This squirrel thinks he's a bird.

There's really not much to say here: a squirrel -- maybe suicidal, maybe showman -- perhaps in an act of desperation or testing a great new trick, takes a flying leap off the 21st floor of a building (if you want, you can skip the set-up and go to the 1:05 to see the action, which doesn't take long).

Look at him fly (and note the NSFW language by the man watching). He's like the Dark Knight moving through the air, except in this case, it's a squirrel, so maybe "The Dark Nut" is more appropriate.

It's unclear if the squirrel saw something, just wanted to move to a new location or what. It's also unclear if he survived the most epic jump you'll ever see in the urban animal kingdom.
