If you stepped away from the Internet Thursday afternoon you may have missed a pair of llamas that caught the nation's attention.

ABC 15 says the two llamas were on the lam for nearly an hour, running through Sun City, Arizona, dodging their captors, before finally being lassoed and loaded onto their trailer.

And the chase for these llamas went viral. The Internet stopped to watch the live-stream of the high-speed chase, pushing "llamas" to the top of trending topics on Twitter nationwide.

Once captured, the llamas appeared to be fine and were given back to their owners, ABC 15 notes.

Here's how the Internet reacted:

Even some companies took advantage of the llama-tunity:
