Exercise, as we know, is important for everybody. And this pigeon got the memo, too. It was recorded on camera hard at work as it ran on a treadmill – er, make that an escalator bannister.

The video (above) posted on Twitter shows a pigeon defying an escalator by running in the opposite direction. But give it the benefit of the doubt, maybe it was just exercising.

The video has gone viral, for good reason.

The escalator-treadmill-workout also appears to be a conspiracy in the pigeon world. In 2012, another video of a pigeon similarly using an escalator to work out went viral as well.
