A video of an overweight hedgehog re-enacting the video for Miley Cyrus 'Wrecking Ball' has gone viral with over 600,000 views in six days.
Regina the overweight hedgehog has become a YouTube sensation after her owner posted a video of her recreating the popular video to video-sharing site YouTube. In the video, Regina is dressed in a white 'tank top', similar to Cyrus in the video, and licks her lips while her owner holds a hammer in front of her.
Regina is overweight due to a medical condition involving "abnormal bacterias" and "possibly pre-cancerous cells", which resulted in her spaying. Following the procedure, she gained weight due to lack of activity, which is "common" in hedgehogs after spaying. Regina is on a special diet and under vetinary supervision, according to her owner.
