Horrifying.

If dogs actually did have hands, this is what they'd do 90% of the time.

They do (or at least they used to) do a bit on Sesame Street like this where they'd have some dog headed thing with human hands.

It really creeps me out.

This is the funniest video I have seen in ages, it is the hands and gestures that make it. Bless the dog for waiting somewhat patiently.

If that wasn't so cute, it would be very disturbing.

Horrifying

I am going to go ahead and assume that in your regional dialect "horrifying" means the same thing that "awesome" does in mine.

The dog very nearly gets its eye poked out with a fork. Awesome.

William Wegman's Weimaraners.

Back when I worked at a video store in the mid-'90s, I liked putting William Wegman's weimaraner movies on the video monitors. Some beloved female punk rock icon came into the store and started braying, "What is this? This is horrible! This is so annoying!" And I have hated that punk rock icon ever since then.

As others have mentioned, this is exactly William Wegman's work. I loved this stuff as a kid.

THIS IS SO GOOD

That fork bit was awful--that doesn't even require any thought to know it's not a good idea--but the rest was great. What a nice, patient dog.

There is a very perplexed cat in that kitchen, meowing plaintively.

Managed 4 seconds. Ugh.

Interesting how polarising it is, though.

It's a good camp skit routine for kids too - brushing teeth and so on. Using two humans rather than a human and a dog.

@msjen: bless the dog for not eating all the pretzels at once indeed!

I would love to do something like this with my dog, but trying would be an absolute disaster. I've managed to dress her up* in a hoodie in the past, but getting her to sit on my lap while I fed her would involve a lot of shuffling and jiggling and me getting elbowed in the crotch as she tried to climb out of the hoodie via a sleeve.

Eponysterical!

Thing this dog has likely learned: If they put a red hoodie on me I'm likely to get food in short order.

Observational: That dog has excellent nails.

Bucky,... you've changed so much since the last time I saw you!

Much double. So same. Very copy. Wow

I dissolved into giggles when, after all that (somewhat) graceful wiping of the mouth with the napkin, they use the sweatshirt to clean their hands.
