Australian News Anchor Interviews Grumpy Cat, Goes Completely Hysterical

When you watch this interview of Today Show Australia anchor Karl Stefanovic absolutely losing it while talking to Grumpy Cat, the Internet meme/most amazing cat ever, cut him some slack before you judge: How would you react, if faced with the same task? Really, we should be applauding Stefanovic for holding a straight face for as long as he did, because I can guarantee that I would be in hysterics much sooner than he was.

Seriously, though, this interview is amazing, and probably the best thing to come out of the Today show franchise in just about ever. It starts off calmly — Karl Stefanovic introduces Grumpy Cat, who's being interviewed via a live feed, and asks her a few questions about whether or not she's happy to be doing this interview, her thoughts on Mondays, and how she feels about Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd. She doesn't respond (sadly), and Stefanovic is reduced into a cackling mess — he collapses back on his chair and points at the screen, wheezing while he laugh and repeats "look at that cat" over and over again. There's a reference to Jabba the Hutt somewhere in there, too.

You can watch Stefanovic's interview with Grumpy Cat below. Also, if you're not familiar with Stefanovic's work, check out his finest on-air moment ever. Petition to give this guy a show over here in the states, anyone?
