It’s safe to say that Tian Tian the panda captivated America when the Smithsonian’s National Zoo posted a video to their Facebook page of him rolling around in the snow.

However, a man from Millersville, Maryland, reacted quite differently.


Jeffrey Perez challenged Tian Tian to a “snow battle,” according to Good Morning America, using a panda suit he has owned for about six years. No doubt finally putting it to good use.

In the video, Perez attempts to one-up Tian Tian by rolling around in the snow, mimicking the animal’s routine, even doing Tian Tian’s signature foot-in-the-mouth move.

Perez says he has plans to visit Tian Tian with his family wearing the suit, according to ABC News.

The winner of this battle has not been stated, but we have a pretty good idea who it might be.

And in case you missed the original, watch it here.

Tian Tian woke up this morning to a lot of snow…and he was pretty excited about it. #Blizzard2016
