While the marketing for The Muppets is pretty much taking the cake for the best promotional campaign this year, the team behind Puss in Boots is putting in some decent effort as well. We've already seen a viral ad making our feline hero out to be The Most Interesting Cat in the World after the popular ads for Dos Equis beer, but now he's become The Cat Your Cat Could Act Like in a new viral video parodying the funny Old Spice ads featuring Isaiah Mustafa. If the movie contains some of the cleverness that went into these ads, then maybe this spin-off could be better than the later Shrek films. See the entertaining video below!
Here's the new viral ad for DreamWorks Animation's Puss in Boots:
A story about the dramatic events leading up to the sword fighting cat's meeting with Shrek and company.
Puss in Boots is directed by animator Chris Miller, who started as a story artist and directed Shrek the Third (not fourth) a few years back. The screenplay was co-written by Brian Lynch (Hop), David H. Steinberg (The Babysitter), Tom Wheeler ("The Cape") and Jon Zack (Shrek the Third). This is a new spin-off of the Puss in Boots character from the Shrek franchise created at DreamWorks Animation. Paramount is bringing Puss in Boots to theaters in 3D everywhere starting on November 4th this fall. Anyone excited for this already?
