Puppies in Superhero Costumes Are Supergirl Melissa Benoist’s Kryptonite

How many puppies can Supergirl hold while flying?

Here’s your daily dose of adorable. Supergirl star Melissa Benoist was recently given the impossible task of answering a few Supergirl trivia questions while being swarmed with a bunch of little puppies dressed up in superhero costumes. She performs admirably, and absolutely does her level best as the puppies crawl and romp around the couch she’s sitting on. In one part of the video, you can see someone putting more puppies onto the couch, because obviously that’s just what you do with a bunch of puppies.

Benoist absolutely loses it, too, when she finds the puppy dressed as Supergirl.

How can your day not be any brighter after this?
