Ah, whack-a-mole, that fun childhood arcade game where the only goal is to smash all the moles back down into their holes. No one ever felt sorry for the little plastic rodents, but what if they were actual kitties? Take a look at this video featuring kittens in their own version of the classic game. (Don’t worry, no kitties were whacked in the making of this video!)

Posted on Facebook by Thanasak Masosot of Bangkok, Thailand, the video has been getting a lot of attention from netizens all over the world. The game is simple, just stick a bunch of little kittens in a cardboard box with holes cut out on top and bop them on the head when they try to escape.

It starts out absolutely adorable: Things are fine, cats are being bopped on the head, and good times seem to be had by all. But then one escapes…


…and kitties start getting smashed left and right:

Ok, so maybe it’s not quite the kitty massacre the still-shots make it out to be, but things do get a little rough. Take a look at the full video and decide whether or not these cats seem to be enjoying their box adventure.
