Possibly in bad taste, but very funny
Director Jerry Kernion stars in this short film as a homeless man. Towards the beginning of the film, he's out by a dumpster with a dog. When a very odd family sees them there, they take great pity...on the dog. As you see them leaving with the dog in order to give it a good home, the homeless man imagines what life would be like if he let the family adopt him as their pet! In a long montage of stupid but funny scenes, you see the man acting just like a dog and enjoying a much better life....but, of course, there is a catch!
The film was very cleverly written and I am sure that some might be offended by the idea of a hobo behaving like a dog, though the film could also be seen as social commentary about the way we treat people as opposed to animals. I just liked it because I liked seeing the family taking their new pet for a walk!
