Downloads Are Now Fun Thanks to the Nyan Cat Slider Bar

Right before the original Nyan Cat video disappeared from YouTube, the site set up an adorable feature where instead of a normal slider bar showing your progress, you had a mini Nyan Cat shimmying along. When YouTube pulled the video for copyright claims, I thought we’d never get to see that pint-sized adorableness again.

Enter Ben Stone, who created a program for Windows 7 called Instant Elevator Music to create a little Muzak soundtrack for downloads — then went the extra mile by adding in a Nyan track and the slider bar. I think I’m in love.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go download all of those software updates I’ve been putting off.
