THE AIRWAVES — The best laid plans can’t always help you when it comes to live TV.

Aside from the scary things that can happen during live shots, the unpredictability of live TV can often gift the internet with pure comedy gold. Sometimes the weather helps us laugh, sometimes it’s a random kid at a fair and sometimes hilarious accidents happen.

We all remember this dad’s recent foray into live TV that left him internet famous for at least 15 minutes when his children crashed an interview with the BBC. So in the spirit of the now-grand tradition of beloved small creatures crashing live TV interviews, please (fancy) feast your eyes on this featured video.

Dr. Jerzy Targalski, a Polish academic and activist, was recently giving a live interview for Dutch television program Nieuwsuur. At some point, a needy orange tabby enters the picture and quickly makes his way to a seemingly familiar perch on the good doctor’s shoulders.

Both cat and Targalski seem mostly unperturbed by the interaction. Targalski just keeps on keeping on until the cat turns and puts his tail right in his face.

In this person’s opinion, if the professor didn’t already have a moustache, the cat’s tail would’ve made an incredibly stylish and handsome substitute to lend Targalski an air of disheveled academic intelligence.

It’s just more proof that no matter how much we domesticate cats, they will absolutely do what they want, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
