Too Fracking Good to Be True: “My Cat Saved My Son” Might Be A Marketing Tool

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.
