German Supermarket Commercial Is the Cat’s Meow

Netto-cat-commercial

Even though most commercials are irritating at best, every once in a while, you come across a gem that you find yourself watching over and over again. A commercial for Netto, a German supermarket chain, featuring cats, will leave you with a huge smile on your face.

The producers built a miniature “cat-size” Netto store that looks just like a regular store. Building the set took a little over a week. Producers made sure that everything on the set was cat-friendly. The cats either had their own room, or shared a room with cats they were already familiar with.

“I look at is as shooting in a different language,” said director Brian Lee Hughes. “We’re not in the same species, but I feel like we’re brothers and sisters.”

I don’t know what’s more fun to watch: the actual commercial, or the “making of” video. Some of the “making of” is in German, but you’ll get the gist of it even if you don’t speak the language.

Enjoy!
