Advice dog is an advice macro (Also regarded as the first ever Advice macro) consisting of a rather innocent-looking dog placed on a multi coloured background. The dog is often captioned with paticulary bad advice.
The meme made its debut on the The Mushroom Kingdom forum thread, entitled 'Guide to Kissing'. The topic consisted of someone practicing for a school play, explaining that they need advice for a kissing scene in one part of the play.User TEM posted a reply consisting of the words 'Just do it... man!' accompanied by this picture:The picture was adored by its viewers, and soon, the thread that was once about kissing advice had now turned into a thread in which people expressed their delight of the image.
Of course, things are not always what they seem, when 4chan users took the image and butchered it into a funny, but menacing context.
The macros grew Immensley popular and many spinoffs have been made, this sparked a new wave of memes known as 'Advice Macros' (Philosiraptor, Y U NO, etc...).
When interviewed, user TEM stated that the original image was of his dog, Boba Fett, with a rather asthetically pleasing smile on its face.
