Is the twist that a giant plastic snake didn't shoot out of the hole? Because that's what I was expecting.

The cat didn't want the lid to be closed. He wanted to play.

What was that the lid of? Was smoke coming out of it?

I think it's more like "Playing at Contrary Cat is Playing at Contrary"

It's where the giant plastic snake lives and breathes. Or so I thought.

I think it's a humidifier.

First, that cat does not want all lids to be closed; that cat wants control of that lid. This is a less global and more all-encompassing desired than you had led us to believe.

Second, I thought the cat was sitting on a paper shredder, and I had a horrified anticipation of what the "twist" was. I am glad to see that I was wrong.

The twist is the cat is genuinely self aware. Check out the look he gives the cameraman at the end, he is like "good,now leave it closed, I told you I didn't want you messing with my humidifier, you know how my sinuses get"

Humidifier/ steam, I believe.

I am still waiting for the surprising twist

The twist is that, once the lid was closed, the cat OPENED IT OMG

NO WAY!

(also, at about that same time, a man in a gorilla suit walks by the camera. It's nuts.)

He who fights with lid-openers must take care lest he thereby become a lid-opener. If you gaze for long into an opened humidifier lid, the open humidifier lid gazes also into you.

Shiro vs the Chair
That cat looks like a Gremlin. Its name should be Gizmo.

Would love to see a battle between that cat and this cat or this cat. Would all the containers end up open or closed?

Reminds me of the useless machine.

The lid stays SHUT.

Oh dang, did it die?
Sniff sniff.
Chewy edge. Aha.
Oooh, steeam, cool.

Jocelmeow's posted video of a cat opening lids to get to cat food remind me of this cat I had once who learned how to open doors by turning the knob with her paws. She also repurposed household objects as tools (for example she used to knock down a yardstick that hung on the kitchen wall and swipe it under the fridge to retrieve lost toys). I did not train her to do those things.

I think the only reason cats haven't taken over the world yet is that running the world would cut too much into nap time.

It's also because they have not yet figured out how to isolate and destroy all sources of distracting bits of stringys.

It the comments it says that it's a "stove" or in non Japanese English... a space heater.

That second one is (very nearly) called Mi-go. It wants all brain cylinders to remain closed.
