"These radioactive puppies have proliferated in the wilds of nuclear fallout, and are profiled in the above documentary 'Puppies of Chernobyl' by filmmaker Drew Scanlon, who happens to also be the guy in the Blinking White Guy meme.

In addition to gifting the world one of the most beloved reaction gifs of all time, Scanlon is producing a travel series called Cloth Map, which led him to meet some of Chernobyl's estimated 900 stray dogs."
