Ostrich rehabber and TikToker Wendy Adriaens went viral on Twitter after one of her videos made its way on the social app, and people think it looks like she’s on a romantic date with her ostrich.

In the video, while the theme from Braveheart plays in the background, Adriaens lays out a blanket on the ground and then sits with her legs open to let the ostrich lay down between them. The ostrich then snuggles its neck into her torso. All in all, it's pretty cute.

While most of her followers were getting real-life Disney princess vibes, some found the scene oddly romantic, probably because of the blanket and choice of music. For the Twitter side, who lack the context of her ostrich rescue and day-to-day relationship with the creatures, things went in a slightly more hardcore direction...

Man, I love the way the ostrich lays it’s head down on the lady in that vid, like the second half of the vid is sweet wholesome bird hug, but that first half comes with some weird vibes my dudes

Why is there so much sexual tension here?

Including references to Ancient Greek mythology. Zeus, king of the Greek gods, had a tendency to come to earth in animal form in order to lure women into coming close enough to have sex with him.

"Over 2,000 years later and women still getting tricked by Zeus." Embedded tweet: "New white girl just dropped" and then the tiktok embedded

Love how today's Zeus prefers cuddling than harsh sex

Look, the fact that it worked means Zeus is gonna see how far these humans will take it. It's a challenge now. Find the one thing they won't screw.

She's going to regret this in nine months when she's laying an egg and ending up with twins. And that one-human-one-god bullshit is going to be really difficult during the terrible twos.

Twitter user @AMERICUHHHH pointed out that this all gets much funnier as well as a little awkward when you learn about the ostrich farm problem—ostriches tend to prefer humans over other ostriches when it comes to seeking a mate.

This is a million times funnier if you know it is a Known Problem with ostrich farms that they find humans hotter than other ostriches
@AMERICUHHHH
A male ostrich at the zoo once fell passionately in love with my father and would do a mating dance when we approached. It was great. Smiling face with open mouth and tightly-closed eyes

However, Adriaens has already had to deal with unsavory remarks regarding her relationship with her ostriches, putting this reply video out just a few days ago.
