The Sony C6… So simple, the cat can use it (with John Cleese)


The Sony ad people were ahead of the curve with their cat appreciation in this ad for the Sony C6 starring John Cleese and a cat. The silliness of seeing a cat using and programming a VCR is certainly worthy of the internet’s fascination with the cats and, dare I say it, is a bit Python-esque. I had a cat when I was very young and he was not capable of programming a VCR. He was what we liked to called a “free spirit” with his “leavings” and would turn just about anything in the house into his litter box.

So maybe he would have had a use for the C6, just not one we would have appreciated…
