While doing research for my latest vlog episode, “HOW TO ESCAPE FROM ANYWHERE, FAST,” I tumbled down the YouTube rabbit hole landing at “Ahhhhhh for 10 Hours.” It’s a 10-hour long YouTube video of a cowboy belting “Ahhhhh!!!” Can you believe it has 1,332,216 views?! WT-HECK? I’m fairly sure that “Ahhhhhh for 10 hours” was not what scientists had in mind when they sent that first “Hello” via the internet on Oct. 29, 1969.

I have to admit, I then spent an unreasonable amount of time watching a fellow feline’s treadmill weight loss regime to the sound of “Staying Alive” by the Bee Gees. But that’s YouTube for you.

In close, Ahhhhhrrr they FOR REAL? If you can explain how this video has received so many views, please stop by the shelter, I’d love your insight. Sincerely, Mati.
