A squirrel is going viral after being caught on video sliding down a slippery bird feeder pole.

A homeowner in the Poconos was fed up with squirrels raiding the bird feeder, so he spread olive oil on the pole.

The results? Hysterical and effective! The owner says he also throws seeds on the ground for the squirrels, but they're just a bit too greedy for their own good.
