That got recommended to me today, too. For me, it was part 4.

My grandmother saw it also and conjectured that this is expected behaviour when grabbing a duck that way, but she said that she might be wrong. Does anybody here has experience in picking up and holding ducks?

It looks to me like the duck is being held at a height above the drum at which its feet can just barely reach down and touch it. The duck can sense that its feet are making contact, but it can't plant them firmly enough to support its weight.

So it keeps trying and trying to stand, but alas, its legs aren't quite long enough to reach the ground.
