Shelter Had No Idea Their Low-Budget ‘Kitty Kommerical’ Would Go Viral

Commercials and ad breaks usually feature loud and annoying advertisements selling you cars, perfume, food, insurance, and medication of all kinds – mainly antidepressants.

But then there are the other ads you’ll sometimes see, the really sad ASPCA commercials that feature all the suffering animals in need – all set to the tune of a Sarah McLoughlin song. These commercials never fail to make you cry, as well as want to adopt all the stray animals.

But the Furkids Animal Shelter, a rescue based in Atlanta, Georgia, has come up with a solution to the normal ads that you see on TV. They produced a “Kitty Kommercial,” an adorable improvised skit that has gone viral.

Even though it’s a low-budget concept and only took 30 minutes in total to film, it still gets its point across to adopt a pet. And the best part is that it does so with a lot of humor – no sadness anywhere in sight.

However, he actually is a contractor for an Atlanta rental property management company. But after watching this video, he might have a career in comedy after all. Even though he stars in the commercial, the idea was his sister’s. Definitely the kind of commercial more shelters should think about making for their shelter pets who need adopting.
