You would think that dogs would be bad with musical instruments considering they have paws and can’t read music. But this isn’t stopping one Border Collie named Simba from amazing the internet with his impressive musical skills.
Simba’s owner recently posted a video of the dog playing a percussion instrument called glockenspiel. The dog can be seen hitting the instrument’s bars with a mallet placed in his mouth and getting really energetic about it.
“Simba is an enthusiastic percussionist,” Simba’s owner captioned the video, which was viewed 2.6 million times in just a couple of days.
As it turns out, glockenspiel isn’t the only instrument this talented dog can play. After the original video went viral, his owner posted a follow-up clip in which Simba can be seen playing a bongo drum with his paws. And it’s actually an even more impressive sight if you ask us.
Simba is actually not the only talented musician in the family. His sibling, a Springer spaniel named Bonnie, also has very admirable music skills. Bonnie is an expert pianist who apparently has a dream to perform with pop star Elton John one day. We hope that John will take notice of her talent because it would definitely be a cool thing to witness.
