1. Kittens are too cute for that.
They should have used rats or turkey vultures. I did like looking at the sweet little kittens though. Thanks for posting

2. You're welcome

3. Gave me a great laugh....
I love cats and liked the irony of a cat being 'evil.' I'm going to watch it again and send it to others.

Thx.

7. Looking at the sweet kittens is great casting!
That's BP's PR department working overtime trying to figure out how to get themselves out of this shit hole they've dug. Spin, Baby, Spin! At least, that's how they're hoping their figure heads will be perceived by the public, if they can control the message...

9. This is about the only bearable video commentary that I can deal with
The cats make the point quite well. Clever of them to get cats with an English accent ;)
