In 2010, A Current Affair ran a news story about a group of vicious dogs that were terrorizing a Marsfield (northwest Sydney, Australia) neighbourhood. In one interview, Ray Graham, a resident of the neighbourhood, gave a particularly enthusiastic impersonation of the crazed dogs, and Youtube history was born. Now known as the “Psycho Barking Old Man”, the video of Graham quickly went viral and racked up over 800,000 views! Naturally, this means that there were many, many remixes made out of the clip. Perhaps the most appropriate is this mashup with the Baha Men song “Who Let The Dogs Out”:
Unlike some of the victims of Youtube remixing, Graham actually did a few follow-up interviews talking about his sudden internet fame! Here’s a clip from an Australian daytime talk show in which Graham talks about the viral video:
Look under the cut for more remixed barking!
