This is the bizarre moment a man dances with his chubby pet pig in the middle of Moscow before putting it in a pram and pushing it away.
Russian man Artur Kobzar has decided to try to turn his pet pig Oscar into an internet star.
Kobzar, 30, who has two children with his wife Christina, named Matvey and Stepan, has launched a YouTube channel dedicated to Oscar.
The video taken at the VDNKh exhibition centre in the capital city of Moscow, shows Kobzar swinging around with the heavy Oscar in his arms.
The proud owner said in an interview with Central European News (CEN): “We got there to shoot our very first video. Towards the end of the video I suggested holding him in my arms and swinging a bit.”
Netizen ‘victoriastepanova’ commented: “This is hilarious. Please continue with your videos, they are so much fun.”
Another one ‘ksana_cat06’ added: “OMG what kind of pet you got.”
Oscar is reported to be three and a half years old, and his owner did not specify under what circumstances it joined his family.
Kobzar said that he wants to continue with short videos, pranks, and maybe clips involving his children.
He added to CEN: “Let’s see how it goes.”
