Contrary To Popular Belief, Cats Are Very Good At Selling Pizza

1 comments

You're likely unfamiliar with the nuances of Japanese advertising culture. But, you are familiar with the way brands try to sell you things in America. So, you know full well that the only way you're gonna buy something is if it's sold to you with sexual imagery (subliminal or overt is fine) or with cats.

It's not lost on you that cats are technically naked, either.

So, when Pizza Hut in Japan needed a new theme for its ads, it literally Googled "best video ever," found this kitten ad, and said, "Right. We're goin' with cats. And, just for good measure, let's set it to music that may or may not be from the Hunger Games soundtrack, because that shit is trending — hard."

The result is a series of 12 — TWELVE! — commercials in which cats have replaced humans behind Pizza Hut counters. Except, cats can't make pizzas, or answer phones, or handle online orders, because they lack opposable thumbs and an understanding of customer satisfaction. So, really the only difference between these feline workers and a real-life Pizza Hut employee is the cat wasn't also your high school's quarterback. (Jezebel)





A ringing phone is like a lullaby to the unsuspecting pizza employee.




In all fairness to this cat, job postings for data entry and pizza delivery are often indistinguishable.




Roomba cat practices great discipline, vacuuming up additional toppings instead of eating them.




"WHAT IS IT? WHAT WAS THAT?"




Overachiever cat attempts to wake sleepy coworkers, in vain.




Uniform inspection goes horribly awry.




It's difficult to select an employee of the month when they're all so talented and enthusiastic.




"MY PRECIOUSSSS."




30 MINUTES OR LESS, THEY SAY. WHAT BLACK MAGIC IS THIS?




Yes, this is more my speed.




"Dude, if there's a drug test today, I'm screwed."
