VICTORIA, Texas – It was nothing but horseplay at a Victoria Whataburger over the weekend when a man donning a cowboy hat rode into the store on horseback, startling staff and customers.
The eccentric act was caught on Facebook live in a video that has been viewed over 41,000 times since it was posted on Saturday.
The man on the horse identified himself in the comments of the Facebook live video as Damien Rhoder. He said his intention wasn't to scare or hurt anyone.
In the video, Rhoder rides in on a white horse through a side entrance, then jumps off the horse and onto a table as "I Bet You Won't" by Level begins to play in the background.
The song is the focal point of the #IBetYouWontChallenge. It's unclear what exactly the challenge entails, however, a video compilation of the best attempts at the "I Bet You Won't Challenge" shows people doing an attention-grabbing dance in traditionally tame settings such as restaurants.
The video shows Rhoder hopping onto a bench before coming down to the front near the cash registers to complete the "I Bet You Won't" dance as management asks him to leave.
A report from the Victoria Advocate said police were never called in regard to the startling act.
While some find the video hilarious, others are saying someone could have been injured.
Neither Rhoder or the woman who posted the video returned a request for comment Tuesday night.
