Yes, it’s an ad, but it’s a darn good one. This fun video from Mercedes-Benz demonstrates a chickens (as well as many other birds) ability to keep its head almost perfectly positioned in the same place despite moving its body from side to side. Destin over at SmarterEveryDay discussed the phenomenon back in 2008 and I’ve included it above for reference. Y’know, for science.
