Every once in a while, a video crosses your path that changes how you view the world and makes you question the fundamentals of what you thought was true. Such a video is the above trailer for a 12-part CGI adaptation of the manga known, in the US, as APOCALYPSE MEOW, formerly published by ADV. In the rest of the world, it is known as CAT SHIT ONE. If you are not familiar with the series, we BEG YOU, just watch the video. The less you know going in, the better, but perhaps we can entice you with the phrase “Waltz with Bashir meets Kung Fu Panda.”
Have you watched it? Good! Now, it turns out that this trailer is not really a trailer, merely a teaser to raise funding for this PROPOSED series.
Please, to all of you reading this…this is crucial! If there is one cause which must unite the world — rich, poor, man, woman, black, white, Canadian — it is not global warming, not economic recovery, not eradicating rogue nation states. No, it is GETTING THIS CARTOON MADE! Please, please, please! Give, give, give until it bleeds …we’ve GOT to make this happen! We will be setting up a lemonade stand to raise money when the weather is a little nicer, and we implore everyone reading this to do the same. Together, we can make the world a better place, a place where cats kill bunnies in CGI slo mo.
