It’s Reigning Cats in the House

ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s feline friends star in a new Web video that’s launching the House of Representatives’ new YouTube channel — and it’s hipper than you think. Two cats are sniffing around Pelosi’s office in the Capitol — checking out her gavel, admiring the view of the Washington Mall — when viewers are promptly "Rickrolled." Rickrolling (no relation) is when online viewers are, without warning or explanation, shuttled to watching some of the cheesiest footage ever recorded: Rick Astley’s 1987 music video for "Never Gonna Give You Up." Maybe it’s a little 2008 for the savviest Web denizens. But for an institution that’s sometimes stuck in a different century, not a bad debut.
