There are signs that the endearing video of a cat rescuing a small boy from the attack of a neighbor’s dog is created by a marketing firm. Apparently the video is too good to be true, in narrative structure, production value, and so on. That is what German journalist Gabriele Hooffacker claims to have found out. Accorning to Hooffacker’s plausible argument, the video was the set-up for the youtube channel – so that an energy company could promote fracking.
Which, in a way, would make sense: The dog acts so crazy, he might have taken a sip from that inflammable tab water.
