The cats have returned to Brussels, this time to welcome — and encourage — visitors back to the Belgium capital.
Tourism Flanders, Visit Brussels and Wallonia-Brussels Tourism joined together and released a 20-second video featuring playful furry felines at some of the city’s most historic landmarks, including the historic Grand Place and the 1958 Expo Atomium building, reports The Guardian.
The Belgium tourist organizations reportedly created the short during the city’s lockdown late last month, when the country’s federal police asked residents not to tweet or share on social media anything about the sweep of the city in response to an unspecified “serious and imminent threat.”
Citizens responded to the request by instead posting pictures of cats with the hashtag #BrusselsLockdown. Playing off the social media phenomenon (and as a way of saying thanks), the tourist groups made the cat-infused promo.
Like most of the cat memes and viral videos that populate the Internet, there’s no way watch this creative (and bizarre) tourism video without at least cracking a smile — especially when you get cats playing instruments, skateboarding and dancing.
The fun, arty beat isn’t too bad, either.
Who’s up for a trip to Brussels?
