PUP’s name has nothing to do with dogs—it stands for “pointless use of potential”—but that didn’t stop the Toronto band from humoring us. In this video, PUP’s members—guitarist Steve Sladkowski, vocalist-guitarist Stefan Babcock, drummer Zack Mykula, and bassist Nestor Chumak—endure a dog-treat taste test. PUP tries both name-brand and artisan snacks, learning that, just because it’s meant for an animal, doesn’t mean the food is always rough.
