On July 21st, Matt Hardin was filming his dog, Riley, howl at an approaching storm, when he noticed that there was something oddly familiar about the pup’s wail. After listening a few more times, Hardin realized Riley was basically howling “Toxic’s” instrumental hook.
"At first I thought he was just howling at the storm that was rolling through, but when I rewatched the video, I noticed that the sound he was making was oddly familiar," Hardin told Teen Vogue. "After watching it like 30 times, I actually said out loud, 'Oh my God, Riley, were you just singing 'Toxic?!' and then I proceeded to freak out. He looked at me sideways at first, then jumped in my lap."
Is it just me or does Riley sound like he’s singing toxic by Britney Spears? pic.twitter.com/XT4us4ERYD— matt (@matthardn) July 21, 2018
