In an interesting reversal, a young Chinese child unseated the predominating meme of hungry birds stealing food from humans.
The setup played into the hands of the girl, who took charge of the unsuspecting avian and snatched a morsel directly from the victim dove’s beak. All while her unwitting accomplice–her mother–attracted the bird under the guise of feeding pigeons.
While it is surely satisfying to witness the vanquishing of the notion of birds always being the ones who succeed in this manner of theft, the production of this video could have benefited with appropriate irony the inclusion of a certain Rossini overture.
Undoubtedly, and like clockwork, she debuted her fledgling inner Kubrick.
