You won’t believe your eyes when you watch what this farmer does in this hilarious viral video.
It’s true: you really can find a video of almost anything on the internet. Without any introduction or explanation, this video shows a farmer hopping out of his tractor, stripping down to his birthday suit and jumping in a hay baler. He emerges looking somewhat like the country relative of Spongebob Squarepants and is shown happily prancing across the field in his new hay bale attire.
This video has been circulating the internet for awhile, and many farmers and experts who work with hay balers say that there’s no way this happened exactly the way the video portrays it. If a human actually jumped in the back of a baling machine without any sort of protection, they would likely be killed by the compressive force. So seriously, don’t try this at home.
While the legitimacy and purpose of this video still seem to be a mystery, there’s something strangely liberating about the idea of what this guy is doing. Is this what happens to a farmer who has reached his breaking point? Is he simply fulfilling a life-long dream of becoming a hay bale? Or is this some sort of fake marketing ploy that never panned out? The Internet may never know.
