With the advent of social media, meteoric rises to stardom are all too common — Graziano and Noodle are no exception. The dynamic duo have secured over 2 million viewers on Graziano’s TikTok page, and the hashtag #nobones has over 190 million views on its own (via NPR). Fans of Noodle and followers of his predictions for the day’s vibes have launched him and his owner to stardom, with many sharing their own “no bones” or “bones” day stories on the app.
In fact, Noodle and Graziano have caught the attention of high-profile fans. The governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, used the fact that it was a “bones day” to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche attributed a 6-3 loss to the Washington Capitals to a “no bones day” (via New York Times). Graziano is grateful for the joy he and his dog have been able to bring to the internet, saying that he thinks people “are stressed out” and in need of a “distraction.”
