By means of an ironic view, the video Rat Race employs cats and dogs as metaphors for eastern and western societies. Cats and dogs being exposed while eating, urinating, defecating, and interacting with each other. The video studies grounds that affiliate these two animals. However, Rat Race also indicates the differences between their environment.
