    An Australian Man Is Going Viral For Saving A Sheep From A Barbed Wire Fence And Honestly, It's Been The Best Two Minutes Of My Week So Far

    This is exactly what I needed right now.

    Nick Cummins is a former Bachelor Australia contestant and rugby player.

    His nickname is "Honey Badger," so he usually just goes by that.

    And it appears he's kind of an Australian icon.

    He's also very outdoorsy.

    He has a new TV show called Off the Grid, but that has nothing to do with this post.

    We're here to watch a super-viral video of him saving a sheep from a barbed wire fence.

    Because honestly, the video is really, really great:

    In the video, Honey Badger spots the sheep in distress.

    With bulging biceps, he goes for the save.

    With a wiggle and tug, the poor lil' sheep is freed.

    Honey Badger says the sheep is in somewhat of a hypnotized state.

    Then he has to figure out how to get this lil' bugger over the fence.

    He's casually holding the sheep like it's just some grocery bags that need to get inside the house.

    Then it's time for the sheep to go over the fence!
