Sittin' on the Dock of the Bray: Man Serenades Sanctuary Donkeys With Otis Redding Classic

The co-founder of an animal sanctuary in Marengo, Ohio, serenaded a herd of donkeys with a remarkable parody of Otis Redding’s hit song, (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay.

In the footage, Dean Fagan is seen sitting on a couch, surrounded by donkeys, as he sings, changing the song’s lyrics to refer to — and apparently entertain — the animals around him.
