Last year, one of the U.K.'s surprise viral hits of the festive season was a video by Gravity Road for Sainsbury's clothing brand Tu, promoting ts Christmas jumpers. It featured an amateur group of Dad doing the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

This year, the brand has followed up with another piece of seasonal silliness ripe for sharing on social media: dogs playing jingle bells, dressed in the cutest little doggy Christmas sweaters (which really are available at Sainsbury's). At the end of the video, by "Wagging Larry and the Bone Chasers," the tagline says. "Christmas jumpers are here. Also available for humans."

If you've ever wanted to know how dogs can play in a band (or indeed just need to hear the words "cockapoo on lead guitar") have a watch of the behind-the-scenes film too.
