One of my all time favorite memes is actually a fairly new one. The Dog of Wisdom was uploaded to YouTube in July of last year by Unklejoe, who is the creator of the web animation compilation show Great: The Show. The Dog of Wisdom clip was originally part of the show, but it was put on YouTube separately, and thanks to a post on the /r/videos subreddit, the video has now been viewed millions of times.
This is the Dog of Wisdom.
As you can see, it’s not very long and the plot is kind of silly. And yet, there’s something really endearing about it. Amelie and I watch this thing at least once a week now. Usually more.
For my German friends, here’s a version of the Dog of Wisdom with the subtitles translated into Deutsch. (With one notable error; they listed the singer of “Believe It Or Not” as John Scarbury instead of Joey Scarbury.)
What’s your favorite YouTubed meme?
Editor’s Note: I’m attempting to blog every day in November with CheerPeppers. I don’t expect to succeed because life be crazy, but any blogging in excess of my previous post-free month is a win, right?
