T-Pain took the title for his single “It’s My Dog Birthday” quite literally for its music video. Although the song itself is about Teddy Pain celebrating his dog – as in his homie, his boy, his ace, his friend – on his birthday in grand ratchet fashion, the visual instead features actual dogs – as in canines – in a fun, super-cute clip.
The contrast of T-Pain singing lyrics like, “We gon’ do whatever we want / Poppin’ bottles, takin’ shots of Patrón,” and detailing a wild night out set against the festive backdrop of numerous dogs in party hats and surrounded by balloons, party favors and doggie toys is quite comical. T-Pain is joined by a few video models who play with the well-behaved pooches while he mans the grill and chills with some furry friends. Fan-submitted footage of real-life dogs and their humans is included throughout in between scenes of the canine celebration.
“It’s My Dog Birthday” is the latest single and video from T-Pain’s 1UP, his surprise album which he released in February on the same day that he won season one of The Masked Singer. Press play to watch the rapper-turnt-singer turn up with man’s best friend.
