So a man rides a horse into a Taco Bell.

No, this isn’t the beginning of a silly joke with an even sillier punchline.

In North Texas, horseriding isn't just a sport-- it's the preferred method of travel. Last weekend, third-generationTexan Lathan Crump had just finished competing in tie-down calf roping at the Commerce rodeo.

He says it’s tradition to enjoy a meal at Taco Bell after a competition. But instead of leaving his horse tied up outside, he decided to make his visit one that staff and patrons wouldn’t soon forget.

"Well it's just kind of an everyday thing for us to do stuff like that,” the cowboy told FOX 4. “It's not really a big deal, but I guess everybody else don't ever see nothing like that."

Crump posted the video with the description, “When you roll through Taco Bell in Texas but the Drive-thru is out of order.”

People in the background can be heard laughing, squealing and expressing their shock as the horse and rider trot through the store entrance. 

Crump’s horse, aptly named Hollywood, seems ready for the Internet fame.

"[He] travels around with me everywhere and every day and just hardly do anything without him,” said Crump. "Everybody got a big laugh about it. And it's been blowing up big all over social media."

The video, and its copies, have racked up thousands of likes across various social media platforms.
