Cat knocks over jug of water and drenches sleeping owner

"Cat Accidentally Gives Owner a Shower in Bed" is the video title. Being somewhat cynical in my old age, the only question that I have regarding this video is whether it is genuine. I suspect that it is not. I think it was staged. Let's analyse it. The woman knows that her cat likes to walk on that shelf at night because it has happened in the past. 

She has a security camera in her bedroom or she put it up for the purpose of videoing this episode. She puts a jug of water on that shelf knowing that there is a good chance that her cat will knock it over. The outcome is not certain but it is likely nonetheless. She makes the video. She sells it to the Daily Mail. How much do they pay? I don't know. Probably up to a 500-1000 quid for something that is good and this is quite a good video in this genre of videos i.e. funny cat videos which are always quite popular. 

I think it is quite noticeable that her reaction when the water falls on her head is quite slow and she gives the impression to me that she is unsurprised. This helps support my theory about this being a staged video. It should also be said that there are a lot of staged videos on YouTube which are presented as genuine. The purpose is to earn money through advertising.



Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
