This was the most horrifying thing I'd seen in a while for the first 30 seconds or so.

Mystery dogfood: A video of skateboarders riding skateboards that have been decorated like dogs, with a side helping of quick camera cuts, some clone stamping, and some MGMT-esque indie rock.

Also, there are puppies.

I enjoyed the special effects, but I didn't get a good sense of what product I'm supposed to buy now.

My dog (like a lot of dogs) hates skateboards/skateboarders with an intense passion. I think if he saw this video he might explode from sheer rage.

I suppose a wipeouts reel is too gruesome to consider.

Not animal abuse but an incredible simulation.

Still, when I was a kid, I had a basset hound who had surprising leaping ability for his breed, which he used to jump onto the laps of unsuspecting visitors. (It was much cuter when he was a 15 pound puppy than a 65 pound fully-grown dawg)

But I could imagine him riding one of the humans in that video. Easy.

Aaaaaawww! Skatebarking!

Seriously, gotta love the concept and the execution is sweet. That took a lot of work.

There's a kennel type place in Berkeley that has a sign that says "Dog and Cat Boarding" and I always imagine this whenever I see it.

It makes me happy.

Ruh roh, the animationists at Cartoon Brew are calling a 15-yard penalty for unoriginality. It seems a month ago they featured a short short animation with the same bright idea... And, yeah, I like the toon better myself.

Not as good as Bonsai Kitten.

It's still safer than catblading, last time I tried that, I ended up unexpectedly on top of the refrigerator, unable to get my feet unstrapped in time to avoid a terrifying wall grind to a window-sill and then through the potted plants and under the bed.

I was bruised and broken for weeks after that particular misadventure.

I suppose a wipeouts reel is too gruesome to consider.

All I could think about were all the wipe out reels where boards get broken in half or some skater gets really annoyed at being unable to or failing a trick and break their boards. =(

When I clicked, I really hoped this contained simulated drowning of people in hundreds of cute puppies.

I have no idea how these people got their dogs wedged their skateboards, or why.
