'Next Level Cat' Obeys Laws Of Viral Videos: Use Pets

Next Level CatIs it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s ‘Next Level Cat’, a new YouTube video that is spreading like wildfire across Facebook, Twitter and the rest of the Web. The video, which was uploaded to YouTube a mere two days ago and already has over 10,000 views, features a very talented cat, standing majestically on his hind legs. It’s so bizarre you just can’t look away!

The instant success of this video continues to prove the obvious – people love watching videos of animals doing strange things. A dog saying I love you, a cat playing the keyboard, a cat sticking his head under the faucet – all seem to be recipes for viral video success on the web!

As if the video of this cat standing on his hind legs wasn’t funny enough, the maker of ‘Next Level Cat’ added to the hilarity of the clip with the choice of music. The music in the background is Strauss’ Sprach Zarathustra, which you may recognize as the opening theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

This clip has it all – silliness, irony and, of course, an adorable cat! What’s your take on ‘Next Level Cat’?
