A Rube Goldberg machine, for those of you who don’t know, is a complex machine that uses a number of different systems to complete an otherwise mundane task. If that sounded vague and confusing, that’s because Rude Goldberg machines are really hard to describe. Instead just watch this video of a Rube Goldberg machine featuring adorable dogs!
The device, created as an advertisement for Beneful Brand Dog Food, relies on a number of different dogs doing dog things to complete a circuit. The end goal for the contraption is to release a bunch of tennis balls for all the dogs to play with!
Rube Goldberg machines are notoriously difficult to make work by design, and adding in so many unpredictable variables probably made filming this a nightmare. How many takes did it take for that dog to catch the Frisbee instead of wandering off because he thought he saw a squirrel?
The best section of the machine is the puppies in the red wagon. These four puppies were tasked to, well, be in the wagon and be cute. And they nailed it.
Share this to any dog, or overly-complex machine lover you know. If you know anyone that doesn’t like either of those things, stop being their friend.
