So, if you’re like me and spend way too much time on the internet looking at cats and dumb things like memes, you’ve probably seen Nyan Cat.
If you haven’t, then watch this now:
(Warning: Do not open the website and play the video at the same time. I accidentally did this, and it was MADNESS. I thought my brain might explode.)
Here’s the gif that started it all.
I don’t really understand the phenomenon that is Nyan Cat, a poptart cat being propelled through space by a rainbow, but I don’t think it’s one of those things that really can be understood. It’s bizarre, and it makes no sense, but it’s awesome, so who cares?
And when I say phenomenon, it truly is. Nyan Cat is all over the place.
You can find Nyan Cat jewelry at Hey Chickadee.
There’s a t-shirt.
And don’t forget about all the fanart out there.
There’s even a Pusheen Nyan Cat!
Some people have even gone so far as to turn their actual kitties into Nyan Cats.
As a side note, I can’t help but wonder: was Nyan Cat inspired by nyanko?
