YAY the lil bub documentary (Lil Bub & Friendz) by Vice is up online, it's over an hour but it's a great watch, in true Vice style and I'll admit, it had me tear up at the end!
The documentary is not just about lil bub although a lot of it is! What the doco does awesomely is provide an overlook of the internet cat phenomenon and throws in a few internet stars along the way (Nyan Cat + Grumpy Cat + Pudge) as well as some crazy cat people too :)
We get an in depth look into Lil Bub from her beginnings, mobility issues, accidental fame, merchandise, being paparazzi'ed, karating chopping a dog :P (you know that sort of stuff) It also follows Mike's story (lil Bub's owner) his background, charity work, getting a bub tatt and ultimately the bond he shares with bub. Mike mentions at one point that lil bub is a little buddha, and watching the video you cans see bub's amazing cute and zen filled life, which for me, instantly makes her likeable!
At the very start of the doco we get introduced to Jeffrey Bussolini a feline sociologist who brings up the idea that dog owners have spaces like beaches and dog parks to connect at but cat people, until now, have lacked such a space. So all I can say is one big thank to the magic powers of the internet, successfully bringing crazy cat people together all in one space...I love it!
