Remember the 'Pig Rescues Baby Goat' video that went viral last year?

Well, we hate to break it to you, but: turns out it was fake.

Here's a reminder of the original:

And now click play on the video at the top of the page to have the curtain lifted and learn that the Wizard is, in fact, prankster Nathan Fielder - who staged the whole thing to help promote a petting zoo.

Except... did he? Wait. Is the new video a fake too?!

Sort of. Because as the 'New York Times' has reported it was created for a new Comedy Central series, 'Nathan For You', "with the help of some 20 crew members, including animal trainers, scuba divers and humane officers."

We feel like we don't know anything any more. Why, next thing you know they'll be telling us this cat isn't friends with a rooster. Or that this cat isn't massaging a pug. Or in fact, that none of these animals are riding on top of each other...
