Sometimes an animal video is so relatable it speaks to your soul.
Sometimes it's two unrelated animals becoming friends and you send it to your bestie. Sometimes it's a mama and baby and you cheer up your mom or child with a quick link.
Sometimes, though, you're a raccoon emerging from a dumpster.
And that's okay.
A video of a raccoon emerging bedraggled from a dumpster has gone viral on TikTok, and people on the internet find it highly relatable. Perhaps too relatable.
Reactions were creative, with people coming up with scenarios in which they felt kinship with the raccoon in the video.
Then people started adding in their own music as a background.
Others just came up with examples of what the raccoon reminded them of, inventing characters or people to project upon it.
Others took the opportunity to reference Rocket, the raccoon character in the Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe's Guardians of the Galaxy series.
And, lastly, the musical remixes of the original video continued over on TikTok itself.
May you bring your best raccoon emerging from a dumpster energy to your life today.
