A five-minute-long Indiana Jones remake starring an extremely adventurous dog has debuted online, and Raiders Of The Lost Bark may rank as one of the best parody interpretations of the iconic film.
According to io9, Raiders Of The Lost Bark was produced and directed by Zach King and Jadon Gauthier. Starring a boxer puppy named Indiana Bones, the remake sees the titular character facing off against “Catzi” kittens instead of the original film’s Nazi villains as Neatorama points out.
When his owner goes out for coffee, Indiana Bones sets off on his own adventure. Grabbing an iconic hat and bullwhip, the boxer soon finds himself in front of a duct taped temple door. Swinging across an intimidating pit after spying a dangerous arrow, Indiana Jones’ canine avatar seeks out a golden bone in place of an idol. A familiar trap sends him running, narrowly making it back across the pit before he outruns a duct tape boulder. According to the video’s description on YouTube, duct tape was an integral part of the filming process.
“When his owner Zach leaves for the afternoon, little Indiana Bones discovers adventure in search of his lost bark. This video was created with 3 rolls of duct tape, 108 glue sticks, 18 large boxes of cardboard, a few all nighters with an adorable puppy.”
No sooner has Indiana Bones escaped the temple, than he spies a group of kittens stealing a golden ark, loading it into the back of a truck. Setting off in pursuit, the dog distracts his enemies with a red ball of string, stealing their vehicle. Not to be outdone, the kittens pursue him with both an airplane and a tank, landing a lucky shot that tips the truck and leaves Indiana Bones in any dog’s least favorite position: caged.

Opening the ark goes no better for the kittens than for Nazis, and within moments, the ghostly spirits of a pack of dogs vanquish Indy’s captors as he breaks free. His faithful biplane brings Indiana Bones home just before his owner, who returns with coffee to find his dog curled up on the couch, seemingly where he left him. Only the plane in the backyard hints that his canine companion may lead a double life.
Fans have created other, most elaborate remakes of the first Indiana Jones film as the Inquisitr previously reported. It is safe to say, however, that a few rolls of duct tape and an irresistible fedora-wearing dog have allowed King and Gauthier to create one of the most entertaining Indiana Jones parodies on the internet.
