What's weirder: Cats in wigs or Chief Acevedo in a dress?

It's almost a perfect storm for video viralness: Cats. In wigs. Glammed up and posing for photos. This 90-second piece of weird is lighting up the Vimeo world with 2,500 views already (it was only uploaded eight hours ago!). The video, with its fancy photo-friendly felines, is a promo piece for a book called Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs.

Watch the video after the jump.

And over at the Long Center here in Austin, they're getting ready to host this year's version of Texas' longest-running production of The Nutcracker. But there's a twist. Saturday night's performance will feature a very special guest: Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo. If that's not weird enough, the chief will be dawning a dress for the part of Mother Ginger in the play. The local Latino entertainment magazine Austin Vida interviewed Acevedo about his Nutcracker role. Check it out here.
