You may have seen this goofy laughing owl video all over your social media feeds this morning, and if you haven't, you really should.

The video, re-uploaded and edited by VanCityVideo, features 15 seconds of a snow owl "laughing" over a audio track. The post, which now has over 300,000 views, was originally uploaded by YouTube user Adam Poley titled, "Everytime I visit this owl it gives me this face."

While some have said the owl looks stoned and silly, some YouTube commenters point out the owl may be in distress. An alternative theory? It may just be mimicking humans.

Watch the video above to see for yourself.
