Jackson posted the video in slow motion, set to Miley Cyrus' hit song, "Wrecking Ball."

According to Mashable, this type of bird feeder is motorized and weight activated. It spins unwanted squirrels around the base until they lose their grip.

It is called the "Yankee Flipper" and is a popular trending video on YouTube.

The video was posted in late April, but started trending Friday after it was shared by Twitter user Gabrielle Geno.
