Can you imagine the strange feeling when you actually realize that a dog can be much cooler than you. Want proof? Here’s a video by rnickeymouse that would likely make you practice some decent skateboarding for shame’s sake (or out of inspiration). 🙂
Check out Tillman, a Bulldog with superb, badass skateboarding skills that have earned him an iPhone commercial. That’s definitely impressive, don’t you think? Not all dogs – even humans – can be in a commercial in their lifetime, let alone an iPhone advertisement. Tillman clearly oozes coolness that others actually liken him to Tony Hawk, an inarguably influential skateboarding legend.
Yes, Tillman is the “Tony Hawk” of the dog kingdom. Look at how he flips and rides his skateboard and takes over the street, hoarding a huge amount of attention for himself from a group of co-skateboarders, bicyclists, and passersby! He doesn’t care and just does his thing, even if there are some jealous, awed, or inspired eyes transfixed on him. The video was shot in Venice Beach, California, when Tillman was still a little over a year old.
Bulldogs are mistakenly portrayed in contemporary media as pugnacious, aggressive bullies and the ultimate “cat haters.” I guess most of us can remember Spike from the Tom and Jerry series, which we all had fun watching during our child days. More than anything, Spike disapproves of Tom, the cat, and beats him up when the cat messes up with him for silly reasons. He has a soft spot for Jerry, the mouse, though. This is completely contrary to what bulldogs accurately are. They have a docile and gentle disposition and are protective, friendly, and courageous. Like all dogs, with proper training, a bulldog can be taught to understand basic commands and learn even tricks. Because of Tillman, the skateboarding dog, it becomes crystal clear that we cannot underestimate what dogs can do. They can surprise us in many way… Who knows? Your dog might be the next superstar!
