I don’t know who books Stupid Pet Tricks for the Late Show With David Letterman, but there’s at least one great, previously unused candidate out there. At some point, Youtube user Nathan Mazur taught his dog, Ollie, how to let bananas hit him in the nose and catch them on the way down. After awhile, they perfected the trick, and earlier this year, they posted the footage online.

It took awhile for people to discover the greatness, but now that they have, the clip has been racing around the Internet. If you’re looking for a smile, do yourself a favor and check out Mazur and his dog’s bonding feat below…

I’m not really sure if this is gross or not, but it seems like the perfect example of why having a dog is cool. All dogs want to do is hang out and be in on the action. If you’re sitting on the couch, they want to sit next to you. If you’re eating a banana, they want to chow down on half of the banana. They’re the ultimate companions.

Given how many dog people are out there, it’s not a shock people are eating this up. Pun intended. It’s the right length for a successful viral clip, and even better, Mazur nails the tone perfectly, especially with his last understated comment.
