This is the comical moment a Jack Russell is spotted cycling its feet through the air to mimic its fellow commuters.
The footage, which was filmed by philosophy student Phoebe Thurlbeck, 20, as she travelled through Waterloo tube station in London, shows the brown and white pup trotting its feet through the air as it is carried down the escalator.
The owner, who was still wearing an apron from work, stares blankly ahead as the dog vacantly watches the steps disappearing while paddling its short legs.

Ms Thurlbeck, from Hinchley Wood, Surrey, said: ‘It was so cute. The little thing obviously thought he was walking down there.
‘He seemed to think he was going for a little adventure. It was doing that the whole way down the escalator. It was about 30 seconds.

‘This was around rush-hour time when I was coming back from university, so it made my day seeing it trotting away in the air.
‘I don’t think anybody else clocked what it was doing, then when I started filming they all laughed.

‘It made it almost funnier that the owner hadn’t even noticed, or he was actually like it was the most normal thing in the world?’
Ms Thurlbeck, who has two dogs herself, has not seen the canine or it’s owner since their brief encounter but believes neighbouring Surrey is a hot-spot for ‘quirky pets’.
She added: ‘I’ve never seen the dog or its owner since – such a shame. I have two dogs myself so I’m such a dog lover. I love them.
‘I’ll often see dogs in tracksuits similar to their owners’, or some even in pushchairs.
‘But I’ve got to admit, most of the quirky pets I tend to see are when I am walking my dogs in Surrey, there’s a local Chow Chow called Pluto who is adorable.’
