'Stranger Pugs' May Be The Best Parody of 'Stranger Things' Yet, Starring Doug the Pug
Doug the Pug, one of the most lovable dogs on the internet, stars in an adorable "Stranger Things" parody, aptly titled "Stranger Pugs."
In a video uploaded to the pup's Facebook page, Doug dons the role and costumes of the characters from the hit Netflix show. The beloved pup poses in character as Dustin, Will, Mike and Lucas, sitting around a table playing "Dungeons and Dragons," taking after an iconic scene in the series.
The "Stranger Pugs" parody also featured Eleven and her telekinetic powers, with a crushed Coca-cola can on the table and "wires" made out of pipe cleaners. Doug also wore the easily memorable blue jacket and pink dress, perfectly posing as Eleven with her favorite food, Eggos.
Doug did not miss out on Barb too, as the celebrity pet put on a red curly wig and overly large eyeglasses while standing in a high school hallway.
The Facebook video, which was posted on Sept. 8, immediately went viral. As of press time, it has over 210,000 likes and almost 300,000 shares.
One comment said Doug the Pug's parody is "the best pug thing" she has seen in a while. Another said that the "very good acting" deserves an Oscar award.
Doug the Pug is one of the most famous and beloved celebrity pets on the internet. The 4-year-old dog from Nashville, Tennessee has over 5 million Facebook fans. The pup and his owner are also active on Twitter and Snapchat.
The "Stranger Things" parody was not Doug's first try in comedy though. He has famously recreated the "Friends" television show opening and Justin Bieber's famous Calvin Klein underwear shoot.
HBO's "Game of Thrones" was not something for Doug to miss out on, too.
According to the American Kennel Club, pugs are charming, mischievous and loving pets. They are one of the oldest breeds of dogs, flourishing since before 400 B.C. They require little grooming despite some shedding, and are naturally curious and playful.
