In an attempt to illustrate that the AT&T Samsung Infuse offers, "Colors so real, it's almost unreal," the cell phone provider employs an impossibly fuzzy orange kitten with a loud purr and a tiny, heart-shattering "mew!" to do its bidding.
The little pumpkin colored chap chases after a ball of string that doesn't really exist (a metaphor for life, perhaps?), while all I can think about is HOW MUCH BETTER this is than their current "Spider" commercial that scares the crap out of me every time (I don't mind the spider so much as the woman screaming bloody murder.)

Meanwhile, in this second commercial for the Galaxy Tab, Samsung once again plays up the naïveté of felines, as the tablet is used to lure a disgruntled looking Persian out of a tree using realistic fish imagery.
I don't think he's buying it
While they may easily be thwarted by new technology, at least someone at Samsung recognizes that cats are smart enough to sell electronics!
