To recap, let's take a look at the things that are amazing about this video:
- During the montage of the family's story, the background music is "Memories" from Andrew Lloyd Weber's much-lauded, much-laughed-at musical CATS. Who knew the production crew had such a refined sense of humor?
- Willow has nicer green eyes than most supermodels.
- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg used Willow as a boon to the city in a public speech. (I guess this officially makes her the cat's meow.)
- Whoever was in charge of the photo montages is an artistic genius -- and a tasteful one, at that. At the 2:30 mark, Willow is legitimately PhotoShopped onto a motorcycle speeding in the desert.
"I don't think anyone's ever really going to know the truth of what actually happened to her," said Jamie Squires. "It's better for us to think she's been off on some great adventure." This, accompanied by a sound effect form Law & Order, completes the newsgathering section of the interview, as if curiosity has the power to kill more than just Willow's kind.
In other news, Jamie Squires has let the cat out of the bag for her plan to write a children's book about Willow. We're picturing something like, Cat Me If You Can: The Story of Willow Squires And What She Dragged In, but that sounds a little world-weary for the pre-tween crowd. If you have any title ideas of your own, leave them in the comments section below.
