The makers of this video seem to think they needed to improve on reality by intimating that the emu was dancing the tango with this battery-powered ball. But it’s not necessary to pretend that. It’s amusing enough to watch the emus go: Ball. Ball? Ball! Ball? OMG ball!


These emus are part of the crew at Camels & Friends, farm animals who live in Arizona. If you’re interested in how they’re being raised, check out the whole situation. If you’re just interested in watching this video 800 times, come sit by me.
