In an effort to prove that “everything is better with cute animals,” travel search site Hipmunk has created a video of humans reenacting some of the cutest viral videos starring animals. Humans reenact Dramatic Chipmunk, Maru Loves Boxes, Keyboard Cat, Surprised Kitty, Cat Mom Hugs Baby Kitten, and Sneezing Baby Panda and indeed, these remakes are anything but adorable. They prove their point—everything really is better with cute animals.
What exactly do cute animals have to do with travel? Not much…but Hipmunk is the only travel website that features an adorable little chipmunk mascot and they are exploiting that adorable little chipmunk to the max! The fact that they took the viral video route doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The CTO, “Chief Scientist” and Marketing manager are made up of co-founders and members of the team at reddit, the social news site known for catapulting many a YouTube video to viral fame.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Are there any other popular YouTube animal videos that you’d like to see reenacted by humans? I guess they couldn’t find a human light enough to reenact the Roomba Driver cat.
