Just A Video Of Some Police Officers Chasing A Pig

"The jokes just write themselves."

Cue the “Benny Hill” theme tune.

An escaped pig gave police officers the runaround in Redbridge, northeast London, on Wednesday afternoon. Amusing video shows two cops chasing after the porker, who’d somehow liberated itself from nearby land.

The animal even charged at a runner as it ran across a busy road, before the officers apprehended the pig and returned it to its owner.

The Roads and Transport division of London’s Metropolitan Police shared the footage, which was filmed on a stationary patrol car’s dashcam, to Twitter.

Nothing to see here,” the police wrote. “Just east traffic officers chasing a pig who then decides to chase after a passing jogger.”

The video is now going viral, and has prompted many tweeters to allude to the same joke:
