The most famous faces of feline Internet celebrity star in the “Cat Summer” music video above. (All but our music-loving friend Lil Bub.) Grumpy Cat, Nala Cat, and Hamilton the Hipster Cat, plus Oskar the Blind Cat and his housemate Klaus, are the unusual model/actors booked for this clip set at a sizzling summer BBQ and shared by Rolling Stone, who had had Grumpy star in their own mean-mugging vine.
These Kardashians of kittydom take no prisoners at the soirée. The song takes their point of view over an indie-pop ditty that wouldn’t sound entirely out of place as a Tegan and Sara B-side: “Well too bad if we are in the way / It’s a cat summer! / Messin’ you as we play / Feline frolic every day.” True to form, though, their senses are ultimately overwhelmed by the smells of human food: “The salmon and the steak, almost too much to take!”
While these cats may not reap the fruits of the grill, sponsor Friskies will donate one meal to a cat in need for every view the video racks up, up to 1 million and until Labor Day. They’ve teamed with Rescue Bank, a non-profit organization providing donated food to non-profit animal welfare organizations, and their last viral charity video, “Hard to Be a Cat at Christmas,” amounted to 600,000 meals for hungry kitties.
