I keep seeing this kitten with a tiny hat around.

Three free internets to whoever can deliver some sauce and spread.

I’ll look for some other info on it and repost it back later.

Okay cool, I’ve given you editorship on the entry. But do me a favor. DON’T add more videos. There are too many as it is, and there’s no info about the sites that any of them were embedded on.
Remember, the dates, URLs, and views are what reveal the spread. After data on the spread is present, then we can assess whether it went viral because it’s contagious, or just well-promoted.

I think RWJ helped spread the video on youtube. Other than that, I got nothing.

Apparently, the owner of the cat was on Tosh.O.
@Chrismen: Anything I should add to the entry?

Not true! I am the owner of the cat (her name is Scout Jr.) and was not on Tosh.O. RWJ got on this fairly late; we already had nearly a million before he touched it. (I’m proud to say I had no idea who he was before this). It was leamy.tumblr.com that first embedded it, but HuffPo sent it over the top. The slap video going viral was truly a surprise, the other vids (except for the black kitten wearing a tiny hat) were us having fun with its popularity. “Tiny Ice Cream Cone” continues to get embedded fairly often, though we’ve done nothing to promote any of the videos other than putting them on YouTube. Stay tuned for a short music video starring Cut Chemist appearing with the kitten. We’ll see what happens, though I don’t think anything will match the slap clip.

BTW, the slap was not an “audition” for anything. I was joking around in the description about Scout auditioning for the “role” the black kitten got. I later changed the description.
