Though dinosaurs have been extinct for a few years, they’re still the coolest creatures on the planet. They sightsee in London, they pole-dance, they dominate the American Ninja Warrior course, they dance the Macarena, and they prank the hell out of Jurassic World star Chris Pratt.

Clearly, at least one Tyrannosaurus Rex decided to up the ante. That’s why he (or she) decided to ride a horse that happens to be kicking a giant soccer ball and prancing around his pasture. The video is uproariously amusing.

While Michael Gascon—a championship rider from Poplarville, Mississippi, who dresses up like a long-extinct carnivore in his spare time—has a love for Tito, the horse he’s riding in the video, that doesn’t mean he isn’t willing to call him out for his primadonna-like ways.

“He’s a diva,” Gascon told WDAM. “He knows he’s a movie star and he acts like it.”
