Before I get to the star of this post, the video, I’m going to give you a little background. As you know, I’ve been trying to use my Instagram account a little bit more. Partly because it really is fun and partly because it’s part of my job. If you go to my account you’re likely to find photos of what I had for breakfast …
what I had for dinner …
And what I won’t be having for dinner …
So a lot of food and chickens with the odd cat thrown in. I’ll also show corners of my house that you don’t normally see and different things I’m working on.
The reason I’m mentioning this is because last week I went out and shot a quick video of the chickens having their afternoon snack for Instagram. You can post videos to Instagram, in case you didn’t know, but they can only be 15 seconds long.
When I looked at the footage I had of the chickens I knew right away there was no way I could cut it down to 15 seconds. It was too ridiculous. And good. So, I decided to withhold it from Instagram and make an entire post out of it.
Also this video took over half a day to edit which explains why the rest of this post is kind of a turd. You’ll forgive me once you watch the video.
Even though I’ve decided to retire as a television host, I think I’ve figured out a way to keep myself in the exciting and high paying world of entertainment without having to be entertaining myself. I’ll make my chickens do the entertaining. Like a stage mother, but only with chickens. So a stage mother hen.
You mark my words, this is an untapped goldmine, this whole chickens eating in slow motion video idea. And that’s what this is by the way. Hollywood will be banging down the coop door in a matter of moments.
Please enjoy this video of the chickens having their afternoon snack, in slow motion, set to Scottish Highland music. Because why not.
Make sure you watch the credits at the end.
No autographs please.
