Cat Flushing A Toilet

As far as dreams go, having one of my videos get 1,000,000 hits on YouTube ranks right below going to Florida for Phillie's Spring Training and right above finding a pair of jeans that make my ass look like it did 20 years ago. Right now I have to be content with the 15,500 views we've received for our most popular short film "A Man And A Woman."

But in an effort to achieve my internet goal, I do study other videos that have become viral. Some, like Will Ferrell's "The Landlord" are understandable. Others (like anything by Brookers) are mystifying.

The newest cyber sensation, "Cat Flushing A Toilet" is a text-book example of what a video needs to do to capture the public's fancy. It's brief, has catchy music, cute animals and is both office and family friendly. (We have a problem with the office and family friendly part, apparently.)

Somebody will no doubt make an equally popular short with the parody video "He's A Guy Not Flushing A Toilet."

You beat me to it. It would have been more novel if it showed men flushing the toilet.

How fabulous is this?
I have an ongoing albeit intermittent commentary going on the secret life of my cat Liza Bean Bitey (of the Minneapolis Biteys).
Suzy sent me over to check you out, and I'm glad she did.
I'll be back!

Just try to get this song out of your head!

Thanks Pearl. I'll have to thank my cyber/comedy/real life pal Suzy as well.
