Dog Newscasters Are the Best Newscasters

You know, this is kind of like doge meets the evening news.

In Japan, 7-Eleven’s banking service, fittingly called Seven Bank, has a series of short ads starring a dog-in-a-suit with the punny name, Shibao Inuyama.

The spots might be for a credit card loan, but it kinda reminds me of that serious Japanese news show that has a cat.
