Keyboard Cat owner is a douchebag

Tuesday June 9, 2009

Recently, “Play Him Off, Keyboard Cat” by Brad O’Farrell, the video that made the Keyboard Cat famous, was REMOVED FROM YOUTUBE We, here at The Real Truth, have incontrovertible evidence that Charlie Schmidt, owner of the Keyboard Cat (and complete fucking asshole) is the man responsible.



PLAY HIM OFF, KEYBOARD CAT – Brad O’Farrell

Backstory: Charlie Schmidt (asshole) uploaded footage of his cat, Fatso, “playing” a piano, on youtube. Brad O’Farrell took his footage, edited it, and combined it with another video of a man falling down an escalator. Brad’s video was very successful, spawning thousands of copycat videos and generating hundreds of thousands of hits on youtube. Brad even had a site for Keyboard Cat where he has a prominent link to Charlie’s site and the original video of Fatso. Recently, Brad’s video was removed from YouTube due to terms of use violation

Here’s what happened. Charlie (fuck face) was pissed that he filmed the original footage, but he wasn’t the one getting all the attention. So he has YouTube remove Brad’s video so his video will be #1 when someone searches keyboard cat on youtube He doesn’t even need a legitimate case. It’s easy to get something removed from YouTube and essentially impossible to get it reversed.

This is total bullshit!

Just watch Charlie’s original video all the way through to get a sense of his personality. It starts good, but in the second half of the video, you just feel bad for Fatso and it kind of ruins everything.
