Celebrate Shark Week by Watching ‘Shark Cat’ Ride a Robotic Vacuum

Trending Now

You've probably heard of Discovery Channel's Shark Week. In fact, you may be one of the many obsessed viewers. But have you heard of Shark Cat Week? It's real, and it's a favorite online, not unlike other serial cat videos.

The most recent viral Shark Cat Week video starts off with Max-Arthur, the star cat dressed in his shark suit riding around on his iRobot Roomba. He turns. He looks. He bumps into the wall. Doesn't react. Goes out of frame. Re-enters frame. And, it's groundbreaking. Genius, even.

The latest video is just one in a series that began four years ago. In 2008, the cat and his owner tag-teamed another brilliant upload. That time, Max-Arthur in his shark suit (what else?) chases a duck on his iRobot Roomba. TexasGirly1979's dog makes a guest appearance dressed as a hammerhead shark. The video has nearly 3 million views.

YouTube user waxpants comments, "This is why the Internet was invented."

Another commenter on YouTube praises the video's cinematic impact on a larger scale: "When the cat reappears at 0:46 is one of the greatest moments in film."

The people have spoken. The video has over 550,000 views in just two days. Max-Arthur and his owner, YouTube user TexasGirly1979, are among the most beloved in the online cat video world.

Lesson of the day: Let's not take life too seriously.
