Australian motorcross champion is destroyed after posting video in which he is launched into the air with his DOG named Rooga on board – but not everything is what it seems
- Jarryd McNeil was shocked when he seemed to be launching his dog on huge jumps
- He quickly pointed out that the stunts were fake and that many were not convinced
- McNeil then posted a follow-up video with his real and replica stuffed dog
An Australian motocross champion has made thousands of horrific in a viral video in which his dog is a passenger on some dangerous stunts.
Jarryd McNeil, 28, has one Instagram video on Friday where the X Games champion showed off high jumps and air tricks that made the Australian a superstar – but this time he had a passenger.
The video was filmed at the Freestyle MX park in Queensland and had the caption: & # 39; If your dog wants to ride … take him & # 39 ;.
The video quickly became viral.
The motorcyclist has his dog Rooga invited on board, who likes to accompany McNeil on the bike, places his paws on the handlebars and sits on the bike.
McNeil then drives his dirt bike to a slope, launches the pair into the air and kicks his bike to the side in a series of air tricks.
The video ends with the Rooga getting off the bike, apparently unaffected by the events.
The convincing video made many commentators concerned about the well-being of the dog, but the champion rider quickly pointed out that the video was fake.

& # 39; Animal abuse pending, & # 39; a commentator said before McNeil replied: & # 39; I can't wait to hand them the stuffed animal when they appear at my door & # 39;
Despite his comments, it seemed that many were still not convinced that the video was fake, so the motocross rider placed a follow-up video to set the record straight.
McNeil can be seen with an akubra with his dog Rooga under one arm and a cuddle replica made by manufacturer Cuddle Clones under the other.
& # 39; We have a fake dog, Roogo 2.0 from Cuddle Clones, and we have Rooga the real dog that comes with me every day – he doesn't jump, this guy jumps, & # 39; he said, gesturing at the real and fake dogs.
The often convincing video made many commentators concerned about the well-being of the dog, but the champion rider quickly pointed out that the video was fake
& # 39; But I'm telling you, don't try this at home, don't do this with a real dog. & # 39;
& # 39; I would not endanger myself and I would not endanger Rooga, so only for you – fake dog, real dog, & # 39; McNeil said.
Many thought it was unnecessary for McNeil to post the explanation, but some said differently.
& # 39; Thanks for the clarification … my wife was not happy, & # 39; a man said.
& # 39; There was a common thread on (website) with people who though you jumped with your real dog, & # 39; another added.
