Ray Graham's wife, Kerry, says nothing really suprises her anymore / A Current Affair

Thousands of fans on Facebook

"Funniest thing" people have seen

Graham says impression "off the bat"

A SYDNEY man's enthusiastic impression of a barking dog on a current affairs show has gone international with CNN reporting on the viral hit.

Ray Graham, 57, appeared on Channel Nine's ACA on Monday where he spoke about a number of dogs which were terrorising his street in Marsfield, northwest Sydney.

He followed up his concerns with an impression of the dogs that has media blogs and news sites now referring to him as "vicious dog man" and "crazy old man going nuts with a frightening dog impression".

CNN, covering the viral hit, played a recording of Graham to a number of dogs on TV. The dogs appeared scared and backed away from the sound, NewsCore reported.

Various YouTube clips of Graham's canine impersonation have been viewed more than 200,000 times on YouTube.

One clip has been remixed to provide footage of Graham interspersed with the Baha Men song "Who let The Dogs Out?"

Facebook fan pages titled Barking Dog Man from A Current Affair and "Psycho dog man" have sprung up with thousands of people signing up.

Many have labelled it the funniest thing they have ever seen, one called for Graham to be made Australian Prime Minister while others simply said he was "barking mad."

Graham told ACA he was shocked at the reaction and said he had never made animal noises before and the noise came "out of nowhere."

"It was something I've never done before - it was casual, informal, off the bat," he said.

"It was good wasn't it, I just love the way it was done."

But media commentators have been just as intrigued by Graham's wife Kerry's reaction - during the clip she remains emotionless as her performed his dog noises.

"He was just so emotional and it just came out. He is a person who's emotional," she told A Current Affair.

She also said after 34 years of marriage she was used to his personality and nothing really surprised her anymore
