Warwick Davis, Idris Elba and More Recreate YouTube’s Greatest Hits



Never one to let a good short joke go to waste, Warwick decides to recreate some of the better-known cat videos – by playing every cat (Who else thinks they’d be 100% better if he wore his Wicket costume?). The premise of the joke is that he has accidentally broken YouTube, and enlisted the likes of Anthony Head and Idris Elba to reshoot every viral hit so that nobody else will notice. It’s Be Kind, Rewind as a series of shorts. Except you can watch each sweded short separately, apart from the main narrative if you so choose.

I can’t help but think what’s missing – couldn’t he have gotten Bruce Boxleitner to play Tron Guy?

Full skit after the jump.
