Raiders Of The Lost Ark: The adorable puppies and kittens version

If you ever have one of those existential dilemmas where you simply can’t decide between a rousing, Nazi-filled adventure movie or YouTube videos of adorable puppies and kittens, filmmaker Zach King of FinalCutKing has a solution for you: Raiders Of The Lost Bark.

The video, according to King, “was created with three rolls of duct tape, 108 glue sticks, 18 large boxes of cardboard, [and] a few all nighters with an adorable puppy.” That puppy is King’s own pooch Indiana, who has over 90,000 followers for his Instagram account. The five-minute clip features remade scenes from the classic action flick, including the giant rolling boulder (made of lots and lots of tape), a biplane chase, the famous dive-under-the-door, and an ark filled with ghost dogs. And, of course, kittens, who are clearly the only animals capable of playing heart-meltingly cute Nazis. There’s also a quick reference to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off built into the storyline, with little Indy racing home after his adventures before his owner can catch him being a canine archaeologist-adventurer. It’s pretty damn adorable and probably the best reenactment of an action movie featuring house pets you’ll see today, unless there’s a Romancing The Stone parody starring a Weimaraner and a raspy-voiced parrot out there.
