Terry Richardson leaked a video of Kate Upton doing a dance called the “Cat Daddy” without her permission. Out of respect for Miss Upton’s wishes, we are not embedding the video in this article. Just so you know what video we’re talking about though, here are a series of screen captures from the video:

Terry sets up the dance that Kate is about to do. I guess Kate just thought that the notoriously skeezy Terry Richardson was going to keep this video for his private collection? At any rate, we’re not showing it here, you’d have to click through to this YouTube link to see it.

Kate begins to dance for the camera. See how her hands are blurry? That is because this is a screen capture from a video of her doing the “Cat Daddy” dance, not just a still image like this.

At the conclusion of her dance, Kate says to camera, “That’s it, that’s all you guys get, get out of here!” Clearly Kate means to indicate that she does not want Terry to release this footage online, and that if he did release it online she wouldn’t say he didn’t want her to just as a further strategy to make the footage seem illicit and therefore all the more desirable.

Right after saying “that’s all you guys get,” the video immediately rewinds and then shows a slow-motion instant replay, a meta-recognition that the owner and creator of the video is not regarding Upton’s wishes by publishing the video to both Terry’s YouTube and Vimeo.

So there you have it. We’re not posting that video here, merely reporting on the news. Sure, we’re capitalizing on the same clickbaity title and will benefit from the same increase in site traffic and SEO-y words and phrases. Words and phrases like:

  • Kate Upton
  • Kate Upton bikini
  • Kate Upton swimsuit
  • Kate Upton Terry Richardson
  • Kate Upton almost nude
  • Kate Upton almost naked
  • Kate Upton boobs
  • Kate Upton breasts
  • Kate Upton dancing in a bikini
  • Kate Upton Cat Daddy dance
  • Terry Richardson leaked video
  • Kate Upton leaked video
  • Kate Upton leaked video; a “leaked video” is sexier than an “uploaded video” don’t you think?
  • Kate Upton leaked footage Cat Daddy dance
  • Kate Upton dancing in a bikini doing the Cat Daddy dance and her boobs are there, under the bikini, you can see most of the boobs, not the nipples though because then it becomes porn, but those nipples are right there under the fabric of the bikini, Terry knows you want to see those nipples, that’s how he makes his living, we’re paying him here with our eyeballs and our clicks
  • Cat Daddy meow meow me likey Cat Daddy meow meow bad kitty

So yes, we’re benefitting the same way that sites would that directly embed that video. But still, we can take comfort in the fact that we’re honoring Kate Upton’s stated wishes that the video had not been leaked to the public.

But we’re still taking the moral high ground here. And so are you, for clicking on an article that told you right up front that we weren’t going to show you the video. You were making the respectable choice as you did your duty to inform yourself on this highly relevant news story. As a reward, here are some GIFs of the dance:

This isn’t the video of Kate Upton doing the Cat Daddy. This is just a GIF.

Good for you for settling for the lower resolution images of this moving GIF rather than clicking through to the video. Kate Upton thanks you.

You heard what Kate said, internet. “That’s all you guys get. Don’t go watch the video at this link.”

There you have it. Web journalism at its finest. You’ll have to go to Terry Richardson’s YouTube channel or perhaps Terry Richardson’s Vimeo page to see that unauthorized bikini dancing footage. We respect ourselves too much to put it here.
