Henri the French Cat Articulates the Pain of His Existence and Becomes Famous!



In case you haven't heard of Henri, the existential art film cat, please acquaint yourself because you’re looking at a cat who is well known for articulating his painful existence in ‘Henri 2, Paw de Deux’. This film won the Golden Kitty for Best Cat Video on the Internet at the Internet Cat Video Film Festival in Minneapolis so please enjoy!


The festival, held at the Walker Art Center, played 79 crowd-sourced cat videos, which were carefully selected from the 10,000 that were submitted from all around the world.


Henri was chosen as the winner by visitors to the Walker Art Center’s website, who were allowed to vote for their pick. His owner, Will Braden, appreciated the victory, and is currently making a living selling Henri-themed merchandise on the web. He’s raking in $1,000 a week from t-shirts, coffee mugs, and posters. In addition, Henri currently has 50, 812 likes on his Facebook page and yet he still mopes.
