Okay, okay, it's not actually using a snowboard, and no, we have no knowledge of this particular crow having any other experience in skateboarding, skydiving, extreme ironing or the like - but what does that matter? It's a crow! Sledging down a roof!

This, ladies and gentlemen, was what the internet was made for. That and winding people up, of course.

The crow has become an internet phenomenon after YouTuber penelopakristi's one and only video "Crow roof tubing" was picked up by Reddit earlier this week - and now it's exploded into an video viral sensation... and it's easy to see why.

The video proves without a shadow of a doubt that crows are damn clever birds. Now all we need is someone to train a few to ice-skate, ski and toboggan and then we'd really have something. Really have something really weird, but really have something all the same.

But for scientific, proper proof of crows being pretty brainy, check out this video of one using tools to pull out a bit of food from a tube. Go on, check it out. We dare you.
