Have You Seen This? The best cat commercial of all time

Posted January 7

THE CAT KINGDOM — We always want to know what commercials are going to premiere during the Super Bowl.

It's exciting to find out what companies spent millions of dollars on a 30-second spot. While these grandiose ads can be incredibly clever at times, I don't think any of them hold a candle to this gem from FurKids in Atlanta, Ga.

FurKids is a volunteer animal shelter that wanted to make a cheap commercial in hopes of getting people to adopt some pets. A regular volunteer at the shelter had the idea to cast her brother, Paul Preston, in the commercial because he's a funny guy. He's not a comedian and doesn't even work at the shelter. Preston is a contractor who happens to know how to tell a joke or two.

This commercial has terrible audio, bad camera work and the camerawoman won't stop laughing, but somehow that all makes this hilarious commercial even better. Preston is a riot and the Sarah McLachlan song at the end is nothing short of brilliant.

FurKids was just hoping to draw some attention to their little shelter, but instead they have become a viral sensation and the views on YouTube just keep climbing.

While I love this ridiculous commercial from start to finish, I do have to say that the "inflatable-wavy arm guy" is the real triumph here.

John has grown up around movies and annoys friends and family with his movie facts and knowledge. John also has a passion for sports and pretty much anything awesome and it just so happens that these are the three things he writes about.
