“I saw a commercial for an above-ground pool,” the late, great comic Mitch Hedberg said. “It was 30 seconds long, because that’s the maximum amount of time you can picture yourself having fun in an above-ground pool.”
That isn’t the case for inflatable pools, though, especially not when this dog is involved. In this hilarious video, uploaded to YouTube by America’s Funniest Home Videos, two kids try to outsmart the family dog by hiding under an empty inflatable pool in their yard.
“Where are they?” the woman filming asks. “Go get them!”
The dog does exactly that (good boy!) by sneaking under the pool where they were hiding — and then promptly running off with it. While the family pet runs around, wearing the pool as an oversized accessory, the pool appears to be flying around the yard on its own.
Funny as it is, the best part of this clip is imagining what the neighbors might think if they happened to be staring out their windows at that exact moment: “Honey, I think the Johnsons’ pool is haunted. Call the realtor.” That’s another 30 seconds of fun, right there!
