Earlier this month, a video of a Japanese dog went viral when the owner filmed it running down the side of an irrigation canal. Its cuteness, plus the fact that it had kind of an angled gait, quickly garnered it a crap-ton of views. Of course, it wasn’t long before the Initial D comparisons emerged.

It was only a matter of time before someone added manga-style action lines and a eurobeat soundtrack.

The Japanese dog — a Hachiko-roku, if you will — is now famous, with over 6 million at the latest count. Does it care? Of course not, it is a dog. Hope all you have a weekend as good as this pup’s outing at the canal.
