Popcat, the original click game, was a creation of Briton Edward Halls. Popcat features the image of a cat that bares a wide grin with every click.

“Popcat” went viral in Thailand on August 15, when Thailand, which had been locked in a neck-and-neck battle with Taiwan, took first place with 15.8 billion clicks on August 16, within 24 hours.

Thailand currently tops the game’s global leader board.
Inspired by “Popcat”, a Thai website developer has created “Popyut”, revolving around Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

On the "Popyut" website prayut.click, the PM changes his posture every time users click with their mouse or tap on their phone.

The latest update released on "Popyut" on Friday lets users choose their province. Prayut will also open his mouth like a cat and will say “Thailand will win” every 100 clicks.
