Why were these so funny? It wasnt because of the awful fake accent, that is for sure.

THought about narrator's (creator's) "accent". I bet it's put on. I know my accents pretty well, and besides, only a fully culturally American (with the full enchantment in place) would even have such a completely dumb idea as to mumble on and on disingenuously about the aesthetic implication of there being a dog standing a few feet away staring (lovingly, of course, as all dogs do). The whole time, that phony accent drove me away. To Mwhybark: I say it's only half an "AWESOME" because it's half ruined by that idiot. If he were not yakking with his foolish accent I'd say 100%, since I love dogs.

That is a Good dog, though. Good BOY. *treathug*

This is the advantage of having English as a second language. Noone fakes an accent badly enough for me to notice.

Who is "Noone"; sounds like a pretty cool guy.
Otherwise, I perhaps don't get what you were trying to say about my hilarious comment. That your own??? English is a second-language? Thus, you can't tell when a dummed down American is trying something with language that his poor enchanted brain is not equipped for?
If so, you are lucky, then, my newly arrived potential Uh-merruh-kuhn. (I wish I really knew IPA well enough to transcribe the sound the poor savage native speakers make when they try to say that word. It's part of life here, now: the enchantees can't handle more than about 3 vowels: uh, err, aww.) So, Harald, if you're from let's say England or Italy, do me proud and keep a nice repertoire of about 15-20 vowels. (We'll work on consonants later.)

OK, Jessamyn. I won't say any more here.

The poor dog acts like a German or Swiss dog. No enthusiasm and strong obedience. At least, in the first two episodes. Not interested enough to view further.

Dude yells at his dog for no reason. That's a dick move.

Sounds like the guy is channeling Group X [songs in the videos nsfw].

If he had picked anything other than a Borat variation, these would be really funny. As it stands, they're kind of funny I guess?

Yazi, I'm not sure why, but I seem to really have rubbed you the wrong way with my comment. So, I'll clarify: English is not my native language; I learned it in school. I meant English as my second language. So my point was that I happily fail to notice Australians pretending to be American, Americans pretending to be Irish or any other fake accent a native speaker decides to attempt. So I'm able to enjoy otherwise good movies where fake accents annoy you natives.

Oh yeah -- sorry about that missing space in "no one".

Alas. [oh! for goodness sake]

Dude gets high, videotapes himself talking to his dog? Lemme check again... yep.

Flagged as being the stupidest thing I have ever seen on MetaFilter. And I say that as someone who is very easily entertained by dogs.

That is the Saddest Dog in the Entire World.

And he's trapped forever in the Saddest Video Series in the Entire World.

And I am the Saddest Metafilter User in the Entire World because I clicked on the first link and looked into the Saddest Dog's eyes and knew I could do nothing other than stop looking.

Saddest Dog in the World, one day you'll be free of the mad peer pressure of the Internet, and you and I can romp on the fine, fine sands of Afterlife Beach after we both shuffle off this mortal coil.

Dog looks like me during my worst bouts of depression.

If I had him I'd prescribe a high dose of Petting XR™, Extra Strength Hugs Supplement™, and a daily regimen of playing in the backyard.

Dog + Camera = YouTube

It's based on the LoLCat Differential Equation

I have mixed feelings about this. The dog is inside, well fed, well taken care of - has a bone, gets treats and affection. But you shouldn't make fun of your dog, man. They know.
