The Folks Over at Firehouse Wish You a ‘Happy Twerky Day’

We hope you’re ready for Thanksgiving, because the Turkey Day items are starting to pour in. If you’ve noticed that the word “turkey” rhymes with the word “twerky” and find this funny, then you’re in for a treat. For whatever reason (blame Miley), twerking turkeys seem to be a thing this year, and the folks over at independent full-service Dallas agency Firehouse couldn’t resist getting in on the action. Maybe they were just in a celebratory mood after being named creative AOR for San Antonio-based Mexican restaurant chain Taco Cabana last month.

They’ve created a video full of twerking turkeys (actually people dressed in turkey costumes), entitled “Happy Twerky Day.” That pretty much sums things up: dudes holding speakers blasting dance music while people twerk, dressed up as turkeys. If you find that premise funny, you’ll get a good chuckle out of the above video. If you don’t, you’d probably be better off spending that 58 seconds elsewhere. And if all that turkey twerking still isn’t disturbing enough for you, try this GIF of a Miley Cyrus twerking turkey. Or don’t, if you’d still like to sleep at night.
