Japanese man spends thousands of realistic dog costume in hopes of fulfilling life-long dream

A Japanese man, who spent approximately two million yen (approx. €12,800) on his custom-made collie costume to transform himself into a dog, has shared a video of him taking a walk for the first time.

The man, identified only as Toco, wears a hyper-realistic suit in order to realize his lifelong dream of becoming a good boy. We wrote about his plans last year.

His YouTube channel, “I Want To Be An Animal”, has become an online sensation and shows videos of him in the dog costume, rolling on the floor, confusing other canines and just generally being man’s best friend.

His latest video of him stepping out in public for the first time in pooch form has garnered over six million views at the time of writing.

According to Toco, the video was filmed last year during an interview with German TV station RTL. 

“Thankfully, I received permission to use the videos, so I am releasing them to the public!” he wrote in the description of the video.
