Google’s (s GOOG) Chrome speed tests ad is super cool. The YouTube version has millions of views and rightfully so — it’s impressive to watch the high-speed camera depict the time to load a web page as compared to a potato gun, the speed of sound and lightning.

But Opera, the little browser that could, has a cheeky response. In contrast to Google’s MythBusters-as-art aesthetic, Opera goes a little more Royal Tenenbaums-in-Norway with a video posted to its official YouTube account yesterday. The result of Opera’s own speed test? The browser is also “much faster than a potato.” Love it.
