Squirrels with their heads stuck in yogurt cups is so 2000 and late. 2011 is all about raccoons with their heads stuck in peanut butter jars. Streets ahead. (Thanks for the tip, Evan.)

  5. Failed hipster raccoon doesn’t get that “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” is so 2006.

    I do solemnly swear that henceforth I shall always attempt to derive humo(u)r from the differences between British English and American English

  7. When raccoons try and get in our peanut butter jars momma just chase them off with a broom.

  8. Ostriches did it first and best.

  9. Meanwhile. THIS Skippy still has his head stuck in 1986.

  10. this is almost worse than the time my friends told me to check out that metal box that smelled interesting but turned out to be a trap #racoonpranks

    • Or how about that time they put a shiny cool thing in a hole and I could fit my paw in to get it, but then when it was in my paw, I couldn’t fit it out of the hole.

  11. I like that raccoon’s instincts:

    “shit, my head is stuck inside this thing, and it is making it hard to see and coordinate movement at all. I’m going to climb up something tall!”

  12. “You got your peanut butter in my rabies!”
    “You got your rabies in my peanut butter!”.

    Two great tastes that taste great together.

  13. “Thank god that raccoon is safe.” — Japan

    • The Japanese have a foolproof system of raccoon safety.*

      *This should not be taken to be making fun of Japan, or the very real tragedy continuing to occur there. I do, however love this picture.

  14. How else do you get every last bit of delicious peanut butter?

  15. How many more raccoons must be comically inconvenienced before Big Peanut Butter FINALLY gives in and creates the double sided opening jar I’ve been demanding for years?

  16. You have to wonder how many high fives went around the NBC offices when they finally got clearance from the network execs to air this.

    “Dara, we had to do some embarrassing things, but they’re gonna let us go live the raccoon peanut butter jar head electrical pole story. DON’T FUCK IT UP!”

  17. Bill Gates > Tom Rogers “Great job! This is totally news!”

  18. Poor raccoon! That must have been a “jarring” experience.

  21. U Jelly, squirrel with it’s head stuck in a yogurt cup?

  22. Do you think they included that shot of the kids pointing up at the raccoon enough times? I don’t think three was enough.

  23. I DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE I CAN’T LOOK AT A RACCOON WITH ITS FACE STUCK IN A PEANUT BUTTER JAR WITHOUT WATCHING AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR STAIN REMOVER FIRST.

    Videogum paywall, please!

    • I had high hopes of being the first commenter in this thread, but I’ve just now recovered from the seizure I suffered caused by the “CLICK HERE FOR MORE” flashing text. I think I bit off part of my tongue.

  24. I must say, Nasim Pedrad has really nailed down her newscaster character.

  25. When that raccoon’s album drops Good Morning America is going to show this clip, sending it into a frenzy.

  26. Ooh-rah

    (Peanut Butter Jarhead)

  27. How the heck could they actually have seen that thing!? Everytime the camera panned upwards it stopped like an (exaggerated) mile off the ground!

  28. Didn’t that raccoon see the squirrel video? Or do only birds have internet?
