Kuroneko Black Cat Delivery "Neko Funjatta" (2016) 3:20 (Japan)

Black cats gets their dance on for Kuroneko Black Cat Delivery. This groovy bit of Japanese awesomeness is set to a simple song known all over the world. In Germany it's The Flea Waltz, Der Flohwalzer but it's known as the Donkey March in Hungary, the Dog Waltz in Russia, the Pig Waltz in the Czech Republic. And in Japan it's called "I stepped on the cat's tail."

Lyrics translation:

Yo yo yo, you know in many foreign countries, the song “I stepped on a cat” isn't a song about cats at all. Instead it can be the Dog waltz, the Tick March, the donkey, the duck or the monkey. There’re so many variations.
But everyone across the world loves the melody so this time we decided to change it into a party tube. Meow~ Alright, everybody let’s say it together now! Meow!

I wish I could have been on the shoot.

What is it with cats this year? Between this and Cats Not Ads, there's definitely something in the catnip.

In this case it's branding as Yamato Transport has been using black cats as their ad mascots for many years now , as Kuroneko or 黒猫 means "black cat" in Japanese. Duh.

Instead of a 'Celebrity Creative Director' I'd like to see a 'Cat Creative Director'. Now there's a stunt I can get stroked about - Fur real.
