Fancy Feast Debuts New "Storybook Wedding" Commercial



Back in February, Fancy Feast debuted a romantic new commercial called "The Engagement," starring starry-eyed couple Sean and Lisa. The tear jerking spot chronicled Lisa's love for her family's Persian cat, leading up to Sean's heart-tugging, kitten-packed proposal, that melted even the hardest of hearts.

Fast forward to June, and I was fortunate enough to be on the set of the sequel to the hugely popular spot, where our dashing leading couple finally got to take a walk down the aisle in their very own storybook wedding. This three-minute long extended cut of the commercial, called "Something Borrowed," showcases the dazzling couple on their special day, and finally reveals the secret of how their new kitten factors into the affair.



Watching the commercial now is exciting for me because I really had no idea how it was going to turn out, and I must say it's still a thrill to know I got the chance to cuddle with these amazing cats on set! I love how the kitty's heart charm collar was included into Lisa's bridal attire (hence the "Something Borrowed"), although I kind of wish she was IN the wedding too (However, I'm happy to report she's going along for the honeymoon!)


Based on the success of these commercials, I have a feeling there's a lot more in store for Sean, Lisa, and their unnamed kitten, and think it's only a matter of time before baby makes four for this family, made in cat food commercial heaven. (Also, can I have their house? Wow!)

In addition, I have a podcast where you can listen to my interviews with celebrity event planner Colin Cowie, who arranged all of the details of the magical day, and Fancy Feast cat handler Karen Thomas, who gave me the scoop on the the beautiful kittens used in the clip!

Updated to add: Wondering what the song in the commercial is? It's Made For Each Other by Emilie Mover.

That must have been so much fun to watch. And that cat just gets more adorable, I love the way she toddles along!! =^..^=

Marcia said...

I JUST LOVE THE KITTY!!!!!!! How cute?? I am glad the Kitty goes on the honeymoon. I mean, I won't leave my babies for anything!! (except when I have been in the hospital a few times, but signed myself out!!)My only concern is that I saw "Lisa" in a yogurt commercial with John Stamos! I LOVE how Kitty is sitting with her legs apart- my Donny does that!! Persians are just so cute!!

Catsparella said...

@Marcia LOL! What would Sean say?? I just went and checked out the commercial, and as a greek yogurt fan, I will say Oikos is pretty good.

This is mostly amusing to be as just two weeks ago I was talking to the lady who is going to do the flowers for my wedding about putting my kitty and puppy's baby collars into the bouquet, so I will have something blue as well as hot pink zebra striped going on.
Also-Bruce Boxlightner! you just made me miss Babylon 5. I'll just show my nerd self out.

Catsparella said...

@monkeychild Aww! That's such a cute idea!

Great to see the finished product. Kudos to their ad Agency Avrett Free Ginsberg. They really went all out in this pricey production.

Mary Matthews said...

Lovely! And I adored the honeymoon video too! It's good to know that Sean has a great voice. It seemed like such a surprise when the music stopped and they spoke in the honeymoon video:)

Esme said...

Love this storyline!

That is so cool! I can't wait to bring Truffle home (a silver shaded Persian) next week and I'm so sad we lost her brother, Beignet, to cancer from a vaccination last week.

Where can I get the grey mother of bride dress

Susan Graham said...

YES! I'd like to know, too -- who makes the Mother of the Bride dress? It's fabulous!!!

Catsparella said...

Hi all! I have a message out to Purina about the dress - I'll let you know if they are able to find out! Please keep in mind the commercial was shot in June, so it may no longer be available. Thanks for stopping by!

Susan Graham said...

Thanks Catsparella; whatever you can find out would be most appreciated! I don't know why attractive MOB dresses are so hard to come by.

Catsparella said...

@Anonymous and Susan - Good news! I was able to find out some info about the dress! Hope this helps!:

The MOB dress was Adrianna Papell.
It was a silver stretch taffeta 2 PC with floor length skirt and separate pleated top. Gorgeous on her.
We purchased it at Nordstrom. Available online and in finer stores.

Susan Graham said...

THANK YOU SO MUCH Catsparella!!!!

Catsparella said...

@Susan You're welcome! Good luck!

Margie said...

Catsparella!! When is the next video? This made me cry....

Catsparella said...

@Margie Your guess is as good as mine! I will let you know if I hear any updates :)

I am so tired of that commercial that I won't buy any fancy feast product. I'll buy Friskies now

Ken M said...

Was that Bruce Boxleitner as the Father of the Bride? One of my favorite actors.

Catsparella said...

@Ken Yep, it's him!

Katie Isabella said...
