Korean boyband Bangtan Sonyeondan aka BTS has been smashing records after records with their latest single ‘Butter’. Now, as fans around the world celebrate the summer hit dominating the Billboard Hot 100 charts for two weeks in a row, a cute spoof of the song featuring cats is melting hearts online.
Recreating scene-by-scene the first part from the original video, the only difference in the feline version is that it features five cats, while the world famous K-pop group has seven members. From Jungkook kissing his hand to V sucking onto his lollipop, the details with which the mugshot sequence has been recreated have left Army — as BTS’ fandom is known — impressed online.
The adorable parody video, juxtaposed against the original, has taken the internet by storm.

Although the juxtaposed version went viral, the original spoof version shared on YouTube is sans the Korean stars of the band — RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook.
Shared by SuriNoel on YouTube, the cover video features four-legged stars Raon, Soul, Noel, Iz and Suri. Grooving to the band’s second English song, many opined the animals too seem to be BTS fans.
The video reminded many BTS fans about the group’s rapper Suga, aka Min Yoongi, who is often likened with cats for his demeanour.

With Butter, “Among groups, BTS has landed its first four No. 1s the fastest since the Jackson 5 in 1970,” according to Billboard. The success of ‘Butter’ follows ‘Dynamite’, ‘Life Goes On’ and a remix of ‘Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)’, all three tracks that earned the No 1 spot on Hot 100. “BTS is the first group with a trio of No. 1 entrances; no other group has more than one,” Billboard had said last week.
