Doritos + Cat Yodeling = Win!

Most people know me well enough to know that my interest in Super Bowl weekend is limited to watching Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl. That, plus the Kitty Half Time Show, usually does it for me.

This year, Doritos has put together a contest offering folks a chance to have their commercial aired during the Super Bowl.  Contestants upload their videos which are available for viewing for a few months, and then in early January the five finalist videos will be posted for public voting. 

And still you ask - why do I care?  Because our favorite cat-hair covered engineer has chosen to give it a shot! I'll let him tell you:

As Paul recently mentioned, his video is doing fairly well, it's even ahead of a video that shows just boobs. (And the idea that we might actually live in a world where cat yodeling gets more attention than boobs just cracks me up.) But every person that watches his video helps!

So to see this award-winning cinematic triumph, go here. And if you are completely unfamiliar with the wonder that is cat yodeling and thinking, "who the hell is this guy in the red shirt and what's the deal with the cats?", then please check out An Engineer's Guide to Cats!

I love when you post about these guys! They are so much fun! I will definitely have to vote for the cat yodeling when it comes to the site and I hope they win. Would like to see them on TV during the Super Bowl. Thanks for sharing. xxoo

I'm not able to pull this video up, but I'll definitely keep trying.

A few thoughts in the meantime . . .

1) I have SIX CATS and this guy likes cats. I sense a love match.

2) Has anyone else noticed that this man has extremely large hands? I really sense a love match

3) KIDDING . . . kind of.

Anywho, I'm off to check out his website. Thanks for the info!

Kath - I am eternally in your debt for sharing this guy and his videos.

I just spent the last, oh, six or so minutes laughing so hard that my husband kept telling me to shut up already.

HOLY CATS that "An Engineer's Guide to Cats" is funny. When he employs Corporal Snuggling on the cats, I like to have died from laughter.

Thank you thank you thank you!

This guy is a genius! And not just because he's an engineer and stuff...
