(VIDEO)The Japanese man who spent a fortune to become a dog has done his first interview in costume

Hey, y’all, it’s Sarah Jensen here, bringing you one of the most intriguing stories I’ve stumbled upon this year, straight from the bustling streets of Tokyo, Japan. Imagine dedicating yourself to an identity so completely that you transform into another being entirely.


Well, that’s precisely what Toco, a man from Japan, did when he decided to become a dog, diving headfirst into an extraordinary life on all fours.

Toco isn’t your average enthusiast. He took his passion a step further by spending a whopping 2 million yen (around $14,000) to morph into his favorite canine breed, a Collie. 

This transformation was made possible through a custom-made dog suit crafted by the skilled hands at Zeppet, a company specializing in model and sculpture creation.

But Toco didn’t stop at just looking the part. He’s embraced the dog lifestyle wholeheartedly, from being walked on a leash down the bustling streets of Tokyo to dining on dog food and frolicking with furry friends at the park.

An Interview That’s Anything But Ordinary

Recently, Toco sat (or rather, laid down) for his very first interview in full dog attire with EFE, one of the world’s leading news agencies. The scene was something out of a surreal tale: Toco, in his dog suit, responding to journalists’ questions through a microphone placed before him. Further footage showcased him wandering the streets, capturing the curiosity and fascination of passersby.

Following this groundbreaking interview, Toco shared that his unique lifestyle choice has sparked a wave of interest, with many reaching out to him expressing their desire to embark on a similar journey. 

“I receive all kinds of messages, and among the positive ones, some tell me they want to do what I’ve done,” he remarked.

A Bark Heard Around the World

Toco’s story is a testament to the lengths some will go to live out their most authentic selves, even if it means becoming a different species altogether. It’s a narrative that challenges our perceptions of identity, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness in the most unconventional of ways.

As Toco continues to navigate life as a Collie, it’s clear his tale is far from over. In a world brimming with stories, his stands out as a reminder of the extraordinary possibilities that lie in the pursuit of one’s passions, no matter how outlandish they may seem.
