If you haven’t heard of the Keyboard Cat, we suggest – scratch that – demand that you head to the YouTube video and get up to speed. To date, the video is a few thousand views short of 19,000,000. Yes, that’s 6 zeros and we’re just as shocked as you. But there is no denying the catchy cat tune.

Now just in time for the holidays Charlie Schmidt, the guy behind the video, has developed an accompanying (you probably thought that read “annoying) toy. The video has been online since June of 2007 (it was originally produced in 1984), so we’re a bit surprised that it has taken him this long to milk society of their hard earned earn money, but better late than never. The cat, much like the video version, will tickle the ivories and produce the very same mind drilling tune you’ve probably come to hate and love.

Unfortunately, no word on where it will be sold or for how much. Errr, maybe we meant to say “fortunately”.
