Cats recently took over the #BrusselsLockdown hashtag after the Paris terrorist attacks had Belgium police on high alert (you can read about it here). Now they’re featured in a video that officials hope with bring tourists back to the beleaguered city, according to The Guardian.
Click the video accompanying this article to see cats at various Brussels landmarks. It’s an effort to counteract the effects of the city’s five-day lock down, which resulted in many would-be visitors canceling their trips. In the video, the felines strut their stuff in a style that pays homage to Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte.
The original cat takeover was a response to pleas from the police for people not to give details of their anti-terrorist operations. Instead of detailing what the police were up to, the #BrusselsLockdown was swamped with kitty cuteness. Hopefully, the power of cats will extend to their video appearance and draw tourists back to the city.
