So, we’ve all been slightly obsessed with the fact that Michaela Pace’s ‘Chameleon’ music video reached over five million views in the month since it was uploaded. But another Maltese superstar, Shiro the Shiba Inu, has sneakily raked up a whopping 4.3 million views in just 10 days.
The video ‘Daddo got mom very A M G E R Y’ reached 3,000,000 views within the first 24 hours
It’s been climbing steadily since, earning the channel over 58,000 new subscribers in the span of a week. Oh, and if you need a translation for the title, it’s “Dad made mom angry” in internet dog lingo.
The video documents daddy dog Shiro trying to get used to the fact that he’s going to be surrounded by little puppers at all times; even when he’s eating. At one point, he gets a bit angry (or is it amgery?) at one of the little ones, and mummy Suki steps in to protecc her babies.
The dogs, Shiro and Suki, and their young pups (or potats as owner Oliver Tabone calls them) have been stealing the hearts of internet users for a while now.
They also recently became the first Maltese pets to be awarded a Silver Play Button from YouTube.
“It still feels surreal,” Oliver told Lovin Malta of the latest days as the YouTube account’s admin. “YouTube is suggesting my videos left, right and centre, and that’s meant a sudden increase in views on my channel.”
