In the small town of Buffalo Grove, Illinois, the Baran family has quite the head-turner in their 150-pound pig, Norbert.

Surprisingly, the black and white pig is an avid skateboarder, gliding around the town and amping up the residents.

Norbert The Pig


"People just really enjoy seeing a pig do things that normally pigs don't do," Vincent Baran told WLS-TV. "I took one of my old skateboards and put it out and literally within seven days he was able to get his hooves on the board and push with his other hooves."

A Pig With Tricks

The couple said Norbert is an expert at several tricks commonly associated with dogs, including shaking hands and spinning, but skateboarding gets him the most attention.

"He's not always graceful but it's definitely a unique thing to see," Alicen Baran said. "It's just the craziest thing to see him kind of roll on by."

Music Videos

Norbert has also become famous on social media after his owners started casting him in recreations of famous music videos from pop punk bands including Blink 182 and New Found Glory.
