This Old Dog

An MC Escher inspi­red melo­dra­ma star­ring a fur­ry; This Old Dog beg­ins in outer space on top of a car bed with the prot­ago­nist, a pug who­se nose is made of a sin­ging Mac Demar­co. Tog­e­ther, we rapidly approach a flat Earth and then into a house that con­ta­ins ano­ther ver­si­on of our­sel­ves. The world slow­ly crum­bles after the­se two ver­si­ons col­l­i­de and we are forced to quick­ly des­cend into esca­pism. The new rea­li­ty we find on the other side is one we can con­trol like Harold and The Pur­ple Crayon.
