Google play storeDear, Dancing Hot Dog. I hate you.
Snapchat has done it again. It’s created another insanely viral camera filter — and this time it’s so popular it inspired its own unofficial bootleg game (available on iOS and Android).
I’m of course talking about the Snapchat’s footloose weenie, better known as the "dancing hot dog" that’s inspired everyone’s new favorite meme. Nice knowing ya, flower crown and puppy ears!
As the dancing hot dog continues to take over the internet, some evil geniuses (who have hidden their identities in both the Google Play Store and App Store) have taken it upon themselves to make it a silly, unofficial game — and it’s ridiculously hard. Like Flappy Bird-level difficult. It’s driving me nuts.
The game is simply called Dancing Hotdog! and has no affiliation with Snapchat as far as we can tell. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s in violation of Snapchat’s intellectual property and gets removed from all app stores, but whatever. For now, it’s available for download and super addictive.
Like Flappy Bird, which took the world by storm in 2014, Dancing Hotdog! looks easy on the surface… until you actually try to play the damn thing. You end up just wanting to rage quit and fling your phone at wall because a stupid basic AF game keeps kicking your ass.
You probably know the feeling. And if you don’t, go download it and you’ll soon the understand why this game is the work of the devil.
And yet, I can’t stop playing it. Since it was brought to my attention this morning, I have been sneaking in runs every few minutes. Don’t tell my editor.
It’s been a complete waste of my time, and I keep coming back for more. To be honest, I can’t even make it past 12 percent on the first level. I can’t even keep count of all the F-bombs I’ve said under my breath. Stupid freakin’ hot dog. Ugh.
My final thoughts on this platformer: Eff this game. Seriously, eff it to heck and its stupid spikes you’re supposed to jump over. Eff its laggy jumps. Eff Its cheesy music. Eff the stupid mustard bottles you have to collect. And oh, god, eff its horrible, terrible ads that get in the way of everything.
I haven’t hated an iPhone game this much since Flappy Bird, and I’m sad to report I’ll be playing more of it later today.
