Over the weekend, a Dutch artist named Bart Jansen turned his dead cat into a taxidermied helicopter and everyone is, pardon the curse, totally shitting their pants about it. My goodness. People can’t get enough of this awful thing! Daily Mail talked to the artist about it and this is what he had to say:

Jansen said the Orvillecopter is ‘half cat, half machine’, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his cat Orville.

Jansen, part of the art cooperative Generaal Pardon, said: ‘After a period of mourning he received his propellers posthumously.’

He added that Orville will soon be ‘flying with the birds’ stating: ‘Oh how he loved birds. He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight.’

Oh how he loved birds. We can all only hope that upon our own deaths someone turns us into a machine version of something they assume we loved to do, just because we did it a lot. “She’s an RSS feed now. Oh how she loved blogs.” “Nooooooooooooo!” So let’s watch this kind of horrifying video already. YOU GUYS WANTED THIS!

There you go. A dead cat helicopter piece of artwork that no one asked for, yet EVERYONE received and then passed along to someone else who didn’t ask for it. Life’s crazy, man, but not as crazy as DEATH. (Thanks for the tip, everybody.)

  1. Just for the record, I most certainly did NOT want this. I am entirely opposed to cybernetics in cats, ever since what happened to Acoustic Kitty.

  2. Now you know what that Swedish doctor in the tv show The Kingdom was on about it when he would always rant, “DANISH SCUM!”

  3. Congrats garfield, you are now only the second most hated cat

  4. Wow! That thing really purrs.

  5. “Oh how Summer Estherson loved chocolate. Which is why we’ve encased her entire body in chocolate and she now lies in state in a fully realized replica of the chocolate waterfall room from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

  6. It’s the fucking Catalina Wine Meow Mixer!

  7. I can’t wait for someone to turn their dog into a wave runner or four-wheeler!

  8. Aaaaaand as soon as I pressed submit, I realized that might have sounded racist but it wasn’t you guys! Wave runners! I was thinking of the wave runners!

  9. Uh, as a cat-lover and owner of two cats, and also as someone who thinks RC helicopters are cool, I think this is unequivocally awesome. It sure beats the paw-print in a little clay mold that I got when my last kitty (whom I miss very much) passed away.

  10. Gonna be real hard for that thing to land on its feet.

  11. This makes me too sad to even make a “surprise there’s a _______ to see you” joke.

  12. wait until you see what we do to the grannies we’ve immorally euthanized in our death camps – i mean hospitals.

  13. I spent a good portion of my work-day yesterday making mashups of this video with ‘I Believe I Can Fly’, “Wind Beneath My Wings”, “Fly” (Sugar Ray), and “I Want to Know What Love Is” via YouTubeDoubler with my friends over gChat. Day at work spent well.

  14. Well played, sir, well played.
