Over the last few days, a phenomenon has been sweeping the Internet. What is it, you ask? It’s Keyboard Cat, of course!

Keyboard Cat is a great way to punctuate any awkward television moment, like TV hosts throwing up, or a "Walker: Texas Ranger" episode that declares a child has a disease. Watch the video above—you won’t be sorry.

Implications - It's impossible to predict whether an Internet video will become a viral meme, but Keyboard Cat hit the jackpot by turning an adorable personified pet into a virtuoso pianist. The unexpected combination of a household pet, catchy music and amateur filmmaking made this YouTube video a must-see around the world.
