What's up pussycat?
Cats are big on the internet. We all know that.
So the popularity of this Kitty Kommercial should probably not come as a surprise.
It definitely falls into the so bad it's good category. But what sent it viral (so to speak) was a bit of love on Reddit.
Since it hit the Reddit front page it has racked up well over four million YouTube views.

Break free with Adidas
This film has gone totally viral while I've been away on holiday in New Zealand.
And is it any wonder?
Beautifully made and a genuine tugger of heartstrings. I doubt Adidas could ever make something as genuinely emotive as this piece by fourth year film student Eugen Merher.
Watching the old guy hold back the nurse as the hero runs free reminded me a lot of the closing scene from Cuckoos Nest where the Chief breaks the window with the water fountain.
What a great ad to kick start 2017 on BrandDNA. If only it was an actual ad...

Farewall Mr Waldie
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Brit creative Alan Waldie.
In the early part of my career I had a VHS tape of D&AD winners that a pinched from the TV production department during my work experience at McCann.
After much research I came to know the names of the people behind my favourite spots.
One of them was Alan Waldie who sadly passed away recently.
This 'My Fair Lady' inspired spot is one of my faves of his.
