A Commercial For Cats, But Will They Watch?

(Click here if you have trouble viewing the video.)

A commercial for cats? Sure, why not?

Rhett & Link gained YouTube fame by creating epic local commercials for small businesses, and now they have a new series on IFC to document their latest projects.

For an upcoming episode of "Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings," the pair teamed up with cat communicating hotel proprietor Margaret Hughes to create a commercial for the Holiday Hotel for Cats in Los Angeles.

I thought the spot was really cute, but wondered how an actual feline (with a short attention span) would react, so I enlisted my cat Charlie, a known TV aficionado (his recent favorite is the Sprint Cats commercial) for help. I don't know if he loved it, but it definitely caught his attention and he was quite taken with Betty, mother of four!

"Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings" is set to debut June 24th at 10/9C on IFC.

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

OMC this was hilarious! First of all, I think that commercial was incredibly clever...second...Charlie is one intelligent and observant cat (like his Mama!)
His reaction was priceless! He seemed to be quite intrigued.
Cody has been laying here will I played both videos and he was completely blase.

@Caren He likes watching TV in general, so I figured I'd give it a shot! Priscilla has zero interest whatsoever!

@Tamar One day I'll write a book, LOL

Great idea, our cats like to watch Tv for the odd few minutes every day so something directed at them seems purrrrrrect.
