Cats with thumbs – terrifying or genius?
Cravendale has produced one of the most entertaining adverts of recent times with this little journey into an alternate universe where cats have finally developed opposable thumbs and can now rightfully take over the world! Add a suitably ominous soundtrack and a fantastic voiceover by Tim Curry and they’re on to a winner!
As is seemingly the norm these days, the idea goes far beyond a single TV ad as you can follow the gang leader Bertrum through his own Twitter feed ( http://twitter.com/#!/bertrumthumbcat) or on his Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/bertrumthumbcat). A particularly nice feature is the ability to ask a question about what Thumbcats can or can’t do, which is then answered by video on Youtube. For example, can Thumbcats play poker? Here’s the answer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ueTTgPwNxc.
Good stuff indeed.
