Esse é o melhor vídeo de gato na internet

Pelo menos segundo o júri e público votante do primeiro festival de filmes de gatos – Internet Cat Film Festival – criado pela Walker Art Center, de Minneapolis, EUA.

Foram mais de 10 mil vídeos inscritos, com representantes do mundo todo, em categorias como Comédia, Drama, Animação, Musical, etc. Os 79 finalistas foram exibidos ontem, num telão ao ar livre, e você pode assistir todos nessa playlist do YouTube.

Eu não conhecia o Henri, e já virei fã. O gato, que obviamente fala francês (mesmo sendo de Seattle), enfrenta sua vida e donos tediosos com uma paciência aristocrática. Henri tem três diferentes vídeos. O vencedor foi o segundo, acima, publicado em abril desse ano e com mais de 3 milhões de views. Além disso, tem página no Facebook, Twitter e até loja.

Muita gente vai discordar da escolha, mas o legal é que o vídeo do Henri não é apenas um gato fazendo trapalhada. Envolve criatividade, muito bem editada por Will Braden, o servo do gato.
