Over at Pajiba, siterunner Dustin Rowles presents A Transparent Attempt to Explain the Economics Behind Running a Pop-Culture Website and… Well, you get the idea.

The are both from a series called Trailer Cats, which is exactly what you might think it is. The two most entertaining trailers in this series, so far as I can tell, are the one’s for Despicable Me 2 (starring adorable kitten minions) and The Dark Knight Rises, because that Tom Hardy Bane cat is so goddamn creepy.
