Germany Just Dropped A Cat Commercial That's Beyond Weird

Look, we all know that commercials come in all kinds. There are sad commercials, sentimental commercials, happy commercials, nostalgic commercials, political commercials, and even creepy commercials trying to sell you some erectile dysfunction medication. Then, there are the weird commercials, including the ones you can't tear your eyes away from even though you have no idea what the heck is happening. We've got one of those today. It's from a German company, and it features cats shopping at the grocery.

Netto is a discount grocery store, and this strangely adorable cat commercial was created for the company's German stores. In the video, the cats get their own mini shopping carts and wander around the store picking up tuna and "veggie mice." One cat begins meowing when another feisty feline grabs the last item on the shelf. The commercial also is filled with techno music that features a bunch of weird meow noises. You can't make this stuff up.

Honestly, this commercial is really strange and perhaps would have been better without the disco music, but it also features adorable felines playing with soda boxes and pretending to check out at the grocery register. It's like every adorable cat calendar and cat video rolled up into one short commercial. How could you shut the commercial off when moments like this are happening?

Or how about the clothed cat checking out other cats at the register?

In the States, the majority of big budget, highly impactful commercials go out into the universe around the holidays or around the Super Bowl, but it's nice to know that Netto found a way to bring in the views during a time of year that's not really known for commercials. It's also particularly genius that the company managed to corner the cat market in a ad for a discount grocery store. These marketers have their acts together.

If you'd like to check out some other really weird commercials, go ahead and give that odd commercial with a shirtless Jeff Goldblum a watch. There's also a weird Katy Perry commercial and another with a creepy stuffed fox. We could go on, but why would we since you already have this wild cat-oriented commercial in front of you? You're purry welcome.
