Well, consider swan floats OVER because they've officially met their match:

The "ridiculous inflatable swan-thing" went viral after Ollie, a Twitter user in New Zealand, shared photos of it in all its glory.

I have never wanted anything more in my life...

People could not handle how beautiful it is.

The man behind the swan is none other than British artist David Shrigley. When BuzzFeed News inquired about his inspiration for the swan, Shrigley kept it brief.

"It’s a swan man or a man swan," he said. "Oh yes, and it should not be used as a life preserver."

People really, really want one.
