You might expect the security at the G20 summit to be scarily intense, but apparently it’s no match for a pair of housecats.

The two cats snuck onstage at the summit in Turkey this weekend, wandering around and meowing in front of the flags of the Group of 20 nations.

We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the most popular video to come out of the summit this week. It must be embarrassing to be a world leader and get upstaged by a pair of rebellious cats.
