Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No…it’s a hunchback cat and it’s running amok on YouTube! Earlier this month a hilariously bizarre video of a cat, which I’ve come to refer fondly to as, “The Hunch-cat of Notre Dame”, went viral racking up 6.3 million views in a few short weeks. Just as the viral momentum of that video started to die down, a brand new hunchback cat has made its way onto our viral radar. Are these crazy cats taking over YouTube? I sure hope so!
We featured the original Hunch-cat in our Weekly Dose of WTF earlier this month, but if you haven’t seen it yet you can check it out below. I’ve watched this video at least 50 times and it never fails to bring on the Lolz.
There’s also a pretty ridiculous Thriller mashup of the video, which has gone viral as well, raking in over 224,000 views this month though, if you ask me, nothing compares to the original video!
Today, another cat is going viral for the same wacky walk. “Wacky Walking Cat” has brought in nearly 100,000 views since he hit YouTube on Monday.
What’s your take on this wacky hunchback cat sensation? There have only been two videos so far, but do you think we’ll be seeing more? And if you’ve got a cat…has he ever done this awesome move?
