Meet Riley, a full-blood Heeler who has stolen the hearts of Twitter users with his take on Britney Spears’ iconic hit, “Toxic.” The pup let out a squeal that mimics the song’s main instrumental line in a video captured by his owner. He even manages to stay in key.
Since the video was posted on July 20, the adorable clip has amassed over four million views and 400,000 likes. In response to the tweet, several fans have taken it upon themselves to sync Riley’s gorgeous singing up with the original song and the results are uncanny.
