In case you haven't seen it (which if you are reading this, is highly unlikely), the premise behind the latest viral cat video, "Walking for Kisses," is simple, and that's what makes it so brilliant. In it, Pork Chop the tabby strolls along to the chant of "walking for kisses," while his owner, Prince, crawls alongside of him, administering the promised smooches at every beat.
That in itself might not seem so impressive, but the infectious chant, along with the fact that Pork Chop pauses, and raises his head in anticipation of the impending kisses, is what makes it one of the most positively adorable cat videos that has crossed my desk in a long time.
The man behind the video is Prince Gomolvilas, an award-winning playwright and performer who has had his plays produced around United States, in the U.K., and in Singapore, and has toured the country as part of the storytelling, song-singing, bingo-playing duo, Jukebox Stories.
Gomolvilas currently lives in Los Angeles with his beloved cat, and co-star, Pork Chop, and recently agreed to answer some of my questions about the viral video sensation.
