In the Loop

The Internet continues to blow my mind (part 2)

Posted at 11:55 AM on May 24, 2007 by Sanden Totten

So yesterday, momentarily giving into the baffling trend of talking cats, I posted this video clip.

Later in the day I was pondering how strange the tastes of "the Internet" are. I am constantly amazed at what things catch on in cyberspace and what ends up being a "trend". So on a whim I decided to see if the talking cat from the video I posted had been blogged about by other folks. I took one of the phrases I remember the cat vocalizing, "oh don piano", and searched it in Google.

Cue the sound of my mind being blown by a talking cat.

Not only is the "oh don piano" cat well known, it's all over the web!

It's on t-shirts.

It's a band name.

It plays Darth Vader.

It has even become a catch phrase for movie blogs.

Impressive for some one who is only on record for saying 6 sentences.
