Truth really is stranger than fiction - and this story proves it!

Tokyo-based YouTuber Toco spent more than R250,000 on a costume designed to make him look like a collie.

Toco posted a video of himself taking his first walk outside on July 21.

In the video, the YouTuber can be seen performing many doggy tricks, like rolling over and giving his paw. 

During the video, other four-legged friends can also be seen approaching Toco, looking quite confused by the sight.

It wasn’t only the dogs who were confused, however, as many social media users also tried to make sense of what they were seeing.

"This is the most bizarre and insane thing I've ever seen," wrote one YouTube user. 

Some also complimented Toco’s effort: "Have to admit. That costume is well made. The face features are amazing."

The Japanese YouTuber first announced his dream of becoming a dog back in April 2022.

"I ordered a costume!" he wrote on Twitter. "Thanks to you, I was able to fulfil my dream of becoming an animal!" 

In an interview with Daily Mail, Toco said that he’s thought about transforming since he could remember. 

"Do you remember your dreams from when you are little? You want to be a hero or a wizard," he continued. "'I remember writing in my grade school graduation book that I wanted to be a dog and walk outside."
