Yes, this is not news. But it's Friday morning, and we could all use a video of a dog that can't contain its excitement seeing its favorite toy come to life.

The video was posted to YouTube by Ben Mesches Thursday. It shows the dog – Jolene – with her favorite toy, a mini Gumby. And then a human, in full Gumby costume comes in. And Jolene loses it.

Someone made a shortened GIF version, posted it to Reddit, and it rocketed to the front page.

So yeah, there's your adorable dog video to perk up your Friday morning. Now get back to work.
