Last spring, “How Animals Eat Their Food,” a hilarious video by YouTuber MisterEpicMann went viral (it now has over 100 million views!) It featured two seemingly normal guys quietly eating dinner, when suddenly one of them asks, “wanna see how animals eat their food?” and proceeds to dramatically imitate animals like alligators, groundhogs, and kangaroos. If you haven’t already seen it (which we find hard to believe) you can probably imagine that it was pretty LOL-worthy. It starts off so unassuming and ends with viewers ugly cry-laughing at the thought of “what if this actually happened in real life?” It spawned a sequel video, as well as a plethora of parodies, including a Pokemon version. But now, just over a year later, a new parody is taking over the internet: “How Gamers Eat Their Food.”

Including games like Assassin’s Creed, ThiefMinecraft, Portal, and more, this video by Mr.TVCow is just as hilarious as the original. We’re not too sure why one of the “normal guys” has been replaced by a guy wearing a horse mask, but it certainly adds a little extra something funny to the video. And it’s not just the concept that rocks — the execution is flawless, down to the little details (we especially love the editing in the Max Payne scene.)

No matter what your game of choice is, this video is worth checking out. And while we’re still partial to the original “How Animals Eat Their Food” we think this parody is on par. It might even be better than the Pokemon video. Just saying. #sorrynotsorry
