Cat Filter Video with Pakistani Politician Becomes An International Hit

Even international media ‘ap-purr-oves’

So recently Pakistani politician Shaukat Yousafzai showed up as a ‘cat’ to a press conference. Actually, it was that smartphone camera’s cat filter to blame which was supposed to livestream the minister’s press conference.

The broadcast of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister was shared on various governmental pages, a few of which include: Shaukat Yousafzai’s page and Tehreek-e-Insaf official Facebook pages. Although the broadcast was later removed, social media already pounced on the scene (because screen-grabs are forever!).

International Media Loves It

This incident blew up so big, even International media was all over it. That is not bad at all as social media is actually swooning over how cute this whole ordeal is. Its certainly not a cat-astrophe.


In fact, netizens propose this is how we’d like to see our politicians.

Rather than get his whiskers in a twist, even Shaukat Yousafzai cracked a joke about the situation in an interview with Agence France-Presse.

The Internet surely made light of the situation. Thought they want their politicians to catch-on with the cat filter


If not a cat, than surely these politicians can use their own ‘spirit filter’ (if you’re a bird, be a bird).

Netizens are lobbying to make this standard protocol for all official broadcasts from now on. We think that this will actually compel people to watch the news now and then.

It really was the pur-fect broadcast.

The media jumped the bandwagon cause why not (for the love of cats).


Of course, the Japanese loved it too. It is the land of ‘Kawaii‘ (cuteness) after all.

Some did get their claws out but avoided getting into a cat-fight.

The general ruling was clearly ‘cute.’ We can chalk this cat filter video up as a win for Pakistan on international media.
