YouTuber Scottdw may have figured out the perfect equation for a viral video: rap, superhero stuff and slow-motion kitten footage.

Don't believe us? Just take a peek at the video above and you'll be whistling a different tune.

For anyone concerned about the safety of the kittens involved, here is the full disclaimer from the creator:

Before you go all crazy on me for "hurting" cats, you should know that the cats were handled with GREAT care. We decided to keep the shot tight on the cats so that they did not need to be airborne very long. The cats were tossed a few feet into an enormous and ultra soft sheepskin blanket. The cats were treated like royalty. They were fed gourmet cat food and lots of water. We took many breaks where the kittens rested and played in the shade. They were full of energy the entire shoot which lasted a mere one hour. This video was shot six months ago and the cats are alive and in perfect health today. I love cats and would never even consider harming them...so please stop sending me death threats. Anyways...
