Check me out, dawg! I'm animated and rapping for a really good cause...
In this first video from his new web series, Super Doggies, Oscar winning animator, Eugene Yelchin, teams me (Bo Obama dog) with Vladmir Putin’s pup, Buffy, and Abby, the best fur-friend of Imani, a girl living in a poor neighborhood in Johannesburg, South Africa, to bring attention to the global issue of youth poverty.
Look closely and you'll see Pops (President Obama) bustin' a move too!
"The Super Doggies are ‘good citizens’ who want to bring attention to the issue of poverty and work with local communities to highlight their plight," the series' website states. "Super Doggies’s citizenship principles are founded on the conviction that the arts, business and social initiatives can, together, contribute to making a better world."
The site also says that Super Doggies will begin a world tour in 2013! "The spectacular show, brings together the Super Doggies, performing ‘live on stage in breath taking and realistic 3D holographic projections, local dance talent, musicians, magicians, acrobats and performers from all over the world. Through this medium the Super Doggies will take the audience on a heart-warming journey and adventure as they face and overcome social challenges making the world a better place for children."
