ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
(via BB Submitterator, thanks Antinous!)
one of my cats fell off my lap last night. i think i’ll get him to watch the video so that he can understand how easy his life is
some of these are cg (oddly enough the less impressive ones). they’re from a cat food add, it’s for iamms or something like that
i presume you’re referring to the ones toward the end, with the orange tabby?
Yes, I would assume that the orange cat at the very beginning and the orange cat near the end are from the same CG’d commercial. The shot at the beginning of the cat jumping down and the other cats on its “team” running to follow didn’t look like cat behavior at all.
The other scenes, however, are great.
“Sweetheart, what shall we have for dinner? There’s salmon, lamb, and ohhhhhh look! We have some chicken!”
“The salmon sounds good!”
“You’re getting soup, asshole! I’m talking to the cat!”
There are so many freerunning/parkour videos out there now, I can’t figure out how to find the very early one this vid is based on. I recall that they used the same song.. any ideas?
And no, free-running is not parkour..
Thanks for the link!
My dumb & clumsy cat can do the wall-running trick. She also tries to climb the doorjamb, but only gets to head level or so before she slides down, scratching the paint.
The smart & nimble one never does anything cool.
Tune reminds of buck 65 463.
Brain the size of a walnut.
Ah! French rap! Hard-hitting yet cat appropriate.
That was a really kewl cat video, it’s all like “This video contains music from Sony Music International, and is blocked in your country due to copyright”, and I’m like meow meow WTF?
All that agility and they can poop without human assistance, too!
Anyone else find it ironic that that gawd-awful crap background music makes the video unavailable in certain countries?
Some cats are amazingly acrobatic. Some cats are hopeless klutzes.
As for brains- my cats have a cozy home full of cat toys and tuna every day, but I’m the one going off to work in the morning. Maybe if my brain were the size of a walnut…
LOL, Prince of Persia @ 1:20
this is why cats will be infinitely cooler than dogs :)
The white cat is performing my cat’s version of Parkour. All designed to get head scratches. (Despite the offering of the tummy, she still just wants her head scratched.)
and I may be in Canada, but posting here is an Iran/China experience as I must hide my IP to post….only since a month or so now
Last scene is totally adorable, haven’t AWE’d in a long time.
umm… the cool kids call it freerunning. Either way, its just as retarded when cats do it. :P
No, the “cool kids” do not call it freerunning. Those are the nerds. Freerunning was overtaken years ago by parkour, the far more cool term.
OMG was there CARPET on those walls? <3
” Carpet on the walls” They got the idea from Get Him to the Greek.
“This Video includes Content of Sony Music Entertainment…” and thus has been blocked in my country.
Well, thanks a lot, Sony Music Entertainment, I’ll be sure to give you lots and lots of money now that I can’t watch this video of a cat on the internet. [/sarcasm]
That did it for me ;)
Thanks, that worked for me, too. :D
Hey thanks. This sony crap is so fucking annyoing. Seriously.
Also that “Protestsong” is awesome! :D
F*** you Sony Music Entertainment

Does anyone know who the artist is? The music, not the cinematographer. Danka!
Dj Cut Killer, 3e Oeil, according to one YT commenter.
My mom’s cats can’t even attempt to do this because they’re de-clawed (not my call, so don’t grief me).
However, I don’t think they could do it with claws. Two of them have trouble navigating a TV tray without knocking it over.
freaking NINJA CATS MAN! They are taking over the world!! AGHGHHHHH
