      That was hilarious - and other videos on that page from the show were equally good. I think their show is better than the US version!

      It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal.

    Very good ventriloquism. I'm trying to figure out how he got the dog to move it's mouth at the right times. It definitely wasn't the dog talking. Dogs know words - they can't repeat them because of the physical limitations of their vocal chords. So - we know it's a trick. What I'd like to know is exactly how he does it. I watched it a few times but couldn't see how he's cuing the dog to do that.

      It's a fake nose and mouth apparently - muzzle-like - that can be moved by the ventriloquist.

        Thats what I have been thinking, lots of fur to hide that too. I don't think he would last long if he had his jaw wired up to electrodes and was giving it electric shocks to spasm its mouth open and shut. :-)

        The only thing to fear is Lanfear itself.

        Sounds right to me. I know you can train animals to do things like that (in this case open their mouth on cue, but nothing I could think of seemed right -- or really looked it either.

        Good call - I think you just won the cookie.

          I loved the whole clip!

          I could watch it over and over. I thought it was quite funny how excited Simon was thinking the dog actually meowed and sang, haha!
