Funniest video ever, plus, at least one strike for these guys
Antidote here (though it may make you want to give the perpetrators of the above something more like 3 strikes.) Recommend dose: watch until you are laughing as hard as the people who were there (about three times).
UPDATE: Apparently the cat snuff video ad was actually made by the British advertising firm Ogilvy & Mather, working for Ford UK. Managment of both companies claim they nixed the ad idea when it was first proposed, but that employees made the video anyway. (Story here.) They also claim that the cat in the video is animated rather than real, which is most implausible. If law enforcement would confiscate Ogilvy's tapes, the veracity of animation claim could be easily determined. If the cat is real, the fact that such an ad was discussed beforehand proves that the cat was not killed accidentally. Ogilvy should be pressed to make its video-tape and computer data available so that independent experts can determine for themselves whether Ogilvy employees committed a crime.
