ever get to see something this fun on the zoo's live streams again, you will be able to get access to the cameras whenever you want (just don't bank on being able to see an animal).
The Zoos Victoria website is hosting four different live-streams from places at Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo.
"See Melbourne Zoo's three baby Snow Leopard cubs as they play under mum's watchful eye in their den," the site says.
"Enjoy the penguins as they go about their busy day; look up high and spot the giraffes as they spend most of the day eating; and check out the lazy lions of Werribee Open Range Zoo as they lord over their very own Pride Rock.
"Can't see them? That's because our animals live in areas that are much bigger than what a camera can capture and they have the choice to wander wherever they please. Check back in later to spot them."
So, if you've been bored at home and want to check out some wildlife then have a look at the live stream to abate your boredom.
