Watch Kitties in Chains Parody Alice in Chains’ ‘Man in the Box’
Just when you thought all the viral cat videos had been made, YouTube user Joey Siler enters the scene and fills an immense gap with a parody video that we didn’t even realize was missing from our lives -- that is until now. Behold: Cats spoofing Alice in Chains.
Siler’s trio of cartoon cats -- dubbed Kitties in Chains, naturally -- transforms Alice in Chains’ “Man in the Box” into the brooding anthem, “Cat in the Box,” substituting the original lyrics with … well, more cat-oriented fare. Check it out for yourself in the video up above.
