This is, almost certainly, the most clever way to keep dogs out of the cab of your car. At least until they jump out at a stoplight.

"LAMERS"??? (1:07)

ianwissman said...

That's it, I'm running away from my family and work to live in Branson.

Victor Serge said...

Does something happen when you turn 65, where watching two dogs pretend to take a vacation is suddenly amusing? Like I needed more reasons to fear mortality.

This is why we can't have nice things.

CHACHOwantaFANTA said...

How many different costumes do you think those dogs have worn over the course of their lives?

Kyle said...

"Branson, MO is like Las Vegas, if it were run by Ned Flanders."

Been there once with my dear-sweet grandmother. The aforementioned quote sums it up pretty well.

They have one of Dolly Parton's "Dixie Stampede" shows there, which is basically "Medieval Times" with ten tons of suck.

And it's home to none other than Yakov Smirnoff!

John said...

I had a really creepy Starlight Express moment there.

Precious wanted to end it all at 2:40

When the alien overlords arrive, and decide if we are to be treated as allies or cattle - Sweet Jesus I hope they do not see this.

Fat 'n Boring said...

@Victor Serge: I believe so. It's the same thing that happens which causes chimps in people clothes to suddenly become funny, too. (especially if said chimp is dressed as a train conductor) Bonus points if the aforementioned animals are featured on "The Lawrence Welk Show".

I was really expecting* the little yellow dog car to get pulverized by a tour bus during the "idling at the intersection" scene.

*hoping

The way Mr. unidentified voice of "Harold the Dog" introduces himself at the start of the video kills me. Sounds like a fat 57 year old man calling a customer complaint hotline.

Monkey Lee said...

I am constantly amazed by these videos.

What was this video even for? where was it found? Who made it?

what screws with my mind is how many hundreds of hours of film there are lying around waiting to be found

Ebelch said...

This video wouldn't be that bad if the dogs where gooey ducks and the whole thing was seen through The Predator's thermal imaging helmet.

simon said...

That there is super fucked up.

Destination A Go-Go said...

I bookin' two nights at the Shoji Tabuchi Theater.
Thanks Branson!!


welcome back Yonder :)

Ravenhallow said...

Welp, I sho am glad them dogs ain't livin in sin.

SLWest said...

I know some day this feeling will pass, but right now, I'm checking this site every day.

When you realize your hopes and dreams have passed you by, you travel to Branson so you can die.

mcsandwich said...

Branson is truly hell on earth and the Mecca of all things terrible. That said, I will never get enough of these Branson videos.

kenan.h. said...

that was the worst thing ive seen yet

I've been to Branson. It's really not that bad. The biggest surprise was that it had more hills than San Fransisco.

Monkey Lee said...

and its fitting Branson that should have so many hills,
since the people who visit Branson are all "over the hill."

J-Dubb said...

Why are they calling the chamber of commerce to tell them they want to go to Branson? Why would anybody do such a thing? Why am I analyzing this horror?

J-Dubb said...

And why is it that their last name is "Dog" and they're from "Dogville"? Do you ever hear of humans with the last name "Human" from "Humanville"?

cub said...

''...and they're from "Dogville"? ''
--b/c the filmmakers haven't heard of lars von trier.

but they most assuredly have heard of david lynch by the looks of this-- or could something be this sentimentally creepy by accident?

Bluestockings31 said...

All the cool Shitzus party in Branson.

Voracious_Boot said...

The only thought I have is how senior citizen Shitzus afforded a vacation. A) They are dogs.
B) If they made any money, they must be at this point on a fixed income.
C) If they could afford it, there wasn't enough complaining about lack of money, which may explain the broke-down car.
D) Tour buses cost a lot too, dontcha know?

(Used to work for a call center and old people angered me to the end of all reason.)

Evan Prodromou said...

@Bjornin' http://www.golamers.com/ Go Lamers!

zeekthegeek said...

Anyone else creeped out by the group of old people (one of whom appears to have minor psychic abilities in regards to shitzus) just sitting there, commenting on what a pair of dogs are doing. And that they consider it a noteworthy feat that the dogs are going to get their car washed?

Boy life in Branson sure is wild.

John Zak said...

As I am typing this, I am still waiting for it to be over. I don't think I have waited this long for anything.

Chris said...

The next year they went to China for vacation...

They have not been seen since.

Duke said...

Now I have to question the street legality of that dogmobile. What with the lack of headlights entirely.
