– (snickers) – Okay, Kitty.
Yes, Hawaii Five-0, right? – Oh my goodness.
– Oh my gosh. What is that?
– Whatever that is, I need more of it. – It’s the Bongo Cat thing.
– It’s just a couple pictures. It’s not a–
it’s a very basic meme. – I have no idea what that was.
That was a cat on a bongo. It’s my living dream. ♪ (Zelda theme) ♪
– (gasps) Ohh, Spanish guitar. – Oh my goodness!
– Look at his little hands! (laughs) – ♪ (hums melody) ♪
Zelda! – Are you kidding me?
– (gasps) Oh my god! It’s Zelda! – Oh, there’s a whole band of ’em.
– Oh man. That’s pretty cool. – It’s like a little Latin flair
on the Zelda theme. That was kind of nice.
– I think I’m too old to appreciate whatever this is.
– Is this a popular meme? – Dang! That’s pretty talented.
Someone just put that all together. – I feel like I’ve seen
one of these before. – I have never seen this before,
but I wanna see more of it. ♪ (“A Thousand Miles” piano) ♪

– (softly) Oh my god. I’m gonna cry already.
– Ohh! – ♪ (drums on table) ♪
– This is beautiful. – ♪ Making my way downtown ♪

pretty good editing. Wow. – ♪ This is going down in history ♪
– Oh, you love it. – I mean, it’s cute.

I like it. – This is a meme on a meme.
You can’t combine this many things. – But it [bleep] did. ♪ (rhythmic music) ♪ – Oh my god.
Oh my god. – This is a really old meme,
but I like this song. – I’m enjoying it so far.
– ♪ Oooh ♪ – This is one of the greatest things
I’ve ever seen actually. ♪ (Darude, “Sandstorm”) ♪
– Okay, there it is. There it is. (laughs) – This is pretty funny.
– Classic. Going through space. – Just let the music wash over me.
– Woo! – (both) Wow.
– You know what this reminds me of? Nyan Cat!
– There isn’t enough good, clean-hearted comedy
on the internet these days, and I think it’s very important
that we take some time to appreciate how wonderful this is.
– There hasn’t been something like this for a minute,
and I love it when people take a meme and expand on it exponentially. ♪ (rhythmic music) ♪
– Oh, is this gonna be– Keyboard Cat! There it–
(laughs) ♪ (keyboard music) ♪
– Oh yeah, that’s Keyboard Cat. I was waiting for this.
– There we go. There’s the piano cat. All right.

doo doo doo doo ♪ – Oh yeah.
This is beautiful. – Oh, I like this one.
– (chuckles) He’s so fat. – Man, who needs the world
when you have stuff like this? I don’t need to leave my apartment.
– Some memes are just easy. You put a picture
and you put some words, and the meme’s done.
This is time consuming for a joke, and I appreciate the payoff. ♪ (bongo music) ♪
– Whoa. – Oh, [bleep], a 3D one. – Oh, wow! Someone got a budget.
– Oh, they gots a budget! – Wooo.
– Wow, now we’ve accelerated very quickly into CGI versions. – (Bongo Cat meows)
♪ I’m a cat ♪ – It’s evolving in so many ways.

