ASPCA’s Awesome ‘Hovercat’ Encourages Us to Adopt Pets
In what is obviously a response to the creepy ‘cat-copter,’ the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has come out with a video ad showing you how one can levitate a cat without attaching propellers to each of its paws.
For those who aren’t aware of what spurred the ASPCA, a Dutch artist turned his dead, taxidermied cat into a freaky remote-controlled ‘cat copter.’ Obviously the animal protection agency thought that wasn’t a nice way for a cat to live its afterlife. So to convince others thinking about doing the same to their live cats, the ASPCA made this video telling us how much fun we could have just letting cats be once we’re out of our homes.
Starring a cat ABC’s Dan Harris adopted, the video is simply an edited music video with shots of the cat frozen in the air and all sorts of other effects to make it look like the cat is levitating. If we were to take a guess, most of the shots were reversed effects of the cat being dropped. Because, ahem, we’ve already done that.
Oh, the video also aims at encouraging us to adopt animals, so go do that. You’ll be glad you did.
