A video of a man failing to jump over a camel after it kicked him went viral on social media, drawing thousands of laughs on the camel’s wit.
The video appears to have been shot in the UAE, where camel-racing heritage and camel beauty pageants are popular.
The video, edited in slow-motion to add dramatic effect, shows a man running and trying to jump over a camel. As soon as he makes the jump, the camel lifts one of its hind legs and kicks him.
Social media users wrote comments such as “the camel was merely saving further embarrassment” and “proper leg sweep,” a popular move in different kinds of martial arts used to trip an opponent.
Camel festivals are commonly held in Gulf countries, where competitions judging the beauty and speed of the desert animals are intense with contestants seeking to win prizes that reach millions of dollars.
