Remember the song, “Where is My Mind” by The Pixies? Most of us remember the gentle psychedelic oos and ahhs playing during the final scene in the film Fight Club. Now this cult classic is something entirely different. It’s the same song but with goats, cats, foxes and dogs singing the lead vocals and it’s better than ever imagined. Great editing goes a long way and these animals happen to be pretty awesome too. Who wouldn’t want to hear animals singing this masterpiece?

When I first saw this music video, I wanted to meet each and every one of these animals and thank them. Little do they know over a million people have already liked, tweeted, shared and watched this repeatedly. Yeah, it’s that good.
So you may be wondering how I discovered this genius video? Thanks to Slate, this video was put into my life. I never knew how dull was life was before this video. It was made by the Youtube account, Insane Cherry. Man, you certainly are insane Cherry. I mean that in a good way.
I’m hoping this video will spur other Youtube video creators to make videos of dogs singing. What do you think will be next? I’m hoping it’s a Sia song. I can picture it now. A dog howling “I want to swing from the chandelier! From the Chandeleie-eeer!” Wouldn’t that be pure magic?
If you’re not satisfied with this magic video, binge watch Insane Cherry’s Youtube channel. There are several share-worthy videos you’ll love.
If you’re curious how to make your own viral dog video, here are tips and tricks to make your dog a star.
It’s All About Video Selection
Make sure there is a lot of action. The more your dog moves the more interesting the video. The video should also be well shot, lit well and a happy, healthy environment. It should look like your dog lives a happy life. Never post a sad video of your dog in an unkempt backyard. That video will not do well and it might make people sad.
The Story Should Come Naturally
The more you force a story, the quicker viewers will realize you don’t have much to offer. Figure out what your dog might be saying and shape it into a fun or interesting story. This should be fun.
Make Your Voice Natural
If you’re overdubbing a dogs voice, don’t make it too over the top. The more realistic the voice is, the more realistic the character will be. It’s also a fun way to turn your dog into the most human version of himself/herself. If you’re not good at voice over work, skip it and ask a friend. A clear and professional voiceover will give your video a more professional sound and feel. Higher production quality is always key.
Remember the details
Don’t skip over small details. Your audience is smarter than you realize. If you’re creating a video, make sure to cross every “t” and dot every “I”.
