Walmart: Yodeling Cat

This is a commercial ad of Walmart. This commercial was released in December 2011 in United States. Under the title of “Walmart: Yodeling Cat”.

Created as a viral for Walmart (also used in a TV commercial campaign) this video was created by superimposing a yodeler’s lips on a live-action cat.

It was done by The Martin Agency, Richmond advertising agency.

I was thinking that this is weird. I found it strange at first or should I say weird but as I kept on watching it, it didn’t bother me much at all. I just don’t know the idea about this cat yodelling. I think this is a reminder for us that we need to set our christmas gifts for our loved one since Christmas is just around the corner. Oh, boy. That reminds me that I need to check if I still have funds for the christmas vacation.

Lyrics:
♬Dashing through the snow-del lodel-layhee
One horse open sleigh-del laydee-layhee
Over the hills we go-oh-oh
Laughing all the way-hee-hee
Bells on bob tails ring-a-ling-a-leehee
Making spirits bright-a-light-a-leehee
What fun it is to laugh and sing a sleighing song tonight
Oh Jing-a-ling a bells.
Jing-a-ling a bells
Jingle all the way-de-lay-de-layhee
Oh-del what-el fun-el it is to ride-el in a one horse open sleigh-hee hee
Jing-a-ling a bells.
Jing-a-ling a bells
Jingle all the way-hee hee
Oh-del what-el fun-el it is to ride-el in a one horse open sleigh-hee
Yodel-odle-lay hee odle yodel ladle lay hee Yodel-odel-lady lay hee hee
Oh Yodel ladle ladel lay hee Oh Yodel ladle ladel lay hee Oh del lay doh lay doh oh hee hee
Yodel-odle-lay hee odle yodel ladle lay hee Yodel-odel-lady lay hee hee
Oh-del what-el fun-el it is to ride-el in a one horse open sleigh-del lay del lay hee hee…♬
