9 of the best turkey videos to get you in the mood for turkey day

Ah, the turkey. One of nature’s biggest and most delicious weirdos.

Though you may not realize it, besides gifting us with their savory, sleep-inducing meat, turkeys have also provided us with tons of hilarious content. They’ve been caught on camera gobbling to the tune of honking cars, chasing down mailmen, and performing vaguely disturbing dance rituals. 

So this year, be thankful for all of the wild footage we have of these peculiar creatures. And, while you’re at it, why not check out some of the greatest viral videos featuring turkeys being their absolute strangest selves.

1. Reporter surrounded by turkeys has a melt down

This video featured on an old episode of World’s Funniest! from many years ago shows a reporter surrounded by turkeys becoming increasingly scared by the number of birds around her. 

As they begin to peck at her, she pleads with her producer to rescue her from their enclosure, resulting in some of the best news bloopers out there. 

2. Man gobbles at turkeys and they gobble back

A big group of caged turkeys can’t help but gobble back when a man stationed in a car outside of their enclosure begins gobbling at them. The more he gobbles, the more they gobble, resulting in contagious laughter. 

3. A turkey chases a jogger down the road

A turkey takes an interest in a man jogging down the road and insists on following him, much to his dismay.

4. These turkeys gobble to the tune of a beeping car horn

Immediately after a driver honks their horn, a small group of turkeys can’t help but attempt to mimic the cars beeping horn, no matter how the driver mixes up the length and frequency of their beeps.

5. A turkey gleefully attacks children

Like matadors, a couple of small children wave bandanas in front of a turkey’s face to get a reaction. And in the last 10 seconds of the video the turkey gladly accepts their challenge, as it chases them around the yard resulting in both screams and laughter.

6. This mailman gets attacked by turkeys “everyday”

A mailman sick of turkeys attacking him while he works each day is caught on camera fending them off with a pole he procured to keep them at a distance. 

His poise and composure when dealing with the pesky turkeys is something to emulate.

7. Little girl gets chased by turkeys after taunting them

In clip from AFV, a young girl mocks a turkey, reminding it that it will soon become “Thanksgiving dinner.” 

Sure, the turkey probably has no clue what the girl is saying, but decides to chase her, giving her quite the fright.

8. Turkeys vs. cat face off

A brave tabby cat has a very dramatic — thanks in large part to the wild video editing — face off with a group of rogue turkeys. But don’t worry! Both the cat and the turkeys are fine.

9. The turkey “death ritual”

No other turkey video will ever quite compare to that of the bizarre turkey “death ritual” caught on camera last year, when turkeys were spotted circling a dead cat in Massachusetts. 

In actuality, the turkeys were most likely just curious about the dead cat and trying to get a better look at it, according to National Geographic
