This short yet sweet video was actually published by shapiro127 at the end of 2010, but it has experienced a second surge of viewership over the weekend. Just over the past few days, it has accumulated over 125,000 views, and is still trending. 

In the only eight second video, an adorable kitten attempts in vain to stop sliding down a playground slide. It’s an adorable few seconds as the kitten meows and slides down to the end of the slope. 

But only at the end do viewers see a fire pit at the landing! Of course, the fire is just CGI special effects, but still some viewers are irked and shocked. 

Others play along with the joke, like YouTuber Aegisgfx who says, “OMG was the fire ok???”
