We can’t attest to how genuine this video is — some commenters suspect it was staged — but it’s pretty funny all the same.
The video was uploaded to YouTube earlier this month by someone using the name Joe Ballew. And it looks like it could hit the million-view mark before the month is out.
In it, a male voice, presumably Ballew’s, can be heard showing off his newly repaired fence.
“Yep, just completed fixing this fence. Pretty proud of it I’d have to say,” the man says. “Kinda keeps Stella in the yard.”
Just how “kinda” becomes obvious seconds later — when Stella comes into the frame and easily jumps over what appears to be the new section of fence.
“Dammit,” the man can be heard to say.
What makes some viewers suspicious is that just before Stella appears, the otherwise smooth camera work is interrupted with a jolt, and a slight human grunt can be heard — almost as if the camera operator is throwing something he knows Stella, fence or no fence, is going to go after.
We, too, might question how straightforward Ballew is being, but we are still mighty impressed with Stella’s jumping ability.
