We’ve seen our fair share of animal rescues doing creative things to help get their shelter dogs adopted, but what about shelter cats?
One animal shelter- Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, made a hilarious video to encourage people to adopt a cat. The rescue, which is an organization and group of no-kill shelters in Atlanta, Georgia created a “Kitty Kommercial” to attempt to sell you a cat.
The video shows hilarious Paul Preston, an Atlantan resident trying to sell you a car like a car salesman.
He highlights that all of the cats are self-cleaning, and the video even features a Sarah McLachlan cover at the tail end, which spoofs her British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ads.
A representative from Furkids explained to The Huffington Post that Paul isn’t a comedian, instead, a local man who works for a rental property management company. It was his sister, Helen, who volunteers at Furkids, that came up with the idea for the spoof.
We think after this video that Paul will be receiving lots of calls from Hollywood because he is seriously funny.
Apparently, the entire video was completely improvised at one of Firkins’ facilities and shot in about 30 minutes.
Furkids would not release how much it cost to produce this video, but they hinted it was comparable to “a couple cans of cat food the cat stars.”
Clearly, the shelter has a sense of humor…
