Things We Saw Today: Disney Creates Dug in Real Life Thanks to a Talking Collar

"I like your grey shirt, tiny human."

The fine folks at Oh My Disney put together one heck of a wonderful video featuring a “real-life Dug” from Pixar’s Up.

Last but 100% not least comes this video from international star musician Brandy. The incredible playful banter between her, Todrick Hall, and Jennifer Lewis in this humorous diva-off is certainly a day brightener. Give it a watch, but be warned: some NSFW language abounds.
