THE INTERNET — When you travel to another country, you expect to see new and exciting things.

There are different cultures, people, scenic views, foods and more to dazzle all your senses. Indeed, there are so many beautiful things to do and see in the world, that we’re lucky that we live in the day and age of the internet, so we can see as much as possible, even if we don’t have a lot of time or money.

Unfortunately, this featured video is not exactly a representation of that beauty. Instead, it’s a sort of love letter to absurdity and chaos.

The video stars a small and yappy dog who is in an absolute frenzy. And the reason it’s in a frenzy is because there is a monkey. That is riding a bike. In the middle of a city. Round and round the strange bedfellows go, and where they stop nobody knows. Especially since after one weak attempt, nobody tries to intervene.

It’s truly a strange scene that has a weird balance of entertaining and slightly upsetting. You just can’t look away. You’ll probably even watch with the same confused expression the monkey has on its face as it tries to avoid the excitable dog.

It’s the sort of thing that gives the phrase “stranger than fiction” concrete meaning.
