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.
