Paramount Turning Talking Dog YouTube Video into Feature Film

In the pantheon of bad movie ideas, this one's got to rank up near the top.

Paramount is planning on taking that viral talking dog video and turning it into a feature length movie. You know, the one that has generated over 94 million views since it was posted last May. Ultimate Dog Tease went on to become the second most-viewed YouTube video of 2011.
 
Working through its low-budget production house Insurge, Paramount has inked writers Alec Berg and David Mandel (they wrote the upcoming Sacha Baron Cohen comedy The Dictator).
 
For now, watch the original video below and then ponder how they can stretch this into an 80-90 minute feature film.
