Cat Toys Dancing to Ievan Polkka

Stop-motion artist tomosteen went viral a year ago with his dancing cat pen holders, a popular accessory in Japan. He's only collected more of them since, and now has a huge production number featuring them. The wonder of this video is how he manages to get inarticulate figures to shake their booties as if they really have joints. The cats, who only move when tomosteen is away from them, learn a new song and dance from an alien, but it's Ievan Pollkka, a song quite familiar to all of us. The original two cats are joined by others until an entire zoo is dancing!

Absolutely freakin delightful! And the Headbanger Cat makes an appearance too!

That was certainly a lot of work putting it together.
