You can’t watch the video below and not cringe and put your hands to your mouth and cringe some more as you watch the scene from the elevator camera in horror. But keep watching through the difficult, scary part, because it has a decent ending, and the bulldog is apparently okay.
The guy clearly cares about his dog and was worried sick about him when he (finally!) realized what was going on. But those are some slow reactions. What was going on in his mind? Or did he have a few martinis with lunch? And I wonder whether the bulldog will be wary of elevators after that unsettling business. Imagine it from the poor dog’s perspective. I hope the guy had a wakeup call and will never space out while taking the elevator with his dog again. (If it was even his dog. Yikes, what if he’s the dog walker?!)
BTW, those are some pretty vigilant security cameras. That was some good video editing to get all those perspectives from the same scene. Looks like there’s a budding film editor on the building’s security staff.
(Update – The original was made into a Private video. I scouted around and found this one. I hope it remains public.)
