A rare close-up shot of Spot

Spot the Dog is a recurring gag/alternate-reality game/resin figurine found in many LoadingReadyRun videos. His appearances are almost entirely for the crew's personal amusement.

Trivia

Spot was originally purchased for some very old, unaired Evil Inc. shorts, produced for as original content for a small high-tech firm. A brief clip of Paul as the head of Evil Inc. from these shorts is included in Jangles and Jones Save Christmas, making that the first official LoadingReadyRun video in which Spot makes an appearance.

After languishing in prop storage for several years, his first true LRR appearance as part of the running gag was in Sick Day. He currently resides in the camera case so he can be surreptitiously inserted into videos at the crew's whim. Some time ago, Matt accidentally broke Spot in a Mazda Miata-related incident. He has since been repaired and has returned to full service.

Spot's conspicuous appearance in Reality Tear led LRR fan Metcarfre to ask the crew about him at a local meetup, thus revealing his placement throughout videos is deliberate.

In the commodoreHUSTLE continuity, Kathleen acquired Spot during The Arms Race from the leftover stock from Arthur B. Borington's Creepy Doll Emporium. Despite this, Graham fails to recognize Spot when Paul finds him at one of the garage sales from Garagellenium.

Spot has no spots.

Desert Bus for Hope

For Desert Bus for Hope 5, Spot was part of the hidden achievement "Dog Catcher," awarded when someone in the chat saw Spot on the Driver Cam. Chat user Anubis169 found Spot wedged between the hangers of two costumes roughly 144 hours and 48 minutes in, approximately 2 hours after he had been placed there. Hints from Graham led the chat to know what to look for.

Dog Catcher was also an achievement for Desert Bus for Hope 6. Spot was visible on the NASA cam roughly four minutes into the run, and the achievement was triggered shortly after that.

From Tally's Twitter

On March 16, 2013, Tally tweeted a picture of Spot after he had been left at her house. James replied that he left his sunglasses there also, and that they would look good on Spot. Then Tally paired Spot with a Creepy Doll.
