But only for a few hours. FX yanked the clip from YouTube on “copyright grounds” — which is a shame, because it’s kind of awesome.
A remake of an Australian series of the same name, “Wilfred” follows a suicidal man (Wood), who finds new life through a friendship with his neighbor’s dog, Wilfred (played by Jason Gann, who originated the role in the Australian version). To the world, Wilfred is a dog. But to Wood, he’s a surly Australian man in a dog suit.
After showing Wood’s attempt at taking his own life, and his multiple suicide note revisions, the trailer shows various dog activities — belly scratching, licking, car-chasing — seen through Wood’s eyes.
It’s all very funny and should help settle fan fears that tend to accompany remakes, but now it’s gone. And you can’t watch it.
