The Ultimate Dog TeaseLast weekend I was introduced to a video called "The Ultimate Dog Tease" by someone who came by my booth at Culture Days.

After taking out my trusty iPhone and booting up the YouTube app, I could see why this video has amassed over 63 million views!

What can The Ultimate Dog Tease teach us?

Andrew Grantham of Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada has taken dubbing to a whole new level with his Talking Animals channel on YouTube.

You may have seen The Ultimate Dog Tease. If you haven't, take a look now:

Grantham's uploads have been watched over 167,165,389 times and The Ultimate Dog Tease has been covered by Good Morning America among other media outlets.

What Can We Learn From All Of This?

Dubbing isn't limited to anime and foreign films...you can pretty much dub over anything! While I was watching, the thought crossed my mind that you could dub over YouTube videos to practice your improvisational skills and develop characters on the fly.

Where To Start?

1. Find a video that you'd like to dub.
2. Watch the video in its entirety to get a feel for characters, timing, etc.
3. Mute the video and start dubbing!

Try Dubbing Over Videos Such As:

๏ Movie Trailers
๏ Cartoons
๏ Newscasts
๏ Speeches
๏ Sports matches
๏ Highlight reels
๏ Talk shows
๏ Music videos
๏ Political debates

Have You Ever Dubbed Before?

If you've dubbed, whether professionally or for fun, be sure to let us know about your experiences and why you enjoy dubbing!

Best wishes,

    Hey that's a funny video! I have a talkative cat with a fine knowledge of history.
    I ask her "Who was the Chairman of China". She always gets it right: Mao.
