Whether you're a big fan of Nyan Cat or not, the Internet feline has managed to warm the hearts of those who have viewed Nyan the Movie.

Nyan the Movie is a fan-generated short film by YouTube user videoparodiso and features a real cat watching television with its owner; this is then when the owner realizes its pets dream to go up into space.

The short film shows the cat finally being launched into space and smiling, melting the viewer's heart as he achieves his dream of being in space. At the end of the film, videoparodiso slips in the message, "Dedicated to Anyone Who Dares to Dream."

Implications - When an Internet meme such as Nyan Cat becomes popular, fan-created products and films surface. Because of this, other fans of the Internet meme will be driven to either watch or purchase the products out of their appreciation for the character.
