Cats can be quite disrespectful in some of the most hilarious ways, but the feline below may have just won the undisputed crown in that field.
Videos of animals and people's pets doing funny or strange things basically rule the internet. Dogs and cats top the charts of course, and when it comes to the former it's is normally something pretty adorable. Pups trying to talk or just acting dopey. When it comes to cats, however, the feline stars seem a lot more disrespectful and manipulative in regards to their time on camera.
We have seen cats pushing things off of tables while looking their owners dead in the eye, and even a clip of one cat pushing another down the stairs. When it comes to cats simply not caring what they're doing on camera, however, we may have just found the cream of the crop as you can see below.
The Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski remained completely unruffled during our interview when this happened👇🤨🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/4dLi16Pq1H— Rudy Bouma (@rudybouma) July 7, 2018
The cat in question, a ginger feline named Lisio, has captured the hearts of the Twitterverse by intruding on his owner's very serious interview. Lisio's human, a political scientist by the name of Jerzy Targalski, was trying to conduct an interview for Dutch news show, Nieuwsuur. Lisio was having none of that though and decided to take a seat on Targalski's shoulder while the interview took place.
The most impressive thing about the clip, and why it went viral after interviewer Rudy Bouma posted it on Twitter, is the non-reaction from Targalski. Despite having Lisio on his shoulder, with the cat's tail in his face, the political scientist continues on with his interview which is actually about a pretty serious topic. Not many people will be aware of anything that was being said though since all eyes were likely on Lisio.
At the time of typing this, the hilarious clip had been viewed more than 751,000 times in less than a week. It feels as though it were a sequel to the BBC news clip that went viral of the man who's children wandered into the room when he was conducting a live interview only for his wife to rush in and bundle them up. Lisio is the undisputed king of news interruption now though and, in a very cat-like fashion, he probably doesn't even care.
