Breaking: Cat all a-twitter over Bird

So we're thinking more U.S. companies need to get into the running for Best Cat Commercial.

The U.S. is now officially two outstanding TV ads behind the Brits so far this year... and it's only March!

You've probably seen the way cool #SingitKitty spot filmed for British telecom company, Three. It's been all over facebook and twitter, and Katie & Waffles did an excellent feature on it yesterday.

Here's the second one, again with a hashtag. (#catandbudgie)

It was released just a few days ago and was created by the agency that makes all our Hallmark Hall of Fame ads. You know, the ones that make you cry? (yeah, you know they do...  ;-)



We think the folks at Leo Burnett are pretty talented. What say you?

(P.S. They even worked a bachelor with a cat into the storyline of one of our spots a bit ago. We'll have to show it to you sometime.)

Oh and now that you've seen the spot, can you tell the budgie in yesterday's cat art post was FrankenBudgie? Yeah he was WAY too big for the photo's scale. But hey, we figured he needed the advantage over Faraday.

    1. Allie: Mother keeps going back between the two. She can't decide which one she likes best!! The little girl's energy is hard to beat, but this one is more obvious as far as who the ad is for (MOL!).

    Psst Faraday! You might want to stop having that FrankenBudgie on your head. It could take out your brains if he sneezed! Those feet of his look like talons!

    1. Hi Caren, we didn't see it, rats! Usually we're up on all of Leo's new productions. You must have found it right after it released, they posted a mid-Feb release date. We saw it on Molly the Wally's blog, too, last night - right after we'd scheduled this post! We think it's WAY cool!!

  14. That’s a great commercial. I count on blogs and FB to see ads since TW and I don’t watch TV. Pop only watches sickening stuff. Heh heh! Sorry about that.
