This video is an uplifting, magical mystery. Much like the heart-wrenching tale of King Kong and his self-imposed guardianship of Jane, the burly firefighter is a gentle giant saving a delicate feline from certain death.
How still the kitten lies — a delicate form ravaged by noxious fumes — before it receives reanimating blasts of oxygen. Perhaps the cat will one day grow into a giant armored lion that swears a life’s oath of gratitude to the firefighter and wears a GoPro of its own while rushing into infernos.
As an aside, this iMovie template never grows old. It imbues even the shakiest of footage with a cinematic and whimsical quality that other home videos just can’t rival. If you have any doubts, check out this other video proving that time travel is real.
