Golden Retriever Puppy Plays Drums in Adorable Video Watched 65M Times

A video of a sleepy golden retriever puppy appearing to play the drums has gone viral online, having already been watched by a staggering 65.4 million people.

In the clip, which was posted to TikTok by Tuckedouttucker—an account dedicated to a young golden retriever named Tucker—we can see a small puppy sitting with his head resting on an upturned metal pan.

A man is positioned behind him on a sofa, with the dog and pan perched on his lap, and he is holding Tucker's legs as a snare drum soundtrack plays.

The puppy's front legs are then lifted up and down to bang the makeshift drum in time with a soundtrack, and it looks as though the pet is skilfully drumming away.

The video is made all the more amusing by the fact that each time the drumming subsides for a brief moment Tucker appears to use the pan as a resting place to try to take a nap; slumping forward and closing his eyes.

Tuckedouttucker captioned the hilarious video, which can be watched here, writing "Tucker was not impressed," alongside a dog face emoji and a paw emoji.

He also added the hashtags: "#goldenretriever #dogsoftiktok #puppy #fypage #goldenretrieverlife #puppiesoftiktok #foryoupage."
