A (fake) Pizza Hut in Japan is staffed entirely by cats.

This is absurd. There is no way that a large, respectable chain would risk tarnishing its brand by permitting a major franchise location to -- YOU'RE A KITTY!

They could not possibly make worse pizza than the regular Pizza Hut.

Those cats are not very good at running a pizza place.

Japan gets Pizza Cat. We get Dumb Starbucks. I think we're losing.

This is disgusting, shame on you metafilter for supporting these kinds of health code violations! I have summoned the puppy constabulary and they will arrive shortly to put an end to this madness.

Hime is obviously the tech genius of that crew.

Many of these are just "yep, it's a cat!" and aren't much better than just looking at real cats for 30 seconds, but I give this one high marks for being extra-concentrated high-power "it's a cat!"

I bet these were fun to make once they found cats that don't mind wearing that stuff.

if own a cat, you know about the omnipresence of cat hair so really a kitty pizza place should be run by hairless cats

They got nothing on Neko Ramen.

Holy shitballs, there's a feature-length live-action adaptation of Neko Ramen? Mind: Blown.

I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their Pizza Huts, or why.

What? No reference to that anime masterpiece that was Samurai Pizza Cats?

I dunno. In this one, they look more like they're contemplating furry revenge once the camera guys fall asleep.

I know it well. 'You gave me chicken pouches instead of salmon for dinner. I will wait until you lie vulnerable in your ape lair, then I shall slowly creep up and rub my butt on your face while purring like a chainsaw in your ear - then, as you thrash awake to realise the horror, I shall pounce on your newly exposed toes as if they were fleeing mice and attempt to playfully devour them'.

Looks like Meowmino's is facing some stiff competition.

I'm guessing their special is purrperoni pizza.

Noteworthy that none of them show the cats making pizza.

I assume that's based on the marketing principle of "don't show the sausage being made" and the new principle of "don't show the sausage being made by cats."

I taste-tested your anchovies. They were fine. All of them.

> "We're not quite sure of the actual point of it all"

not shocking that an ad publication would not understand why someone would do something without some sort of clear agenda behind it.

Did somebody say "homemade subtitles for the unreleased-in-English second DVD-only set of Neko Ramen shorts"? Because I have just the unlisted thing

Also, the live-action thing is reasonably good, especially if you notice that Taisho is played by Amuro Ray. There was also an adaptation back into comic form done by the original artist/writer.
