File this under things you didn’t know were missing from your life: “Elf,” the fan-favorite Christmas movie, has been remade entirely with pugs. Yes, pugs star in this video, which has garnered more than 68,000 views in the two days it’s been online.
Narrated by a child named Jackson, pugs in costume run through the story of “Elf’” in about two minutes, from Buddy’s childhood at the North Pole to his eventual miraculous Christmas save. It’s enough to give Will Ferrell a serious run for his money.
Produced by The Pet Collective, a website dedicated to all things pet-related, the video has everything guaranteed to make it a viral hit: puppies, children and Christmas cheer. Check it out in full below.
