Bunny Show Hopping Exists, and It’s Pretty Much the Cutest Thing EVER

Ladies and gentlemen, let us introduce the latest hottest sporting trend overtaking Europe.  Forget soccer, forget tennis, forget basketball. Welcome to…

RABBIT. SHOW. HOPPING.

And trust us, it’s as cute as it sounds.  Actually, on second though, it’s even CUTER than it sounds. Take a look:

What I’ve found out so far:

1. It started in Sweden in the 1970’s.

2. There are now clubs all over the world.

3. The world record for highest rabbit jump is held by Snöflingans, of Sweden. SNOFLINGANS, people.

4. Vice was kind enough to record a video of one of these competitions.

As if anyone needed another reason to visit the Nordic countries.  Might as well retire my “cute things to see before I die” bucket list, because I don’t think it’s going to get better than this.

And bonus pics, because why the the heck not. Happy Friday!
