Man branded ‘creepy’ after spending £12.5k to fulfil ambition to become a dog
A Japanese man has been labelled as "creepy and "scary" after spending £12,500 to fulfil a life-long dream of becoming a dog.
The male, who goes by the name Toko-San, transformed himself using the ultra-realistic collie costume making international headlines and receiving online fame.
"I was able to fulfil my dream of becoming an animal,” he proudly wrote on his Twitter account.
Since getting his new four-legged look last month, Toko-San has launched a YouTube channel showing off tricks such as fetch and playing ping pong with a paw.
Each of Toko-San's seven videos show him playing a different game or rolling over on command as he fully channels his inner dog.
In one of his first clips he explains via a clipboard: "I became a rough collie because I wanted to be an animal. From now on I'm thinking of uploading videos at my own pace.
"Please let me know your request for the video you would like to see in the comments!"
Taking the costume out in public was suggested as a fan asked: "Please walk down the street wearing that while someone films you. I need to see people's reaction especially if you start talking."

Not everyone has taken the invitation to leave such requests, though, as dozens of comments tend to say the same thing.
One person wrote: "Thats scary af, I'm sorry"
"This is so creepy," another said.
Others, however, have applauded the man-dog for living out his dream.
