Video of the unfaithful steed’s antics has gone viral on YouTube, racking up almost 2.5 million views since September. A dramatic horse named Jingang has greater ambitions than being a mere steed. It doesn’t seem to appreciate being ridden by others as a horse should.

Instead, it goes out of its way to avoid doing its job. He prefers to play the dead move just to make sure noone rides him. It’s silly. It’s funny. And it’s proof that some animals would rather laze about than earn their carrots like we do, by the sweat of our brows.

Jingang’s Oscar-worthy performance has prompted an outpouring of support online, with one newfound fan musing, “That horse is a genius, wish I could just do that every time someone I don’t like comes near me.”
