This dog video has been online for nearly a decade. Although it is pretty old – at least when it comes to viral content online – it has longevity. This dog video has stood the test of time. People are still watching it to this day and sharing their reactions to it in the comments on YouTube. With nearly 201 million views at the time of this writing, this video continues to entertain more people than live in most countries across the globe.
The video was posted to the Talking Animals YouTube channel, which has more than a million subscribers. It was among the first of the channel’s videos and helped transform the channel from a small-time operation to a massive viral content producing factory.
In the funny video, the dog gets very close to the camera and “talks” to the owner about various things dogs would be interested in. The owner teases the dog about opening the meat drawer in the freezer. He also says a few other things that get the dog going and ranting in a hilarious way.
When the owner mentions the word bacon, the dog’s eyebrows lift up. The pooch is clearly interested in getting its teeth on a bite of that bacon. The owner describes how he took the maple-flavored bacon out of the fridge and thought about someone who would like to eat it. Unfortunately for the dog, the person who the owner thought would like the bacon was himself. The dog reacts with a loud groan of disappointment.
The footage lines up perfectly with the back and forth dialogue between the dog and his owner. And the emotions of the dog’s reaction match perfectly to what the dog shows on his face and with his actions.
