Cat telecom company

If cats ran the telecom company (in a world of cats), it would sort of look like look exactly like this. (via the boing) One of you will spend the evening either transcribing this into English, or putting subtitles on it, I just know you will. Please let me know when you're done.

Well that explains why it took 3 weeks to get my cable box connected.

My wife speaks French, is a crazy cat lady and is going to love this.

I have a sudden urge to sign up for broadband service and buy a smartphone.

"chastronaute" made me giggle.

Otherwise, I dunno. I had figured phone companies are already run by cats. It would explain the "Everything here is mine" business-customer relationship.

"I have a sudden urge to sign up for broadband service and buy a smartphone." That's odd, I watched it and had an urge to sign up for another kitten and buy another litter box.

Working with real life telecom companies makes herding cats look easy.

Everyone should use kittens in marketing.

Pretty sure we're quickly headed for the kittingularity at this rate.

"Further proof."

Cats were a lot plumper back then, eh?

You should have used catnip.

Please. Rubenesque. The standards of cat beauty were different then.

If cats ran the telecom company no one could make phone calls because cats have no relevant skills.

Can I order French telephone service in Ohio? Just checking.

If I only spoke French... Actually, I think it's better not being able to understand what they're saying! :)

Bouygues Telecom just displaced my favorite cremerie on my street and I'm not too pleased about it. Nevermind there is already a BT shop about a block and a half away. I know it isn't BTs fault that the cremerie closed but it was the last place on my street that sold fresh milk (ironic considering the cat video). Ok, so the milk was always just about out of date and expensive, but the old ladies that worked there sure were nice. Even in Europe the mom and pop store is coming to an end, being displaced by massive, impersonal, profit-spinning juggernauts. Anyway, enjoy your cat video.

As per our cult lifestyle marketing plan, it is no longer "the boing" but simply "boing"

I would like to work in that building! (Also I wish more companies would realize I just want to see more cats in their commercials. Or possibly lemurs. Lemurs and cats and I promise not to skip your ad ok?)
