"Headless Cat" Ad Backfires on Ford

Reply Wed 21 Apr, 2004 05:34 pm
Seems that this internet ad has caused Ford a lot of grief in the U.K.:

(LONDON) Ford Motor Co. is upset by the release of an Internet advertisement that depicts the decapitation of a computer-animated cat by a power moonroof hatch, saying it didn't authorize the clip


You can access the offending clip from the website. Hit the "Real" on the right of the page to play.

What do you think?

I've had it for a week and it made me nauseous. I just thought it was a prank like the free cat photo. Admittedly, I did torture my cat loving housemate with it.

Let me add that I never for a moment believed a car company had produced it.

I don't blame Ford for being pissed.

It's pretty gross, (but I knew that it wasn't done with a real cat.) So why did I find it hilarious? Very Happy

I guess Craven is going to buy a Sportska quite soon.
