Internet-famous cat Lil Bub attended the premiere of his new documentary, Lil Bub & Friendz, at the Tribeca Film Festival last night. (The movie is a Vice Films production, which makes Bub's cinematic debut a bit like Selena Gomez accepting a Harmony Korine role to "break out.") She worked the red carpet with aplomb.
She struck poses, mostly while snuggling the red carpet.
She gave interviews.
Well, technically Lil Bub owner Mike Bridavsky gave interviews. Lil Bub & Friendz explores the lives of several internet-famous cats and their owners. Bridavsky and Bub are the main characters. They live in Bloomington, Indiana.
"[T]he doc offers a plausible non-commercial explanation for the cat-vid phenomenon," The Hollywood Reporter critic John DeFore writes. "While dog owners have daily walks and dedicated parks as a social outlet, cat lovers are isolated in their homes; if they want to prove how adorable their four-legged roommates are, they have to document it online."
Bub's "freakish cuteness," DeFore continues, "derives from a perfect storm of birth defects: an underdeveloped lower jaw leaves her tongue permanently dangling, stubby legs force her to drag herself around."
Lil Bub & Friendz is showing for free at the Tribeca Drive-In tomorrow night. Just sayin'.
