The best YouTube video ever: Man + Dog + Sheep = Art

When I first saw this video I couldn’t believe it was real, but I am told that it is.  I can’t describe it, but here it is, as a Friday treat. Thanks to Matthew Cobb for calling this to my attention.

(Note:  when I lived in the UK one of my favorite television shows was “A Man and His Dog,” which simply showed sheepdog trials with border collies. I was astounded at the way a man and his dog, using only whistles from the guy, could control and direct a flock of sheep. Sadly, the BBC decided to can the show.)

    Jerry, you will be less amused by this comment on what is in fact a viral marketing campaign for Samsung TVs, which appeared on the National Review Online website:

    “No cats were harmed in the making of this video, because cats are completely useless in all such really cool endeavors and so they were left at home to look out the window as history was made.”

    But I guess that’s what you’d expect from the National Review…

    What’s the name of the song that plays at the end? I’m having trouble remembering it right now.

    The song is from one of Beethoven’s symphonies- the 7th I believe (4th movement?)


One Trackback/Pingback

  1. […] Sheepdogs and shepherds who turn sheep into works of art, and video games? I don’t know who deserves more credit here, the dogs, or the shepherds who designed and orchestrated the art. (I do think this should qualify as at least some sort of performance art!) Can anyone scrounge up some more information about these guys? […]
