A video of a frog sitting on a bench like a human has gone viral. So what is it about this real-life Kermit that makes him so special?
The 43-second YouTube video that features a frog just chillin' on a bench has already gotten over 5 million views, and there are plenty of people that are skeptical about the creator's claim that the frog was sitting on the bench of its own free willÂ—some even think it was nailed to the bench. However, the caption under the video says that nothing was used to force the frog to sit there and that he later jumped off of the bench and "galloped away to the water." So the frog doesn't just sit like a humanÂ—it moves like a horse.
For some reason humans just love it when critters act like themÂ—they train dogs to ride skateboards; giggle at felines that can "talk" like the "Oh Long Johnson" cat; and wish that they could visit the roadside waving bear at the Olympic Game Farm in Washington. It's just a shame that these animals will never know just how famous they are. But it could be a good thing for the sitting frogÂ—Miss Piggy and Warner Bros. would probably both love to get their hands on him so that they could put a little top hat on him and parade him around.
There is one big question about the sitting frog on a bench like a human, howeverÂ—how did it get on that bench? It's pretty far off of the ground, so he would have had to make quite a leap to get up there. And if he did, why did he decide to jump on the bench and sit on the edge of it? Was he simply mimicking what he's observed humans doing, or was he just looking for a good spot to relax and keep an eye out for predators? Unfortunately he'll never get to do an interview about his internet fame like those "Hot Problems" girls, but the real Kermit is probably relieved that his competition isn't quite as talented as he is.
