    This Guy Re-Creates Famous Movie Scenes With His Cats And It's Hilarious

    The only kind of remakes worth doing tbh.

    Willow and Tara are two 4-year-old Burmese cats from Nottingham, England. Every week, they recreate iconic movie scenes with their humans David and Sarah Chapman.

    Chapman told BuzzFeed News the couple came up with the idea to re-create movie scenes with their cats for a pub quiz that David runs.

    They then started the Instagram account @moviecats, as well as @casualmoviecats for behind-the-scenes photos.

    "Our cats are fairly laidback, so they're pretty happy as long as treats are involved," Chapman said. Each shoot takes one to two hours.

    Chapman said the couple have already got a few more re-creations in mind but did not want to reveal them because they are for the pub quiz.

    She added that they are aiming to post a new photo every one to two weeks.
