Prank videos and dog videos are two of the most powerful forces on the internet.
Knowing this, it should come as no surprise that the newest viral challenge on Twitter is a prank people are playing on their pooches called the #InvisibleChallenge.
The rules of the challenge are simple: owners place a sheet of plastic wrap over a door then get their dogs to chase them.
While the owners know to jump over the wrap, the dogs are, understandably, a little more confused by it.
This is the best challenge ever pic.twitter.com/l5bngFIgDF

Cats claimed they would do better (though we all know otherwise).
Silly canines, so easily fooled by such a simple trick. Defeating this obstacle is so obviously simple: claw the crap out of the couch, the human comes running, forgets about the plastic, trips on it, falls through it, and then you can continue on your way.

There were many humans online who felt their precious dogs didn’t deserve such harsh treatment.
STOP DOING THIS TO YOUR DOGS! YOU MONSTERS!
