This video will never not be funny. We have watched it a million times and it is funny every single time.

Portland's KOIN 6 News was reporting on the city's recent snowfall last Friday when they came across Chelsea and her boyfriend, Michael, who were running in the snow. Because this is local news and why not, they were interviewed.

"It's the perfect texture for running. Very low impact and it's dry snow so your feet don't get wet," Chelsea explained when asked about the perks of running in the snow. Michael chimed in to say, "It's too nice to not be out here."

They ran off and, like the punch line of your new favorite joke, Chelsea ate it in the snow.

Oh boy, even that GIF gets us.

Deadspin spoke with Chelsea, a former A.V. Club writer who actually lives in New York but was visiting Michael in Portland, and she says that, "The ridiculous, awesome irony of the situation cushioned the blow pretty well."

Chelsea explains why she came across so "smug" during the interview, saying,  "I think we both got so serious in front of the camera because we didn't know what to say. Beyond the obvious fact that it's just fun to play in snow.

"We probably should've just yelled WHEEEEE!!! and then somersaulted down the hill."

As for the fall itself, Chelsea says:

The ground was really uneven on the hill where they had us standing and my eyes were still splotchy from the light on the camera. We were actually trying to get back to where it was all powdery and soft (the "perfect texture" I'd so over-eagerly described) when I bit it on that patch of ice.

Though, the fact that the video has gone viral may hurt more than the actual fall—at least for her pride: "When I called my parents last night, my mom and dad were apparently watching it on repeat and laughing hysterically to themselves."

OK, OK, now we need to see the GIF again:
