We love our pets, and we want to spoil them with the best toys and treats.

But sometimes, despite our best intentions, our pets have no interest in these fancy things.

Instead, they fall in love with the box the toy came in, or the paper that wrapped it. Or, they’ll completely ignore the toy and play with a random household object — like an empty tissue box or a cardboard box.

Time and time again, we realize and learn that the simplest things in life bring us the greatest joys.

While luxury goods and monetary gains can bring us temporary happiness, they don’t quite provide the joy that the video below provides.

In a viral video that is making rounds online, a black-headed caique is seen hopping around like it’s the happiest creature in the world.

It seems to be having the time of its life, picking up the paper towel on the kitchen floor, rolling its beak, wrapping it around its body, and then rolling over like there’s no tomorrow.

Who knew that paper towels can be so entertaining?

As this bird shows, animals can fall in love with the most random and humble objects.

After watching this video, you may be wondering if all caiques are this playful.

According to Lafeber, they are — in fact, the website states they’re the ‘clown of birds:’

“Caiques have been called clowns of the bird world for good reason — the clown is a truly appropriate metaphor for this high-energy, medium-sized mischief maker. You haven’t seen playful until you’ve seen a caique in action.”

The website also says the birds love toys:

“Toys are a staple of the caique’s energy-diet. Caiques are always “on the go” and love to play with toys, especially toys that they can demolish. Be sure to have a steady supply of new toys on hand to replace the old ones when they become ragged or are disassembled. You’ll have to experiment with several types of toys to find your caique’s favorites. Fortunately, there are many types of toys on the market to choose from, but make sure that they are safe before you give them to your caique.”

This adorable video went viral, receiving more than 3 million views and tons of comments.

One viewer said they’d hire the bird:

“I’d hire this cleaning service.”

Another jokingly said:

“Closest living relative of the dinosaurs, these things. Mighty fearsome creatures.”

A third pointed out that the bird had plenty of toys to choose from:

“and you can see some expensive toys in the background xD”
