Is it a dog? A mermaid? Chewbacca? Maybe the inspiration is a little of each. This short little viral video is simply mesmerizing. Watch and enjoy as the fur of a majestic Afghan hound-like creature smoothly swirls across the screen—and the pool.
The wildly popular video was created by a Swedish marketing firm as part of an ad campaign for a quickpay service. And, sure, it’s not really an Afghan hound, as we all know dogs don’t swim like this, but it does take its inspiration from the breed.
In other words, it’s just a bit of 3D magic, but the results are pretty amazing.
