Pretty interesting camera system behind the video. I had never even heard of them (Phantom) and they're made in the US! Unheard of.

I wanna be a cheeta. Don't like being a human any longer.

But you'd be endangered and hunted down by poachers and trophy hunters (illegally). But they do make running after a yarn ball on a string look effortless...

The Cincinnati Zoo runs cheetahs during the spring, summer and fall 5 times a week. The show is cool to see how fast the cheetahs can run. It's a pretty cool show to watch.

There are parts of the video that look so real that it almost looks fake.

Ya know, I get all this stuff about putting animals in Zoos to protect them from a whole host of shit in their natural habitat, with the shit coming from f'g humans who f' with 'em. And of course doing that to ensure that their species survives, blah, blah. But I'll tell ya what, beautiful as these animals are as shown here, there is just something that deeply saddens me to see such an elegant animal chasing a f'g "fur ball" being towed on a motorized line.
