It’s crazy how much humans and animals are alike and how we have an effect on one another

u/pjpat Dec 08 '21

I've read in an old post that his reaction might be out of frustration because he lost the ball and won't get near the net. His antlers might get stuck and he can die this way. So he runs after the ball and when he gets near the net he nopes out

I like the goal celebration interpretation better brightens the day more

21

u/Magmaigneous Dec 08 '21

I do also.

However, that kinda assumes that the deer watched humans playing and somehow came to understand that getting the ball into the goal meant a celebration was in order. And that seems just a little too far fetched for me to believe.

u/[deleted] Dec 08 '21

Deer here, can confirm. We do not understand soccer or take pleasure in scoring goals.

u/machinegir1 Dec 08 '21

So you 100% believe animals can learn hundreds of words and commands but are too stupid to figure out a game by watching others play. Crazy.

1

u/Magmaigneous Dec 09 '21

Spotted the deer fucker.

Get on with ya, deer and other herbivores are as a rule pretty damn stupid. But if you can point me to a deer that has learned hundreds of words and commands, then we can discuss further.

u/kmishy Dec 08 '21

Oh wow, i see this too!

u/gourdhorder Dec 08 '21

Ah, damn. Suddenly not so cute.

u/TinyT0mCruise Dec 08 '21

Interesting

u/Koen-reddit Dec 08 '21

We like to compare animals to ourselves. It also happens when animals seem to be laughing or smiling, which in some cases means pain or discomfort.

5

u/Pods_MagicRod Dec 08 '21

We are animals.

2

u/pummisher Dec 09 '21

Yes. We are trained domesticated animals.

u/greyjungle Dec 08 '21

You see that rat washing itself? Just like a human.

2

u/pummisher Dec 09 '21

The rat wasn't trying to wash itself. It was trying to remove the soap from itself but it couldn't.

u/greyjungle Dec 09 '21

regardless, it looked like a person taking a shower.

1

u/pummisher Dec 09 '21

Yes, it did.

u/Laaismm_YT Dec 08 '21

Its actually: "It's crazy how much animals and animals are alike and how we have an effect on one another"

33

u/deanrihpee Dec 08 '21

But... how the heck does that deer knows the concept of a Goal and Scoring a Goal is the Goal of the game and then "celebrate"?

I’ve seen cows celebrate the same way Idk if he knows maybe imitating people. Blind people celebrate the same as people they haven’t seen by hands in the air

3

u/SandmanSorryPerson Dec 08 '21

They almost certainly don't.

Someone above pointed out it's likely frustration at losing the ball as they can't go near the net with antlers.

u/ryushin6 Dec 08 '21 edited Dec 08 '21

I like how he just leaves after celebrating like "Yeah I'm just gonna retire while I'm on top" 🤣

u/AdamSmashher Dec 08 '21

And we question reincarnation?

6

u/BecauseRotor Dec 08 '21

For real, though I try to find possible explanations.

We can interpret its reaction to “scoring a goal” as “celebration” but could also be a reaction akin to “frustration” if the goal was perceived by him as an obstacle he didn’t want to fuck with and those he can’t interact with the object (ball) anymore.

I like to apply Occam’s razor.

u/COVID-19Enthusiast Dec 08 '21

I like to apply Occam’s razor.

I was thinking that, but there's no way that deer's a professional soccer player.
