Barking Dog Steals The Show During DJ’s New York City Street Performance

Musician and DJ Marc Rebillet is a master of improvisation, so when a dog wouldn’t stop barking during an NYC performance, he knew just what to do. He brought the noisy pooch forward and made him part of the show! After recording a few of the animal’s barks, he ingeniously worked them into his beat. Everyone loved how he turned an untimely interruption into a clever audience participation moment!

One audience member caught some hilarious footage from the DJ’s NYC performance featuring a particularly vocal dog. In the clip, the owner was holding his pup up to the microphone so that Rebillet could record his barks. Honestly, the beat turned out pretty cool!

“@Marc Rebillet love finding you throughout NYC!” wrote the user in their caption. “This was a very unique experience! Love your passion for the music. The dog was a solo artist lol.”

Commenters thought the footage of the DJ inviting the dog to participate in his NYC street performance was way too funny.

“If this was my dog I would never stop talking about this,” one person wrote.

Another joked, “I’m telling my dog this was Coachella.”

“Imagine how confused the dog was hearing it after,” added a third.

Did you know that cute animals make every musical performance 100% better?

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a street performer bring in a four-legged musician. A viral Reddit video shows a band playing a song called “Learn to Meow” for a rapt audience. However, one of their members is not like the others — they’re a ginger cat!

Much like the dog during the DJ’s performance in NYC, this cat also had to be held up to the microphone by a human. However, this kitty seemed to have learned their lines beforehand, because they were able to meow on cue!

We can learn two very important lessons from Marc Rebillet’s performance featuring a four-legged friend. First of all, sometimes obstacles are just opportunities in disguise. Second, seeing animals singing into microphones is the cutest thing ever!
