Walmart does the creepiest cat ad ever for X-Mas.


(Via Adrants)
Jesus Creepy Christ. A cat with a human mouth. Yodeling Jingle Bells. And look at those fucking eyes. You've scared away what little holiday spirit existed inside of me, Walmart. This makes me hate the Brooks Brothers singing lambs (who also sang Jingle Bells) slightly less. This thing is just a web video now. But the plan is to roll out a version of it on terrestrial TV. You'll know when that happens: you'll hear the sound of many children simultaneously screaming like they did at birth.
Ad agency: The Martin Agency, which used to be a good agency. A cat? Really? Yeah, I get it, you're "making fun" of the whole Internet Cat thing. How out of the (litter) box.

Animals with human mouths - always weird. The BBC make it so weird it works. It's the fox at the end that gets me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JiM9aM0rRU

And with a little bit of unimagination it will parlay into an automated stuffed toy... or has that predictably already happened? I wouldn't know. Walmart and I don't mix.

@ Lara

Something about a 'bologna?'

What in a godforsaken English hunting killing field does the fox say at the end?

Much creepier with the sound turned off.

The fox says, "Find out about it online, yeah?"

OMG I'm going to have nightmares tonight. But it did say "Merry Christmas", not "Happy Holidays"! Maybe the Jesus crowd finds this "cute"??
