A cute kiwi bird walking down the road minding his own business discovers a golden nugget. After poking and prodding the strange nugget, the kiwi decides to drink it. Suddenly, all is yellow and warm, and the kiwi can fly for the first time. Soon, the kiwi is running to find his next nugget even if he stumbles after the brief flight. The only problem is, after each nugget the flights keep getting shorter and the falls keep getting harder. 

The cartoon, titled Nuggets, was published by German animators Film Bilder a month ago, but the animation has only gone viral now with over half a million new views!
