Who knew giraffes have a thing for motorcycles?

A giraffe took a biker gang in South Africa by surprise when it tried to ride one of their BMW motorcycles.

In a video posted to YouTube by user Ryno Greeff, the giraffe is seen ambling over to the bike (whose rider had just gotten off) and trying to climb on. Its long, spindly legs slip against the side for a few seconds in one gigantic cute fail.

Turns out the bike, which may have been mistaken for a female friend, just wasn't made for him.

The video was posted to YouTube last year, but is just now gaining traction after appearing on Reddit.
