About

How Animals Eat Their Food is a series of short comedy skits in which the actors humorously depict how different species of animals would feed at a dining table.

Origin

On April 8th, 2013, YouTuber MisterEpicMann[1] uploaded a video showing two men seated at a table sharing a meal, with one of them performing an interpretive dance to show how different species of animals eat while the other sits quietly, unaffected. In just four days, the video reached 7 million views.[12] Within the first two weeks, the video accrued nearly 47.5 million views on YouTube and 3.5 million shares on Facebook.[2]
