Bongo Cat refers to an animation of a catappearing to play the bongos that has been used in various remix videos to make it appear as though the cat is playing along to different songs. After the original video grew popular, people made different versions of the video showing the cat playing other instruments.
On May 7th, 2018, Twitter user @DitzyFlama responded to Twitter user @StrayRogue's GIF of an animated cat slapping a table by posting a video in which he'd edited the GIF to include bongos and added the song "Athletic" from the Super Mario World soundtrack. The tweet gained over 3,800 retweets and 7,000 likes.
On May 14th, the clip was posted to PLwomen by user anon eats crayons (shown below, left). On May 20th, user GarinBadger uploaded a version of the video that played for the entire duration of "Athletic," gaining over 61,000 views (shown below, right).
In the following months, remixes began appearing on PLwomen that featured the cat playing other instruments. On June 7th, PLwomen user Kirk Keely posted an edit in which the cat plays electric guitar (shown below, left). On September 8th, PLwomenr BananaManPlays made a Running In the 90s parody of the animation, gaining over 41,000 views (shown below, right).
Around the same time, DitzyFlama began posting more versions of the meme, including a "Through the Fire and the Flames" edit (shown below, top) and a "Take On Me" edit (shown below, bottom).
Bongos (Spanish: bongó) are an Afro-Cubanpercussion instrument consisting of a pair of small open bottomed drums of different sizes. In Spanish the larger drum is called the hembra (female) and the smaller the macho(male). Together with the conga or tumbadora, and to a lesser extent the batádrum, bongos are the most widespread Cuban hand drums, being commonly played in genres such as son cubano, salsa and Afro-Cuban jazz. A bongo drummer is known as a bongosero.
