There was a time - about 24 hours ago - that we thought that the only thing funnier than the original 'Benton!' video (current YouTube views: 698,725) was The Poke's brilliant spoof 'Benton In London'.

But no! Because another hilarious gem has been created - and it's the video above, made by YouTuber GFazh and brought to our attention once again by The Poke. If you're anything like us, you'll be smiling before it even starts, because you just know what's coming. And then you'll be honking with laughter when it does.

In other Benton News, it turns out that Benton the deer-worrying Labrador isn't called Benton at all - but is, as some suspected, named Fenton.

The man who shot the video, Ali Goodyear, called in to the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show on Absolute Radio this morning to explain how he got the footage - and to clarify that "it's Fenton with an F - not Benton."

"I've been inundated with people from CNN, CBS, Good Morning America, German newspapers," Goodyear told O'Connell. "I don't know what to do - I might get Max Clifford on it!"

You can hear the interview below. In the meantime, a suggestion for Fenton's owner: why not change your dog's name to Benton? He clearly doesn't answer to "Fenton"...
