If you like cats and cheesy car salesmen, boy do we have a treat for you.
Furkids Animal Rescues and Shelters, no-kill shelters in Georgia, recently released a commercial encouraging people to come pick up cats and kittens from their shelter.
The video, titled ‘Kitty Kommercial,’ features Paul Preston, from Atlanta, trying to get you to adopt cats by advertising them like used cars – and it’s paw-mazing.
He makes a convincing case. They’ve got cats for everyone. “You like black cats? We’ve got the blackest cats you’ve ever seen.” Not your thing? “You like sleepy kitties? We’ve got the sleepiest kitties you’ve ever seen.” Still not your thing? “You don’t like tails? Get a cat without one! No problem!”
Basically, they’ve got a cat for you – even if you don’t want one.
It goes on like this – along with a few clips of high-fiving cats and a woman pretending to be an inflatable wacky waving tube man – in the strangest, best cat adoption commercial you’ve ever seen.
Furkids told The Huffington Post the video came about when Helen asked her brother, Preston, to take part in a used-car-salesman type of video. Preston, a contractor with a rental property management company, willingly agreed.
The entire video was completely improvised at one of Furkids’ facilities and was shot in about 30 minutes.
For a full three minutes of cats doing a hilarious amount of nothing, the commercial is actually genuinely funny, which is a refreshing surprise.
