So as you might have heard, with movie theaters shuttering across the country due to the coronavirus, some studios are releasing films currently in theaters onto VOD.
And studios are also pushing up the digital release dates of older recent movies that haven't been released onto home video yet. One of those movies released early was the infamous Cats, which was released yesterday. This, of course, led to many people (including Seth Rogen) to check it out for the first time.
One of those people watching it was writer-director Ben Mekler, who — while trying to make sense of the film —tweeted this out:
After tweeting that out, writer Jack Waz replied to Ben with this tweet, where he alleges that there is a cut of the film that has CGI cat buttholes in it:
That's right!!! Allegedly they had put CGI buttholes on the CATS!!! And all I can say is that this was literally me reading that tweet:
Of course, the good people on Twitter had lots of reactions to this and soon the hashtag #ReleaseTheButtholeCut was trending.
One of the first people to chime in was Knives Out writer-director, Rian Johnson, who thinks this is what society needs now:
And many people share that same sentiment:
While others were just caught up in the absurdity of it all:
Some actually pondered about being a CGI artist on the film and having the responsibility of drawing cat anuses:
Meanwhile, Seth Rogen just flat-out demanded that the film be released:
And FTR, Jack Waz has promised to make it his life's work to get that alleged "The Butthole Cut" out into the world.
Who would've thought that Cats would be the gift that keeps on giving?!
