Bull Elk Sleepily Nods Off to Brahms' 'Lullaby'

This bull elk appears flat out exhausted. He does his best to keep his heavy eyelids open, but with Brahms' "Lullaby" playing in the background it's a losing battle. 

While a few cows graze in the background, a young bull scratches himself a bed and does his best to stay awake.

It's a comically fruitless effort, with Brahms' famous bedtime tune being too much for the weary king to overcome.

The short film was made by Scott Root for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.

If you're having any trouble sleeping at night, or feel the overwhelming need for a midday nap, you might keep this little video handy just to get you started on some Zs of your own.
