No, the “Miley Cyrus” of squirrels isn’t Miley Cyrus thirsty for attention in a squirrel costume. It’s this actual squirrel contending with a Yankee Flipper in this video (via Mashable) set to her song “Wrecking Ball.” Exactly what is a Yankee Flipper? If you guessed “a move that J.Lo pulls on A-Rod during sexy times,” you were wrong!
For those not in the bird feeding game, there is a type of motorized, weight-activated bird feeder called the Yankee Flipper, which spins interloping squirrels around in the circle until they lose their grip on its base.
You gotta give “The Miley Cyrus of Squirrels” some credit. He’s tenacious like you read about.
