Pets Show off Acting Chops in ‘Playing Dead’ Supercut

Subscribe to TheFW on

Our pets are good at tons of things, like getting stuck in jars and sneaking into pictures for awesome photobombs. They possess talents a bunch of other animals would envy. But did you know our four-legged friends are really, really good at playing dead?

Sure it’s an age-old trick, but these days, the game of mock keeling over has been brought to a whole new level of believability by some master fakers. We’re not talking about just any old flop-over. The animals in this supercut have impressive acting skills that would even give Tom Hanks a run for his money! (Did Tom Hanks ever fake dead? Well, Hooch probably did.)

With just a “BANG!,” these dogs and cats dramatically bite the dust, and of course they magically spring back to life right after for a treat. But that’s not necessarily our favorite part– did you know gerbils and dolphins can play dead too?!
