    It’s “Confuse-A-Human”

  2. Witteveen says:

    Probably is asking for food & ho’s, making it slightly better than your average R&B video…

  3. Clumpy says:

    I KNEW it! I KNEW it was Cyriak! This individual is a certified genius.

  4. flwombat says:

    That look *precisely* like my cat. I tried to get her to watch, but she was not at all interested.

  5. zikman says:

    oh man. what just happened?

    Basement cats galore.

    What especially touched my heart about this video is I have two cats almost like that! ‘Cept kinda inverse, because I have a tiny tabby and a big black cat named Mr. Sushi — he’s very vocal and loves to give headbutts. Here’s Uni and me dancing:

    What also helped this video was that the musical arrangement wasn’t generic techno; despite the prevalence of electronic instruments, it got into some odd dissonance and diminished areas, and triumphs as a result.

    The black kitteh looks an awful lot like my alpha, non-theiving kitteh.

    Now given all the interesting responses from home kittehs, I’m thinking I need to replay this for alpha when I get home to see if she boogies like the others.

  9. ablebody says:

    my cat, who usually does exactly what this video does to me all day, suddenly got quiet and stared at the computer screen in abject horror.

  10. Baldhead says:

    I must disagree with many here. that was aweful. Like the sort of thing a late- 80′s homemade rap video might have.

  11. VagabondAstronomer says:

    My beloved Peachy (resident Euclidean tabby) suddenly looked up from his nap, walked on over to the desk, looked at the speakers, looked at me, this “what the hell is going on here?” look on his face…

  12. Quint X says:

    I made it a whole 23 seconds.

    Aaa, my brain!

    LOLSD ???

  15. dove says:

    This was totally fucking with my cat’s mind.

  16. freshacconci says:

    Is there a black cat theme today on boingboing?

  17. sbarnes2 says:

    My dog was mesmerized by this video. He thanks you, and wonders how the cats got into my computer. “Show yourselves, evil felines!” (translated from Barkanese)

  18. technogeek says:

    What absolutely makes this vid is the detail work — the head bob in particular.

  19. dubzee says:

    I love you Cyriak! Please never stop being weird!

    meowth rock

  21. dannotdan says:

    This is probably why Schroedinger used cats in his experiments.

  22. JonnyAnchovy says:

    the organ reminds me of Mr Bungle and the early 90s

  23. dculberson says:

    My cat wigged out too. Especially when the flames started coming from the kitty’s eyes.

  24. crwatson21 says:

    @#5 ditto.

  25. erindipity says:

    ♥ kitteh ditty

  26. jessemoya says:

    Well, there goes my chances of having a peaceful night’s sleep.

  27. franko says:

    my (black!) cat was sleeping on my lap when i started this vid, and upon the first MEOW, he started up and looked around like he’d been poked with a needle. he lasted about 3 more meows in the room before he bolted, all the while looking around wildly. i couldn’t hold him longer than that. WHAT IS IN THAT VIDEO?

  28. Stefan Jones says:

    My dog heard that and ran out on the balcony to look for her evil nemesis cat.

  29. MelSkunk says:

    @technogeek: I didn’t even notice and had to replay.. nice!

    I honestly expected to be disappointed, with some sort of “jingle cats” style audio remix. But this is truly awesome. I’ll have to watch it sometime when I’m already in an altered headspace. (from lack of sleep, internet police…)

    YES! I knew right from the start that had to be Cyriak. That guy’s a twisted nut. :)

  31. endymion says:

    Definitely the best cat internet video I’ve ever seen.

    Love the 6/8 middle-section.

    Holy crap. My cat is so fascinated by this that I cannot even distract him with kitty treats. He is still looking for the musical cat. He seems to get more worried as more cats are added to the mix, so I just play him the beginning. I am trying to think of a way to use this new power, to somehow apply it to make our lives better. It will take some time, I think.

  33. Manny says:

    They should have called this “Trying To Sleep In”.

  34. debg says:

    It started a riot in my multi-cat household. Everybody started tearing around the living room, flipping out. With 7 cats, that’s a lot of angst.
