Everyone loves the iconic Star Wars theme song conducted by John Williams. But this legendary piece of music has its fans in the animal kingdom, as one video proves. An unnamed pooch was captured howling and barking along to the opening crawl of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And it might just be the best video you see today.
The video was posted on the Planet of Dogs Youtube Channel this weekend. The pooch sees the iconic title card pop-up on screen followed by John Williams' legendary music, and he just can't contain himself. To say Star Wars is universally beloved would be an understatement.
Unfortunately, this dog is currently remaining anonymous at the moment. Perhaps to avoid any paparazzi or autograph seekers that might pop up in the next few days during the canine's 5 minutes of Internet fame. It also isn't clear how long ago this happened, though we know it's been since Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit Blu-ray and VOD.
Star Wars is notorious for turning its fans into superstars. Earlier this year, Chewbacca Mom found herself in a whirlwind of attention after she posted a viral video of herself infectiously laughing along as she tried on a Chewbacca mask she bought at the Kohl's Department store. Will Star Wars Dog garner the same type of attention?
It's too late to have this video included in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens collector's edition Blu-ray, as that just hit stores over the past few weeks. The first-ever Star Wars spin-off is coming to theaters next month, with Rogue One set to open on December 16. And then we're getting Star Wars 8 around Christmastime 2017. While we anxiously await the next chapters in this sprawling fantasy, let's take a moment and laugh at just how catchy that opening theme has remained for the past forty years.
