When you look into the bucket, the bucket also looks into you. (Thanks for the tip, werttrew.)
That’s no bucket, that’s an ofuro.
Also, I’ve done studies, and 75% of cat videos online are from Japan.
I can’t tell if he’s a zen master or pissed and humiliated that he’s in a bucket with a bib (?) on his head
I think he’s on the nod.
I was struggling with that too…this kitten-bucket video is whatever you think it should be. Like Gabe said, “When you look into the bucket, the bucket also looks into you.” Deep thoughts! Enjoyable thoughts…because I’d rather be thinking deep thoughts while looking at kittens than looking at graveyards or whatever.
I saw the title of this post and it sounded grotesque so I was like:
Then I watched the video and it was adorable so I was like:
If you think that that cat isn’t plotting it’s owner’s demise by smothering them while they sleep, then brother, you don’t know cats.
That cat makes me so sad. He obviously wanted bubbles! What happened to his bubbles?
My god, how defeated the cat looks. “You won okay?! I’m submerged in water! You’ve put a washcloth on my head, and now you’re filming this. I… I just hope the emotional scarring will be slight…”
And, you know, the thing about a kitten… he’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’.
I am pretty sure that bucket is filled with his tears.
It’s probably best that they deleted this scene of hilarious misunderstanding from The Bucket List. It really undermined Morgan Freeman’s reputation as a wise old man.
Pfsh! I’ve never (NEVER!) spent hours (HOURS!) in the tub looking very similar… to this very sad cat…
Nope. Not once.
“Dear Kittens in Buckets,
We are sorry.
Sorry for considering you as mere ornamental playthings. Sorry for degrading you with washcloth hats and squeaky rubber toys. You are proud descendants of mighty jungle cats, and we apologize for objectifying you for our own petty whims. Furthermore….”
(apology continues for 8 more minutes)
in summary d’awwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I do not want to ruin it for anyone who has not read the book, but that cat reminded me an awful lot of the narrator in this:
(SPOILER ALERT! It turns out he was in a bucket the whole time. Also, the bucket was a dream)
Cliched aphorisms aside, I am going to judge this book by its cover and say that I am 100% certain that I will NEVER read this book. So go ahead and spoil away.
It is actually a great book. I am not just saying that because I am a 30-something lady with cats. (Cries). Maybe you would read it if you could find this edition?
It might be a great book, but I don’t think I could ever bring myself to read it. It’s not really the cover so much as the title. It’s the same way I would never read books entitled “I Am A Dragon,” “I Am A Vampire,” “I Am A Vampire Dragon,” or “I Am A Fluffer.” They could all be excellent books, but I’ll never know.
Well, I would read a book titled, “I Am a Vampire Dragon Fluffer.” Only because I’m a sucker for that genre.
There is a bit of nuance lost in the English translation of the title. The Japanese is “Wagahai wa Neko de aru,” which is a very erudite way of saying “I am a cat.” The irony is that the cat thinks very highly of itself (as if a socialite) but is merely a nameless cat. It’s actually a great work of social critique. #puttingmyBAtoworkgum
Well, dag, I was going to say that the Japanese title was “I Am a Vampire Dragon Fluffer and also Facetaco,” but you just stole my thunder.
Actually, I stand corrected. I didn’t take into consideration the full-blown English translation, which has a much more appealing title:
I need to enunciate more clearly, because when I called to put the book on special order I ended up with this:
**“I Am A Fluffer.”**
The book sucked, but you might really enjoy the movie. I’d suggest watching it alone, though.
This is a great book! Soseki is the best!
I am really, really, really sad because I have read so very much so much Japanese literature (pretty much all I read for a year or so) but I haven’t read this because German literature slipped in and took over my life (for well over a year). I want to have such a discussion about such things!
haf to keep nucler kitteh cool, or else japan in big trubble
That’s it, you’re fired! I just can’t ignore your culturally insensitive comments. Starting next week, we will be having auditions to see who will be taking over as Polythene Pam.
I signed in a few hours ago to thank Gabe for NOT saying ‘Kitteh” and then i took a nap and was obviously too late. I dreamed like i was in a fast and furious movie.
M Night Shamalayan twist: I love this video. No one saw that coming.
Does that mean that he who fights kittens should take care, lest he become a kitten? If so, how can I fight kittens without being a terrible person? Oh, the quandaries!
This is the image of a soul finally crushed.
No walrus joke yet?
At my workplace, the word “bucket” is used as some kind of sales/marketing/unicorn factory term, and any time someone says it in a meeting I am compelled to draw the lorus’ bucket. (I am not a skilled enough artist to draw the lorus himself).
Argh, I didn’t have time to do this earlier, but I have to post it even if it’s unfashionably late.
I think what is best about this video is its pacing. 2:35 of a cat in a bucket with a washcloth hat, and then the last 10 seconds are all action.
What I don’t understand is why the cameraperson isn’t smooching this cats pink nosey? Like… it’s right there.
I always read this as FUCK I AM YOU CAT
Did someone already “something, something dripping wet pussy” ?
Or are we all still just thinking it and pretending we’re better than that?
Uh, yeah, the rest of us are “pretending” we’re better than that.
i couldn’t watch to the end–i got way too scared.
I used to be against cat baths until I had a cat with dingleberries. Now, I can’t say enough about cat baths.
I can’t figure out if that kitten has creepy black-virus X-Files Tunguska eyes, or whether the Japanese have genetically engineered their kittens to be cuter than ours.
