Teaser Invited Viewers To Guess What Happened Next On Twitter

Published on

Editor's Pick

There's nothing the U.K. likes better than a good cat ad -- and this spot, for subscription-free TV provider Freeview, teams the kitty with a budgie for added entertainment. As the two serenade each other to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's You're All I Need To Get By, their owner looks on in amazement as the narrator gives us the message that "entertainment's even better when it's free." The spot is by Leo Burnett London, and was directed by Ne-o through Stink. It was teased before launch via Twitter, where people were encouraged to enter a competition to guess what happened next after the cat opened the birdcage door.
