Toko from Japan has posted a video on YouTube showing him performing dog tricks and “eating from a dog bowl”.
Toko had spent £12,500 to transform into a rough collie, and regularly posts snippets of his new dog-like life to his channel, “I Want To Be An Animal”.
The introductory video shows him stating, “I became a rough collie because I wanted to be an animal.
From now on, I’m thinking of uploading videos at my own pace.”
In the more recent video, Toko eats fake wooden dog food shaped like bones while performing dog tricks such as shaking hands.
His transformation has gained him 23,700 followers on YouTube alone.
Toko has become a sensation on social media by fulfilling a childhood dream to become an animal.
His transformation, costing £12,500, has allowed him to live as a rough collie and post regular updates on his life as a dog.
Despite the novelty of Toko’s transformation, his videos are gaining popularity, with one attracting 346,000 views.
While some may find it bizarre or strange, Toko’s transformation is a unique way of living out one’s fantasies, and has gained him thousands of followers.
