Today is the 10 year anniversary of the first video every uploaded to YouTube. Earlier on CKNW, we honoured this day with a list of the top 10 viral videos, which was posted online and broadcast on air, but something was definitely missing.
It was cats. Cats were missing.
“Me at the Zoo” is the first video ever uploaded to YouTube, and while it features a man at the zoo talking about elephants, none of the internet’s most beloved creature ever make an appearance. In honour of felines everywhere, and in honour of 10 years of viral video culture, we’re going to list the top 10 internet cat videos.
10. The Towel-Perching Cat
9. If I fits, I sits
8. Kittens, inspired by kittens
7. Spilled milk
6. Stalking Cat
5. The kitten DJs who scratch that track better than you ever could
4. Dear Kitten
3. This cat dressed as a shark on a Roomba
2. No no no no cat
1. Keyboard Cat
Was this even a surprise? Keyboard cat reigns as the supreme in internet cat icons, right from the classic turquoise shirt to him triumphantly feeling the music at the end.
