Recently, young Garrett Johnson’s parents headed off on a week-long cruise vacation — leaving him in charge of the house and the family’s beloved little dog, Oscar.As his mom stepped out the door, she told Garrett one last time to take good care of the pup, as they’d never been away so long.Turns out, she really had nothing to worry about. Oscar was in good (and very creative) hands.
To put his parents’ minds at ease while on their trip, Garrett decided to direct a little video showing the good times he and Oscar were having in their absence. The idea for a homespun comedy came to him spontaneously, aware from the start that he had the best costar by his side.”Oscar is the funniest dog I know,” Garrett told The Dodo.Here’s the adorable clip they filmed together to send to Garrett’s parents:
Garrett’s parents may have been the ones on vacation, but the most fun was clearly being had back at home. His mom, especially, couldn’t get enough of the hilarious video update.”She thought it was super funny and said she cried laughing,” Garrett said.But Garrett’s mom wasn’t the only one.
After being posted to Twitter, Garrett and Oscar’s short buddy film has since been viewed tens of thousands times — proving that even strangers appreciated the sweet update meant just for Garrett’s folks.”It’s blown me away,” he said. “I only had 70 followers, so I was just posting it for my friends. This is unreal.”The camera may have stopped rolling, but the good times between Oscar and Garrett haven’t slowed down in the house with just them two.”We’re chilling and just hanging out ’til [my parents] come back,” he said. “Life is good.”
