Meanwhile, in New Zealand

This was news in New Zealand. Not about the bouncing sheep—that’s common enough, though the trampoline is optional. Instead, it was the fact that the video became so popular so fast. People watch the darndest things.

Still, it's interesting that RNZ took it seriously enough to explain that sheep commonly jump, and why. Why did they do that? Was it because of the extent of the urban/rural divide in New Zealand these days, that many people have never seen sheep on a farm except on TV? Or in viral videos? In any case, it's extremely comforting that this is news in New Zealand.
