Viral Commercial: Animal Shelter’s Low-Budget Cat Ad Is Purr-fectly Funny!

I absolutely love this ad – like fur real!

With the right amount of creativity, it’s really not impossible for a commercial to go viral online – even if you only have a limited budget to produce it. Take it from Furkids, an animal rescue organization in Atlanta, Georgia, that recently scored a viral hit with a short but genuinely funny cat commercial.

The video stars Paul Preston going around the animal shelter, endorsing the cats to potential owners using the approach of a used car salesman.

His ‘marketing pitches’ are absolutely hilarious that even the staff filming the ad couldn’t help but chuckle in the background.

This, of course, is a great feat in itself considering Preston isn’t a comedian by profession. He actually works as a rental property contractor who just happens to have a healthy sense of humor! His sister, who volunteers at Furkids, came up with the idea for the cat commercial and decided to recruit her brother.

“The 2016 model is compatible with windows,” quips Preston at one point.

Simply entitled ‘Kitty Kommercial,’ the video was later uploaded on YouTube and it eventually went viral from there.

In a recent blog post, Samantha Shelton, CEO and founder of Furkids, admitted that the video went above and beyond their own expectations.

“We had no idea how broadly our message had spread until Wednesday morning, when we woke up to a flood of emails, calls and social media postings unlike anything we had ever experienced in our 15-year history.

“Without a doubt, the attention is far beyond anything our organization could realistically wish for…

“The result has been a nice uptick in donations, gifts, volunteer applications, and adoption applications—all of which we need, because it takes a constant stream of donations and support for our hungry Furkids.”

The hilarious ad was entirely improvised and so it only took half an hour to film.

Study Reveals that Chickens Are Not as Dumb as We Think They Are

Definitely not “bird-brained.”

By

It's about time we see chickens in a different light.

Chickens might just be as smart as other animals, as revealed by a recent study - a far cry from the intellectually unimpressive fowls that we have perceived them to be. According to research, chickens are able to demonstrate behavior suggestive of a certain level of intelligence. For example, roosters call out to hens and pretend that they found food and lure them into having sex.

Dr. Lori Marino, an animal behavior expert, says that such behavior is a manifestation of "Machiavellian intelligence."

Amazing Dog Guarded His Injured Best Friend on Train Track for Two Days

Loyal dog guards his injured friend on a freezing train track for two days.

By

We often hear stories about the loyalty of man’s best friend. They often rescue humans in danger even at the cost of their own lives. However, this story is remarkably unique because it shows the friendship of two dogs under a tight situation.

It was a freezing Christmas Day in Tseglovka, Ukraine when Denis Malafeyev received an urgent call about a pair of male and female dogs on a train track. One of the dogs was hurt, and could not move away from the track. The other dog did not leave the injured female dog’s side and shielded her whenever a train passed the tracks. When he heard the train’s signal, he would quickly go over and lie on top of her, as they press their heads on the ground while the train ran over them. According to witnesses, the two dogs were on the track for almost two days.

The two dogs were on the freezing train tracks for two days.
