I wanted more cats selectively knocking one thing off the shelf.

The soundtrack is based on Space Cats - Magic Fly, which (I discovered only recently to the delight of my partner and I) is, itself, a cover of Space - Magic Fly, which originally came out in 1977.

I want to watch German grocery store ads all day now, provided they have cats in them.

That's a sentence I never thought I'd type.

If you don't want to go to some weird clickbait website with a bazillion ads, and who-the-hell-knows how much malware, that makes a living off of the ad revenue for videos that are nearly a year old that they didn't create, here is a direct link to the ad from the grocery store chain in question on YouTube. All the cats, none of the dodgy javascript.

That design on the wall in the opening shot looks like an angry whale.

Stands to reason it's a marmie running the store. They tend to be bossy.

My cat heard the music and rushed outside to defend the back yard from neighbor cats.

Is everybody ignoring it, or like the original webspammer completely clueless about how many of these cats are actually homages to/steals from Famous Internet Cats?

And way to miss the "I don't know who put those cats in a supermarket or why" joke...

I was counting the famous internet cats!

Two of my cats were hanging out on or near the desk, and they were not. pleased. by the meow music.

Not cats, but ... Gary!"

This is fantastic.

There is also: Making-of Netto-Katzen if you want a peek behind the scenes (mostly in English, some cat-wrangling explanation in German).

If anyone wants a translation of the German bits from this video (it's delightful):

Suzanne from Netto: Today we're shooting our new Netto film...in the smallest Netto store in the world.

Andreas the Creative Director: We're shooting with mega-stars today -- icons of pop culture, with billions of fans worldwide. I'm referring, of course, to cats.

Katja the Cat Trainer: When filming with animals it's always prudent to be nice to them. So you have to watch how long it takes, how the feel of the set is. So we had to be careful about the rooms for the cats. Whenever one works with cats, it's absolutely necessary that each group of cats, or each cat, has a room that really is their own room.

Greg_Ace That design on the wall in the opening shot looks like an angry whale.

Indeed. I thought that was a super clever design; a stylized apple and carrot that ends up looking like an angry whale. Mr. Sparkle-ey!

Thanks for the translation sondern!

I came across this Hot Topic shirt yesterday and thought the meta-ness was outstanding.
