The 'Jesus Christ, Fenton' Video Is Now 10 Years Old

It's been ten years since we all saw Fenton refusing to obey his owner's commands in Richmond Park, creating one of the biggest viral videos of the decade. Check it out:

Yep, believe it or not a decade has passed since we heard 'Oh Jesus Christ, Fentooooon' for the very first time and although much has happened since then, the clip is still pretty bloody hilarious.

Fenton the Labrador became an overnight sensation after a clip of him ignoring owner Max Findlay and chasing some red deer in Richmond Park first made its way online.

It was filmed by 13-year-old Jake Goodyear, from Holloway in North London, who was out in the park with his dad Ali when he spotted Findlay and Fenton.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Goodyear explained: "We were filming the deer and all of a sudden this man came from behind us and was agitated to say the least because he had lost control of his dog.

"The dog chased after the deer and I think the owner feared he would never see his pet again.

"The deer scattered everywhere and went across the road. The dog then disappeared into the woods. At the time we thought it was really funny."

After the clip went viral, Goodyear said he had been 'inundated' with interview requests from across the globe and joked that he was considering getting himself a PR guru to help out.

However, speaking back in December 2011, Findlay told the Daily Mail he was keen to 'move on' from the whole thing - sorry, mate.

He said: "I don't really want to add anything to the zillions of words already out there. I'd rather just leave the story where it is and move on."

An unnamed pal of Findlay told the news outlet: "Max is mortified. Fenton's a lively dog, but he'd never done this before.

"Max won't be taking him back to Richmond Park any time soon and is considering giving him a new name if the fuss goes on."

The funny clip spawned countless spin-offs and parodies, including a bizarre Jurassic Park inspired video.

According to the Sun, Fenton was initially set to be a guide dog but was branded as an 'unsuitable' candidate by Guide Dogs for the Blind - I mean, I think we can see why.
