Back Market: Sorry, cats

TV Commercial Review

Heart or Humor


Good VFX

The advertising agency Buzzman, Paris, creates a commercial with many cats for Back Market. Back Market is a business refurbishing electronic devices.

Directed by Tom Kuntz, the advert message is, “No offense to the cats, but from now on, they are not the only ones to have multiple lives.”

The ad combines the movie The Birds (1963) by Alfred Hitchcock with World War Z (with Brad Pitt): cats that destroy devices, cats that attack people, and cats that climb over each other like zombies.
