Some pet-owning web users reacted with shock this week to a Swedish insurance companyís new advertisement featuring cats skydiving, set to the soothing sounds of artist R. Kelly. The uproar was actually enough to get CNNís attention.
Reached by reporters, the insurance company Folksam assured the network that the cats didnít really go skydiving.
The company claimed ad was created for a customer named Eve, who insures her cat through Folksam, using green screen technology to digitally place the cats into a video of people doing the real skydiving.
