Longcat is loooooooooooong, and one ambitious Android user is hoping to make him even longer come this Saturday. A flashmob is currently being recruited to meet at 4:00 PM on September 18th at the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco to bump their phones together and create a potentially world record setting (if there is such a thing) Longcat. The whole thing is being arranged around an app freely available in the Android Market that will stretch Longcat complete with cute kitten noises over any number of Android screens lined up in a row. To get an idea of a much smaller version of what is hoped to be accomplished on Saturday see the video below:

The whole event will be documented on video, and it might just be crazy enough to work. If you want to get involved you can take a look at the original craigslist listing for all of the details. If you aren’t in San Francisco, don’t worry. You can still download the app and make Longcats with your friends. Do it for the lulz!
