Today's post is about cats and theremins.
For those of you unfamiliar with the theremin - it's one of the first electronic instruments ever created. It's also one of the first (and still one of the few) instruments that requires no physical contact in order to play it. The theremin has a particularly weird sound to it - sort of like a singing electric ghost. (If you're still confused, watch a few seconds of this.)
You are probably familiar with cats. I won't go there.
Anyway, two clips. Here's a video of a cat playing a theremin. I'm not sure why, but I found it hilarious.
Clip two: a man playing the theremin with a cat. What's happening in the video isn't really funny (in fact, it's kind of mean to that cat), but the man in this video manages to be both frightening and awkward in a mildly entertaining way.
That last clip becomes ten times more surreal if you watch it without sound.
