In Hilarious ‘John Wick’ Spoof, The Dog Is Back And Looking For Vengeance
For those familiar with the John Wick franchise, you know that the dapper hitman, played by Keanu Reeves, goes absolutely apeshit in the first movie after his dog Daisy is killed by a group of mobsters.
A recent video project by Rocket Jump decided to flip the script. Rocket Jump is an online entertainment company that dabbles in everything from games, to television, short films and movie trailer spoofs like this one.
In this revision, John Wick is killed and it’s Daisy who goes on a bloody kill-crazy rampage.
There’s ambushes, an exploding dog house, and multiple instances where some unfortunate masked bad guy is capped in the knee. Really, the spoof trailer plays out almost exactly like the original, except that the camera angle is a bit lower, and the close-ups are a lot cuter.
I mean, who doesn’t like dogs brutally killing off scores of bad guys?
The dialogue, which closely mirrors the original movie, makes it even more hilarious, for pretty obvious reasons. Like when the mob boss, whose idiot son set the whole tragedy in motion, explains the problem: "You killed John Wick's dog's human. That human was John Wick."
Well said. Check out the spoof trailer for “Dog Wick” below and see for yourself.

'Agility Prime' sounds like a revolutionary new video streaming service, or a parkour-themed workout regimen, or Transformers-inspired niche porno venture.
But no, it's the name of the Air Force's nascent effort to replace the V-22 Osprey with a militarized flying car — and it's set to take off sooner than you think.

The legendary former Navy SEAL Adm. Bill McRaven said at an event on Wednesday that China's technical and national defense capabilities were quickly approaching — and sometimes surpassing — those of the US, representing what he called a "holy s---" moment for the US.
McRaven, who was the head of Special Operations Command during the 2011 operation on the Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound, said at the Council on Foreign Relations event that "we need to make sure that the American public knows that now is the time to do something" about China's rapid increases in research and developments in technology that threaten US national security.
