The Kid Should See This

Vote with Benji

“As a cattle dog, Benji is just the best at communicating and herding,” explains Yoga with Adriene‘s Adriene Mishler.

“He really loves to take naps… but he also really loves to help! He quite enjoys a good task to focus on when it’s time to get to work. He likes to bring people together…”

In Vote with Benji, an animation by Will Rose, Mishler’s dog Benji resists naps and playing with tennis balls to gently remind people that it’s time to vote. Original music by Jason Newman, with story by Mishler and Jeff Mills.
