A dog’s dramatic fall after accidentally being kicked out of bed has the internet in hysterics, with the video amassing more than 23 million views.
The pet-cam footage was shared by TikTok user Gianna (@giannalippmann), after her sister-in-law Marissa, 23, sent her the hilarious clip.
Recorded during the middle of the night, the video shows Marissa and her husband Michael, 31, sleeping. Their dogs Zeus and Breus are lying on the end of the bed by their feet.
As Marissa turns over, she accidentally dislodges Breus. The French bulldog begins to barrel roll, turning several times before falling off the bed with a confused look on his face. The footage quickly went viral, receiving more than 3 million likes.

76 Percent of Dog Owners Let Their Pet Sleep on the Bed
According to a recent survey by Veterinarians.org, 76 percent of more than 1,000 American dog owners polled allow their pet to sleep on their bed at night. Just over two-thirds (67 percent) said sharing a bed with their pet reduced their anxiety and stress levels, while 59 percent replied it lessened feelings of loneliness. Just over half (53 percent) said it made them feel safer, with 51 percent saying it strengthens the bond with their pet.
Breus lives in Fresno with his owners Michael and Marissa, as well as his 7-year-old rescue-dog brother Zeus, a pit-bull mix.

The dogs sleep with their owners every night, with Breus usually resting under the covers or curled up in one of their arms.
“Breus fell off the bed, which has never happened [before],” Marissa told Newsweek.
“They sleep with us every single night. We just recently got a king-size bed because the last one wasn’t big enough, but they still take up 80 percent of the space.”
Breus and Zeus have free range of the house while the couple are out, so pet cams are essential.
“I’m surprised we even caught it on camera,” Marissa said. “We didn’t think it was funny until I showed my sisters and sister-in-law, and they all insisted it was hilarious.

“[They said] it should be posted on TikTok,” Marissa said. “I still felt horrible for rolling him off, so Gianna posted it and it got a ton of attention.”
Luckily, the fall doesn’t seem to have phased Breus, as the bulldog was up and about immediately after landing.
“Breus is wild and thinks he’s Zeus’s size, so he tries doing big-dog things,” Marissa said.
“We have always been aware of the common injuries with Frenchies and are extremely paranoid, but he is clumsy,” his owner added.
