Seems it doesn't take much these days to have a hot viral video but a pet that does something funny.

And so goes a video that's hot on YouTube and being shared around the social Web that features a dog wearing Santa pants that runs down the stairs on its front legs.

It was christmas day so I threw a pair of santa pants on my dog. He was fine walking around but when he ran down the stairs to greet someone, something amazing happened, wrote YouTube user MrPhillypickles in posting the video on Dec. 26.

Since then it has had almost 1.4 million views, and the comments as well as the likes are pouring in.
