Monkey cowboys and "the greatest speech ever"

monkey cowboy speech YouTube.com

(CBS) - Rarely at The Feed do we find a video jam-packed with this much awesome. There's a lot of "wild" out in the wild West, but this might be the most bananas rodeo we've ever seen. Meet Team Ghost Riders, a rodeo troupe composed entirely of cowboy monkeys riding on dogs. Really.

Feel free to pick your jaw up off the floor now. The sight of monkeys and dogs herding goats in the middle of a baseball park might be too much for some minds to comprehend. The Feed apologizes if your brain exploded while watching this video.

But then it gets better.

At 6:45, the leader of the rodeo team - Tim "Wild Thang" Lepard - gives what may be the most inspiring speech ever recorded. "In 1962, a boy was born. And his dream, his goal, was to own a monkey." Wow. It's like "You Can Do Anything" times the power of monkey. Seriously, how inspired does that monkey look during the speech?

There's so much going on in this clip. You should probably take it in small bites. And then go out and live your dream. You're the one!
