This video is going around Facebook and is jaw dropping! Is it serious? What's it for? I did some research and found out!

It's being called a Japanese video, and it kind of is. It's by a Japanese filmmaker for Panasonic, but is in English and stars a California actress. It was made as part of a 10-part series of fitness videos promoting Panasonic during the 2004 Athens Olympics.

The reason it's so weird is it's a parody on Susan Powter and is the EXACT transcript of her first-ever fitness video. The poodles are included because the popular poodle grooming cut looks kind of like ridiculous muscles on a body builder. And yes, the dog heads are CGI.
