Music Artist: Superchunk
Synopsis: A cat is fitted with a video camera and then gets into mischief but not the kind you might imagine.
Featured Feline: A white cat with gray and tabby markings is the one fitted with the video camera. Several shots of the cat are included at the beginning and end of the video.
According to the video’s director Whitey McConnaughy, the cat was the “band’s friend’s cat” and didn’t really want to be a video star, hiding away during the shoot.
In one shot the cat sees himself in a mirror in a bar bathroom. The non-acting cat was taken on location for this shot as well and someone made sure no one came in so the cat wouldn’t escape. All of the shots from the cat’s camera point of view were naturally shot with fake whiskers and paws.
Kitty Cameo: There are also several shots of a tortoiseshell cat sitting by the band while they are performing.
Final Mewsings: Cats are more badass than you think!
