Thomas Edison's Boxing Cats -- The First Viral Kitten Video
As I type this I'm watching The Magic of Melies documentary where I just saw the below 38 seconds of Thomas Edision's Boxing Cats film circa 1894. I'm stunned by the amounts of kitty videos I see on the internet (via friend's facebook pages and the like--I would never! search for one personally...you believe me, right?) and I guess this struck me as the first of its kind. Oh, what a cruel world Edison created!
