In “Seven Psychopaths," the CBS Films action comedy debuting Friday, a struggling screenwriter inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends kidnap a gangster's beloved Shih Tzu.

That’s a pretty cool idea, but can you imagine how cool it would be if cats did the kidnapping? Jim Tozzi, an alumnus of Adult Swim, took that flight of fancy and made this "Seven Psychocats" video.

In case you’re interested, the trailer from the real film, directed by London playwright and Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin McDonagh ("In Bruges") and starring Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, is below.

There are red-band versions of both, but those are NSFW.
