We just discovered that Supergirl’s true kryptonite involves something fuzzy and adorable (and it’s also my kryptonite, too): Puppies! That’s right — recently, MTV decided to give Supergirl‘s Melissa Benoist the *ultimate* challenge, and no, it doesn’t have to do with scaling buildings or saving cities.
The challenge? Melissa had to answer as many Supergirl-related trivia questions in 60 seconds without being distracted by puppies. Oh, and said puppies were swarming her while she was on the couch. Oh, and they were all dressed up like superheroes. So, you know, quite a feat, and an adorable one at that. Like, how can anyone concentrate on ANYTHING when they’re surrounded by such cuteness?
“I don’t think it’s gonna work,” Melissa says at the beginning of the video. And then she sees the puppies and starts to full-on crack up. Like, look at this:
Honestly, Melissa did pretty well in such a difficult situation, TBH. Like, I’d totally just abandon the challenge altogether, leave the couch, and roll on the ground with the puppies. And it looked like she was was juuuust about to do that when she noticed that one of the super adorable pups was dressed up like Supergirl.
At one point, you can see someone behind the scenes picking up the puppies and putting them on the couch with Melissa, and honestly, is there anything better than someone being assigned to the task of surrounding you with puppies? Oh, to be Supergirl.
Check out the video below, and be prepared to be equal parts charmed and jealous. (MTV, can you give us that challenge? Please and thank you.)
