This charmingly goofy video featuring two lionesses and a tigress (the giveaway? See 1:50 in the video…) getting their groove on to Ratatat’s “Wildcat” has racked up almost 900,000 hits on YouTube. Not too bad considering it was made as a throwaway video project for a summer Computer Arts Media class. Shot and edited over a weekend with little more than a handycam and a 20 minute tutorial in Final Cut Pro, the filmmaker wisely embraced her no-budget aesthetic, coupling crude video effects with the feline hijinks. Highlight: the choreographed dance sequence during the breakdown. As Ratatat would say, classic.
