Hang the brakes, this turtle just discovered warp speed and it’s the best thing on the internet right now!

The internet has fallen in love with a sassy little turtle who’s given new meaning to the phrase ‘work smarter, not harder’.

The viral video, uploaded by TikTok user @stephenseivers, has had more than 4 million views and shows a turtle making its way to water… but it’s all over in seconds, not hours like you’d expect.

The turtle whooshes down a ramp, gains enough speed to get airborne for a few seconds and then hurtles to the edge of the dock before dropping into the water with a satisfying ‘plop’.

Turn up the volume and get set set to ruin your day in the best possible way, because you won’t be able to watch this just once.

Even the creator chimed in to explain: “It happened so fast! Lol ! I was kinda scared for him. I tried to carry him but he wasn’t havin it.”

Not his first rodeo?

Plenty of commenters thought this little turtle had done the ramp trick before too.

“Why do I get the feeling that ain’t his first time😳 anyone else think he swims back around and comes back up daily😂😂” – @wico761
