Toy quadcopter drones are harmless, but since they are tiny buzzing machines with flashing lights, they’re totally a cat‘s worst enemy.

One cat owner decided to torment his pet by flying a quadcopter nearby, alternately terrifying the cat and causing an adorable cat-vs.-drone showdown. Can the kitty bat its evil robot nemesis out of the air? Kind of—but not before hiding under the table for most of the encounter.

The Michael Bay-style explosion effect is what really brings this video together.
