This is nuts! Squirrel steals GoPro, films desperate dash up a tree

Look out, Disney. This filmmaking rodent takes "found footage" to a new level with its own nature documentary.

Hey, this is kind of a funny-looking acorn. Hmm, nobody's looking, what if I just grab it? Cool, mom didn't notice and that obnoxious grabby-paws Rocky didn't clue in. I'm off to the races!

Hmm, it's kinda hard hauling it all the way up the tree trunk into the pantry, but now that I'm safe I can finally take a bite and...owww! It's a whaaa? A CAMERA? This isn't edible at all! I practically broke a front fang on that dang thing!

Oh well, maybe I can rethink this. Could be a new career for me if I play this right. Steven Squirrelberg, I'll call myself. Here, I'll just peek my handsome nose into the frame. Ooh, and I just groomed my whiskers, let's put them on display. I'd like to thank the academy, and whoever created acorns, and people who always keep their dogs on leashes, and -- I DROPPED IT! OH, NUTS!

Thanks a lot, humans. What a corny joke.
