AUSTIN — A team of students at the University of Texas know what it takes to make a viral video.
The communications students recruited Dudley, a Labrador retriever, to star in their class assignment. The video shows Dudley going through his morning routine, from waking up to his iPhone to eating breakfast at the table.
The students were challenged to promote their "Ruff Dog Day" video online to get as many views as possible. They were hoping for at least 1,000 views. So far, the video has more than 1.4 million.
