The eponymous 'Dancing Hot Dog' iPhone game is the latest extension of Snapchat's absurdly popular filter, which has been the source of both entertainment and confusion among social media users.
Using a phone camera, the filter uses artificial intelligence to superimpose a hilarious dancing hot dog on a user's surroundings. The filter's comical nature has inspired a meme-based culture of jokes, images and most recently, video games that surround this bizarre character. The Snapchat-inspired video game is a simple platform-hopping app game which is reminiscent of 'Flappy Bird,' another iPhone phenomena with a cult-like following.
Just in time for National Hot Dog Day, this hilarious iPhone app speaks to the blossoming Internet culture with a uniquely collective sense of humor. The Dancing Hot Dog iPhone game serves as an example of the potential impacts the Internet and social media can have on corporate capitalization.
