The video begins with Ollie staring out into the rain from indoors, with the caption, ‘Oh goody, it’s raining. Do you know who loves the rain? My ducks!’
We then see Ollie getting prepared to venture outdoors, armed with his little, yellow rain jacket, and ‘special bag’ filled with duck food.
Once Ollie is dressed, he trots out into the rain, until he comes across a group of his duck friends, waddling around in the rain, and swimming in the pond.
As Ollie looks on at his pals, the caption says, ‘I like to watch them nice and peacefully’, before the clip ends with, ‘I wish I could be a duck boy everyday!’
