Doggy Poo the Movie

Every so often a character enters the realm of popular culture and quickly becomes unforgettable ... an instant classic. This is the story of nature's most unlikely hero ... Doggy Poo!

Yes, a real film spotted by Neatorama reader Bethany Tackett who wrote:

Doggy Poo is a real movie. My husband and I found and watched it on Netflix as a "free" movie download for Netflix members. It's 36 minutes of weirdness. It's a stop motion movie created in Korea. There are two versions of the movie (Korean spoken language with english subtitles or dubbed English language).

Here's the Netflix review:

This charmingly eccentric cartoon from Korea features a little mound of dog poo on a quest to find meaning and purpose in his life. Left all alone on the side of the road and feeling abandoned and helpless, he believes his life is without value. Luckily, the despondent poo is befriended by a dandelion sprite who helps him recognize his worth.

This is the stupidest "movie" I have ever seen--I can't watch more than a few minutes of the thing; it's that dreadful (although the animation isn't bad). However, I understand its origins, because my youngest daughter taught English in South Korea for 5 1/2 years and told me about their obsession with . . . well, basically . . . feces. Too odd! Three little girls of my acquaintance love "Doggy Poo," though, and their parents are not very happy that my friend actually gave them the DVD. It cracks him up. He loves stuff like that!

You would not believe how many "poo" books you'll find in a S. Korean bookstore...they could almost have their own section. I actually brought the original book of "doggy poo" home with me, the art work is wonderpoo.

And yes, Koreans have a thing for ddong (as they call it). Korean kids play a game called ddong jim which consists of waiting for an unsuspecting friend to turn around (and maybe, if you're lucky, bend over). Both fists are clasped--as if in prayer--and the two index fingers extended together. Then you jab the index fingers as near as you can figure to the friend's rectum and cry "Ddong Jim!". Boy, is it a hoot. I try playing with people here in America and they don't find it so funny...

That's called "fisting" in North America. It's a whole other type of fetish.

This was just a commercial for a movie. Not so neat as one might think.
