Superchunk's "Crossed Wires" cat video goes viral sans any mention of Superchunk

Superchunk has gone viral—sort of. A crafty Russian user took the band’s kitty-centric video for “Crossed Wires,” stripped out original song, threw in Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up,” and an Internet sensation was born. It’s garnered about half a million hits and popped up on sites like Cheezburger without any sort of mention of the band or the video’s director, Whitey McConnaughy. Watch both the knock-off and the original below and consider yourself armed with enough information to post a smart comment next time you see the duplicate out in the Internet wild.
