Visual effects geniuses Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch of FreddieW skyrocketed to YouTube fame last year with a barrage of awesome videos, filled with guns, violence, blood and gore. Guns, violence, blood and gore are, of course, very popular with the YouTube community. But FreddieW’s most recent video incorporates an even more viral YouTube topic—Cats. ‘Medal of Honor Cat’ not only features guns and violence, but it also features an adorable cat, Mr. Meowmers, dressed in Army fatigues and firing at and killing enemies, from atop a tank.
Medal of Honor Cat has racked up 2.5 million views in three days. Of course, it’s not the only cat video that Freddie has done—back in December of 2009, Freddie uploaded ‘Cats Gone Wild!’ and ‘Real life PUSS IN BOOTS!’ is one of the videos that catapulted the FreddieW channel to YouTube fame back in 2010. However, this time a cat is getting in on the violence and action and the result is, simply put, viral gold!
Check out ‘Medal of Honor Cat’ below and let us know what you think. Do you agree that Freddie Wong and cats are the purr-fect equation for a viral video?
