TV Anchor Hilariously Fails at Trying to Make Grumpy Cat Smile

If you’ve been on the internet at all in the last year, then you’re familiar with the viral sensation that is Grumpy Cat. Well, the cuddly, constantly-cantankerous feline made an appearance on New York station WPIX on Monday, and anchor Scott Sanford attempted the impossible: making Grumpy Cat smile.

It went about as well as you imagine it would.

Grumpy Cat is in New York for The Friskies Internet Cat Video Awards (yes, that’s a real thing, and it’s available to stream at 7 P.M. tonight).

Sanford made a few puns to try and elicit some kind of positive emotion from the surly cat, instead just making himself burst out in hysterics. When Grumpy Cat didn’t react at all, anchor Tamsen Fadal quickly quipped, “That’s exactly how all of us feel about your jokes.”

On an unrelated note, Grumpy Cat Cake Pops are now a thing, so enjoy that, mindless consumers.
