The amount of animal videos on the internet is actually insane.
Since the very first days of YouTube, animal videos have been a fixture.
Way back in the day, there was dramatic chipmunk.
And then there was the running lizard, set to the music from Benny Hill.
And now, All In With Chris Hayes has given us the speeding javelina, who was spotted sprinting through downtown Tucson, Arizona.
What is a javelina?
According to the Desert Museum, javelina "are medium-sized animals that look similar to a wild boar. They have mainly short coarse salt and pepper colored hair, short legs and a pig-like nose. The hair around the neck/shoulder area is lighter in color giving it the look of a collar. Javelina have long, sharp canine teeth which protrude from the jaws about an inch."
And boy is that little javelina speeding through the suburbs.
Of course, the internet has instantly given it the meme treatment.

After all, set to the proper song, the javelina's running becomes just that much more epic.

In fact, the meme has gotten so popular, that there is now an entire Twitter account solely dedicated to the javelina running to different songs.
Do you think that javelina had any idea they would be propelled to internet stardom for a few days?
The account already has more than 10,000 followers.
In the future, when archaeologists uncover videos like this, we shudder to think the conclusions they'll draw about early 21st century society.
