What is going on with this squirrel?

A short video is currently racking up millions of views on Imgur, and for the life of us, we cannot figure out what is going on in it.

The seconds-long clip titled, "this squirrel must be eating the most delicious nut in the world," depicts a squirrel who appears to be nibbling on some type of nut or berry.

Suddenly, he starts to straighten his back, raising his head towards the sky before losing his balance and toppling over backwards -- never once, however, does he break his steady eating pace.

This squirrel must be eating the most delicious nut in the world

Some of the 3 million Imgur users who have viewed the puzzling video have utilized the comments section to try and figure out what exactly is happening.

One speculated maybe the squirrel "has eaten fermented apples. Drunk on cider!"

"Unfortunately," said another, "I'm here to tell you this squirrel has a debilitating neurological disorder..."

Until we have a definitive answer, we guess we'll just have to be optimistic and assume that it really was just the most delicious nut in the world.
