The old fable of the Tortoise and the Hare is a flawed one, especially when the hare in question is an RV truck with batteries that last for several days straight.

In a video uploaded to YouTube entitled 'Tortoise vs truck', the pet is seen rather adorably giving chase to the truck, which is perpetually out of reach.

The tortoise moves its legs as fast as it can to try and keep up, but the truck's operator rather cruelly pulls away every time it gets close.

As far as animals struggling with inanimate objects videos go, this is up there with the French bulldog puppy desperately trying to fetch its tennis ball.
