If our animal friends could talk, what would they say? “Hey, I could use some more kibble over here if you can tear yourself away from the phone!” “My belly could use a good rub right about now.” And there’s always the classic, “Hey let’s get you dressed up in a sombrero and go and prank some young ladies!”
OK, that’s probably not a thought that’s crossed the mind of many of our furry, four footed friends but we’d have to say that this little guy – not gonna call him by that name they use in the video – is really great at doing deadpan. He’s a natural. He probably studied with some great acting coaches, or maybe he’s just the strong silent type. Sort of a Clint Eastwood with long ears and short legs. As for his human partners, well, they’re OK. It’s really just the one guy who does all the work and then you’ve got your donkey handler dude who probably gets more love because he’s got a really cute partner in this crime against comedy.
This is a pretty simple prank, “Oh, you thought I was talking to you? Why no, of course not.” It’s a simple set up, using just a few words pretty much guaranteed to get a negative reaction from anyone who hears it. The reactions of the ladies standing up for themselves so quickly was awesome but then to watch them realize what was happening behind them was seriously next level funny.
That’s where our silent, but very cute partner comes in. Saving the day without saying a word. Talk about your straight man. And they say that dogs are man’s best friend? Rover is so over.
