Pugs. Yeah! Where did you come from? How did we make you? Nobody knows.

These are the opening words of YouTube channel Super Deluxe's new video, Pug Song, and despite everything, they do indeed know the history of pugs and they tell it in the only way the annals of such a magnificent beast should be disseminated: Metal ballad. The video takes no prisoners as it explains the pug's Chinese origins, how cat breeding during the late-14th century through the 17th century nearly led to the disappearance of pugs, and how the Men in Black series is essentially propaganda promoting pug breeding in the United States so that they may one day rule the Earth. Maybe that last bit isn't exactly accurate, but, either way, it's important that you watch the video below.
