Who doesn’t love videos of dogs? Dogs are such happy animals that watching videos of them is sure to lift your spirits immediately.
When their owners get involved in the video fun it can quickly escalate the entertainment. One dog and owner duo have become viral for their lip sync videos – and we can’t get enough!
Casper is the dog behind the videos which he creates with the help of his owner, Ryan. Ryan first began filming videos of the dog moving his mouth. This quickly escalated to Ryan enhancing the videos with human voices. And the results are hilarious!
Sometimes Casper’s buddies, Daisy and Bernie, will also be guest stars in his lip sync videos. All these ideas come from Ryan, who is a 32-year-old probation officer living in Stafford.

He first got into the video-making after boredom during quarantine drove him to TikTok. Since then, he has been creating content that charms the masses.
He’s even created little characters for the pets to play, with Casper often cast as the gullible dog and Daisy as the smart dog. Ryan explained his casting choices to WalesOnline, saying, “The reason I played Casper as wet behind the ears, and Daisy the clever streetwise one is because that is the complete opposite in real life. Casper is insanely intelligent. Daisy, not so much. But she’s adorable, and she does sprint around and she gets the zoomies.”
He further explained that he got into TikTok after both he, and his wife Kristen, were furloughed following the lockdown. He shared that the two of them were rather bored. That is when Ryan figured now is as good a time as any to try and make a video. His first one happened to be of Casper digging up their backyard and it turned into an immediate hit.
The video of Casper digging up their back garden gained over 1.8 million views and hundreds of thousands of likes. This spurred him on to create more.
Ryan decided that he wanted to create videos with sound effects in them because he thought they’d be more entertaining, and he was right. His videos have gone viral – something he is quite proud of given the fact that he puts a lot of time and effort into making them.
It turned out that his quarantine pastime turned into quite the burgeoning new career.
Since he set up his TikTok last September, he’s managed to write two children’s books – both with sold out in the span of 40 minutes. He’s also managed to create custom ringtones as well.
As Ryan stated to WalesOnline, “So loads of people were asking me to do them. I thought you know what, I’ll just do them. And I upload them to the site for 99p each. And they’re just selling, selling selling.”
Casper is on Instagram and TikTok under the username, @Casp47.
