In quite possibly the weirdest ‘remake’ of the popular holiday movie Home Alone, a cat bests a couple of cat burglars when his owner accidentally leaves him behind on a trip to Hawaii.
If you’re tired of all those traditional feel-good movies that make you tear up at the end because you learn the true meaning of Christmas is: (insert sappy true meaning of your choice)…then perhaps this is the video for you.
Created by Aaron Benitez, of Aaron’s Animals, the short film features Prince Michael, Benitez’s British Shorthair, stuck in an episode straight out of Home Alone, including a super-smart plan to foil ‘cat’ burglars who try to break into Prince Michael’s home.
It’s weird. Not doubt. But strangely mesmerizing and you find yourself rewatching and rewatching. (Just me? Okayyy…)
Benitez calls himself the formerly homeless Youtuber, as he used to live out of his Suburban while he was creating and growing his wedding photography and graphics effects businesses.
Now, he says, though he and Prince Michael get to live a bit more regularly, they still enjoy the crazy of creativity in their work, and the lessons learned from their days on the streets.
Mostly, Benitez says, they’ve learned the value of a good nap!
