A giraffe kicked a lion's arse on Planet Earth last night, and nobody could cope

Fight of the century.

ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER gripping installment of Planet Earth.

Last night’s episode had any stars — the sassy lizard, these horses blessed with gorgeous tresses, this nightmare-inducing swarm of locusts.

The real MVP of the show, however, was this giraffe.

While being pursued in the desert by a hungry pride of lions, this giraffe took it upon himself to beat up a lion

Trying to beat up a lion might seem like a fool’s errand, but as David Attenborough informed us, a giraffe’s kick is so powerful that it can actually kill a lion.

Look at that leg action. Worthy of a spot in Riverdance, if you ask us.

Nobody at home knew who to root for

You’re either rooting for lions to starve or the untimely demise of a giraffe. Why do nature documentaries have to be so tough?

But people were still able to crack jokes

And some even had advice for lions going forward…

Get some stilts, boys. It’s the only way.
