A US pet adoption agency has released its own version of Mark Ronson’s catchy hit.

The “Oaktown Pup” parody features a range of adorable, homeless dogs and is designed to encourage adoption and help them find their forever homes.

Watch it here:

The staff at the shelter clearly have a sense of humour and look like they’re having a blast, as do the super cute pups featured in the clip.

If this video doesn’t make you want to adopt a pound puppy of your own, you have a cold dead heart. Let’s hope the video works and these pooches get adopted, stat.

2. Five-year-old recreates famous Bruce Lee scene.

Ryusei is five years old, lives in Japan, and is a BIG Bruce Lee fan.

And now, a video of the impossibly cute kid recreating a famous Bruce Lee scene has gone viral – for good reason.

In the clip, he recreates a scene from Lee’s martial arts movie, Game of Death. He wears a mini yellow tracksuit to match his idol and knows his way around nunchuks better than Lee himself.

Check out the video and see for yourself. We definitely don’t want to miss with that little guy any time soon.

3. A man sees the colour of his childrens’ eyes for the first time ever.

This will get you right in the feels.

Opie Hughes was born with a form of colour vision deficiency, which meant he was never able to see colours the way most people do. Until now.

Recently, he got hold of a special pair of glasses which allowed him to finally see colours correctly.

And when he saw the colour of his kids’ eyes for the first time? Things got emotional. Nawww.

He told Upworthy:

“It was like finally seeing a painting finished that you had looked at for 30 years unfinished…The whole experience as seen in the video is more the culmination of everything going on between the excitement, the environment, the nervousness, and the actual effect of the glasses. The actual effect was still pretty amazing, and the best part is they only get better as your eyes adjust.”
