Katy Perry recently released her video to her new smash “Dark Horse” featuring Juicy J, but it’s the playful pup that’s got a lot of people talking. He’s a Pomeranian that answers to the name Jiff, and the way he found his way into the star’s production can be credited entirely to Katy’s limo driver.

According to TMZ, while the driver was waiting for the singer after the Grammys last month, he spotted the pooch performing tricks and showing out for a gathering crowd. The driver gets out, pulls out the camera phone and starts recording. He also managed to get the owner’s contact info.

During the ride to Katy’s next location, conversation about what he did while waiting came up. He showed her the recorded video and a week later, a deal was made to include the cute canine in her video!

Major shout out to the chauffeur! If it wasn’t for his eye for talent of a different kind, Jiff would have still been ruffin’ it in the mean streets of Hollywood. No bones about it!
