Belgian Lotto Adverts Prove Black Cats Bring Good Luck

Black kitties are some of the sweetest and most beautiful cats I have ever met, and it always breaks my heart to hear they are most often overlooked at shelters.

This Friday the 13th, our friend Sara (aka Wonky Eye Kitty Lily's human), posted an adorable Belgian lotto commercial starring one very lucky black cat, which takes aim at the superstition that the much maligned felines bring bad fortune. I asked if she could translate the clip for us, and not only did she deliver, but she also sent over three additional ads that prove black cats are anything but unlucky!

"Basically every time there's a Friday the 13th, the Belgian national lottery holds a special draw called 'Super Lotto'," she says. "For at least 5 years now their Super Lotto TV ads have featured black cats."

This is the original video Sara posted. Translation: "And you? How do you make sure luck is on your side? This Friday 13th May you could win 5 million euros. Super Lotto, give your dreams a chance." (Check out a cute making of the video here!)

Translation: "This Friday the 13th you win with Super Lotto. So who will you thank? This Friday you could win 5 million euros. Super Lotto, give your dreams a chance."

Translation: "Don't let this chance go by. This Friday the 13th you could win 3 million euros. Super Lotto, well played!"

Translation: "Friday the 13th will be extra special thanks to Super Lotto. 5 million euros will be divided over ranking 1, 2 and 3. That makes for extra lucky people."

Thank you again to Sara for all of her help! You can find her on Facebook as Wonky Eye Kitty.
