My Neighbor Totoro's Iconic Catbus Scene Gets The Oculus Rift Treatement

(Video Link)

The Catbus scene from Hayao Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro is one of the most iconic scenes in anime history, and even middle aged adults get a childlike look of wonder in their eyes when they see that strange cat-shaped bus come bounding down the road with a Cheshire cat grin plastered across his puss.
