In honor of Jan. 21 being both Hug Appreciation Day and Squirrel Appreciation Day, actor Justin Long made a video skit for “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” where he combines the two days and tries to celebrate Squirrel Hug Appreciation Day.
Unfortunately, the real squirrels don’t really go for it — one even bites him. But Justin does find solace in the arms of a giant plush squirrel, then promptly fouls everything up by taking things a little too far. Oh, Justin.
Below, Valerie Azlynn gives Craig a crocheted skeleton squirrel to celebrate. Everybody’s getting in on the fun!
