Not many leading ladies have four legs, lots of hair and, well, dog breath. But that hasn’t stopped Chris Naka from posing alongside office pooch Wrigley in a series of pictures recreating iconic scenes from romantic movies.
Naka, 30, told Today that the fun began when he and his creative coworkers at the Blue Man Group in Chicago decided to use the last few minutes of their lunch break to pose their boss’ dog with him in a scene from Titanic.
And an idea was born.
“Someone printed a bunch of our early pictures, posted them in the green room, and folks from all over the theater started sending emails with movie suggestions,” he said.
Check out some of their funny (and bizarre) pictures below, and see more on Imgur, where the project, Wrigley at the Movies, took off.

Nobody puts Wrigley in a corner! The pooch had no problem doing the lift that Jennifer Grey’s character, Baby, struggled with in 1987’s Dirty Dancing.

Dirty Dancing isn't the only Patrick Swayze romance these two have taken on: Here's their interpretatinos of the famed pottery-making scene with Swayze and co-star Demi Moore in the 1990 romance Ghost.

The two have dabbled in some more contemporary movies, too. Here, Naka gets a smooch from Wrigley in a scene from 2002’s Spider-Man. (The roles were originally played by Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire.) They’ve also recreated moments from The Notebook (2004) and The Hunger Games (2012).
