You don't need to speak Portuguese for this viral clip to make you giggle.

As one TikTok user put it, "Idk how I got here but his reaction is definitely universal."

In the vid, the dog's owner is berating his pouting pooch for putting a hole in his pants.

The dog, named Luna, may be guilty – but it certainly doesn't feel that way.

With ears pulled back and a lowered snout, this doggo looks like a moody teenager who's sulking while getting a firm talking to from a parent, all while refusing to even look at the damaged pants. In the end, Luna flees the scene and all that's missing is the sound of a door slamming shut.

That priceless scene has been viewed more than 8 million times and it's proving a hit with users!

The comments are filled with people expressing hilarity in languages from Portuguese, to Greek and English.

One TikTok user joked, "if i don't move he can't see me," while another captured the feel of the vid: "Dog: I won't answer that question."

But a few others wondered whether Luna might actually feel ashamed, given the finale.

According to veterinarian Dr. Lynn Buzhardt, the answer is probably no. "Pets may not feel a sense of injustice because they don't understand that what they did was wrong," she explains, adding that a pet's posture and behavior "do not indicate guilt or remorse."

Either way, Luna deserves to be forgiven for giving everyone a good laugh!
