A love letter to the Internet from a feral cat in Brooklyn.

Anonymously published to the web in 2006, Valentine for Perfect Strangers was an early example of an art video that "went viral," amassing over a half-million views and landing on the front page of YouTube.

 


 

Bonus Feature:  DVD versions of this title include the  Russian "sequel"  Valentine for Russian Perfect Strangers. This video was made for inclusion in the Moscow Biennial, where the English and Russian versions alternated on a loop. The Russian version uses footage from the Russian version of the TV show Perfect Strangers in place of the original footage. It also includes a number of departures from the original script that explain the English original and address concerns of a Russian-speaking art audience.
