Reader Nat tipped us off to a new video by New York duo The Ropes for their song “Kitty Get Down”. Apparently their fans were concerned enough to prompt a clarification from the band that no kitties were harmed in the making of this video:
No. Kitty is not a song about a real cat. “Kitty” is a metaphor for anyone who has ever been scared or intimidated by the world. After realizing that everyone else is also hiding and climbing their own metaphorical trees, Kitty finds the strength to get down and face fears. This is the only choice because if Kitty doesn’t make the change, no one else will. If you are like Kitty, maybe it’s time to get down.
Consider this TOE’s part in helping you get down. Enjoy.