– (both sing along) ♪ Play the bongo ♪ – (humming)
– I like this one! – It’s so catchy!
– Somebody has a beautiful mind. – Delicious little cats.
– How did they do the 3D animation? – I don’t know.
– Doesn’t that cost, like, a lot of money? – Or a lot of time.
– Yeah. ♪ (soft instrumental music) ♪
– What the [bleep]? – (man) Play bongo.
– Uh-huh, uh-huh. Yeah.
♪ (Mii theme) ♪ – Oh wow.
– Mm-hmm. – Oh, yes. Yes.
– Oh god. – I like that.
– (man) Well played. – I don’t like it.
– (man) …fish for you. – Okay, so in this one,
I’m more concerned about this creepy red man
than I am the cat. – (scoffs) Uh-oh,
don’t piss off the cat. – What?
– I was really looking forward to seeing where that was going.
– These are getting creepier, and I have to drive home alone. – They’re getting
more bizarre, certainly. – Yeah. That one had a whole story.
– Yeah. – You either die a wholesome meme
or live long enough (chuckles) to see yourself
become toxic! (clapping) – ♪ Ass, ass, ass, ass, ass ♪
– (laughs) – Ooh, I like this one.
– (bursts out laughing) – Can I go back
to the other cute cats? – He’s slapping what appears
to be ass. – The question, is that a human ass
or is that a cat ass? – ♪ Stop, stop ♪
– (snorts) What?! – That’s dirty.
– I love it. It’s a great meme. – I really like this meme,
because you have to actually be really talented to pull it off
if you wanna make one of your own. It’s kind of fun and refreshing
to see people get so creative with something so simple.
– (FBE) So the meme is called Bongo Cat.
– Oh, okay. Makes sense. – Oh, Bongo Cat.
– Bongo Cat. Well, he is a cat. He plays the bongo, dance all,
dance all night. – Mm-hmm.
– (FBE) Many people say that the meme originated from a GIF posted
to Twitter in May that had just this simple animation.
– Ahh. – Oh, okay.
So, that’s the original. – It’s so simple!
– Aww. With no sound. He’s just beating away
to the sweet sounds of silence. – I remember seeing this.
– That’s cute. Yeah. – And then it just blew up.
– (FBE) From there, many say that the origin of the bongos
came a day later when another user posted this. ♪ (Super Mario World, “Athletic”) ♪
– Ohhh! That’s dope. – ♪ (hums along) ♪ – Wow.
– Ah, so it’s not just one person’s creation.
It’s sort of the creation of the internet.
– It’s the internet. – Ah.
– The internet is so stupid, but so awesome.
– I never would’ve expected it to just blow up
into what it is today. Amazing. – I like how creative people can be
with memes nowadays. It’s like a comedy genre on its own.
– The internet can be a dark place, but it can also be
a beacon of light, as seen by Bongo Cat.
– Internet culture gets a lot of flack for being lazy,
and this is an example of something that is really artful in a way and time consuming and creative,
and I love it. – (FBE) This meme has become
extremely popular with a lot of different variations of it.
We are seeing compilations of hundreds of these videos
from different creators. Some have millions of views.
Some have tens of thousands of retweets.
– Dang. – It’s a versatile little meme,
and you can put it anywhere. You could literally put it right here
with me and I’m sure– – (Bongo Cat meows)
– …I’m sure you could put that and it would be like…
♪ (bongo drumming) ♪ I should be bongo-ing Bongo Cat.
There you go. – Since the animation is really simple
and loopable, I think it made it a little easier for people to copy
and paste onto different things. And it’s actually kind of fun
to see where people take it with their animation skills.
– (FBE) So, this meme really took off in the last month
with a lot of media outlets who reported on it,
saying that this was, quote, “The wholesome meme
we all need right now.” – Yeah!
– Right, yeah. – I think so.
– I could kind of see that. When I was looking at it,
I was like, “Oh yeah, I could share this meme
with my six-year-old nephew or whatever and I won’t
feel weird about it.” – Everything is about sex
and ass and [bleep] and cigars, and it’s nice to see something
that is very clean. And I’m not even
saying that sarcastically, ’cause I do anything but clean humor,
but I can appreciate when something clean goes huge,
because yeah, you don’t see that very often. – In the darkest of times
in this world, you have to look towards the light.
And even if that light is, in fact, just a cat playing some bongos, it is something
that people will look to. – (FBE) As creators yourselves,
do you find that doing something that’s a little more wholesome works,
or is it more advantageous to stir a little controversy
when creating content? – Well, in my channel–
my channel’s completely clean. – And mine’s completely dirty. So…
– So… – …we partner together,
and we can kind of balance. – I have kids and stuff,
so I wanna, like… If one of my kids’ friends
watched my channel, I want them to be like,
“Oh, it’s fine.” – I definitely feel like
I prioritize my wholesome side a lot more than my (deepens voice)
“Get all the views in the world” side. But if I prioritize that, then yeah,
I would feel that pressure, I think. – I would say we always strive
for things that are wholesome. – We do both. Uhh…
– You know, I mean, we— Well, we show our butts a lot,
but in a wholesome way. – Yeah, with a little kitty cat
playing them like a drum. – I remember when I was a kid,
I hated not being able to share things with my grandparents,
my aunts and uncles on Christmas and Thanksgiving,
because it was inappropriate. I couldn’t, you know–
So, it is kind of cool for kids to be able to be like, oh, and enjoy
something with their parents. – We’ve seen some pretty dark parts
of YouTube for sure. And I can tell you right now,
there’s no real light at the end of the tunnel, you know?
It’s a pretty dark void. So, I guess, good on Bongo Cat
for surviving it. – (FBE) So finally,
we want you to create your very own Bongo Cat meme.
– (laughs) What? – How can I do that?
– Okay. – Hmm, what we should we put–
do you want– should I play your butt?
– Yeah, play my butt. ♪ (bongo drumming) ♪
– (FBE) Actually, we had something else in mind
without Ned’s butt. – Woo!
– Ohh. Ohh. I understand. I understand.
– (FBE) So obviously, you’re gonna need help doing that,
so go ahead and type in and see what happens.
– Oh there–! And then there he is. – I can control Bongo Cat.
Bongos left and right, click A and D.
Cymbals, C. Meow– MEOW?! – C.
– (Bongo Cat meows) (rapid meowing) (meows)
– Oh! And he– (laughs) ♪ (discordant piano music) ♪
– Ohh, dang! This is dope. – How do I write a– OHHH! – Make it meow.
– (Bongo Cat meows) – (chuckles) That’s cool.
– There’s only, like, two instruments. – No! No, there’s more!
♪ (cymbal crashing) ♪ ♪ (taps bongo) ♪
– Ooh! (laughs) ♪ (cymbal crashes) ♪
Oh, hoo, hoo! Oh my god. ♪ (random piano notes) ♪
– (Bongo Cat meowing) – [Bleep] it up, Ned!
Get it! Dirty! ♪ (bongo drumming) ♪
– Yes! – (Bongo Cat meowing) ♪ (bongo drumming) ♪
– (Bongo Cat meows) ♪ (xylophone slide) ♪
– Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!
– (laughs triumphantly) ♪ (cymbal crashes) ♪
Wow, this is a really great way to spend your day.
