Sometimes when you have a dog, you like to do dumb things with them just for laughs. Like Matt Elias who loves two things, throwing cheese and his dog. So he decided to combine the two and throw cheese on his dog. That should have been the end of it, but the video he filmed started a viral sensation. No joke.

Now, everybody is throwing cheese slices onto the backs of their dogs, laughing while the poor pooches wonder why they smell delicious cheese but can't find any. We thought this was such a strange phenomenon, so we just had to have our RTM hosts speak to Matt via Skype to try and understand this hilarious viral trend better.
