A golden retriever is planning a little prank in a TikTok video. He successfully puts his plan into practice and inspires millions of users.
A recent TikTok video has taken the internet by storm and inspired millions of users worldwide. The clip from @conigliaro12 shows a playful golden retriever who plans and purposefully performs a surprising and funny prank on his human companion.
From a leisurely splash in the water to a chase on land
In the video, a young man observes the swimming dog. The four-legged friend splashes comfortably in the water. A short time later, the dog first walks relaxed towards the land and focuses on the young man. The tension rises when the two-legged friend sees that the dog is coming out of the water and starts running towards him. The young man quickly starts running as well. A chase begins, while the person filming is already laughing into his fist with glee.

The Golden Retriever pursues the man to the terrace. When he arrives, the good-humoured and at the same time soaking wet dog shakes out his fur vigorously. The young man turns away protectively, so as not to get too wet, and curses to himself. In the video description, it is said that the teasing dog had "planned the attack 100 percent" – and, according to one user, "knew exactly what he wanted to do".
