Happy holidays from everyone's favorite existentialist cat and YouTube star, Henri, Le Chat Noir.
The melancholy feline has released "The Worst Noel," a new video based loosely on Charles Dickens' novella "A Christmas Carol."
The video opens with Henri philosophizing that the holidays are "just another excuse for the world to intrude on my solitude." Annoyed by everything, he retreats to sleep, where he can truly be alone.
(Kudos to filmmaker Will Braden for his artful effects work in this section. The dreamtime effects look really cool, while staying true to the film's 1940s and European influences.)
In his dream, Henri is visited by the three cats who share the house with him, and each teaches him a valuable lesson about himself and the holiday spirit.
