Animal lovers might recall watching footage late last summer of a pig
swimming to the rescue of a baby goat whose hoof had become stuck at the
bottom of a petting zoo pond.
The hero pig nudged the goat free
and it swam ashore. The YouTube clip (posted below) was beyond cute and
went viral after being shared on social media platforms and featured by
most major morning shows and national news networks.
But what many may not know is that the clip was completely staged.
On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that the video was a contrived scene for a new Comedy Central documentary-style series, "Nathan for You," which premieres Thursday and stars Nathan Fielder.
crew of 20, including animal trainers, scuba divers and humane
officers, helped produce the scene, which entailed placing the pig on an
underwater track to ensure that it bumped into the goat.
