Temptations Cat Treat "Say Sorry" Commercial

Featuring Song "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" By Elton John


Okay, so we understand that the Christmas holidays are behind us and that this commercial from the Temptations Cat Treat company was aired last year. However, it is one of those ads which viewers are still talking about so we have decided to cover it. The ad we are referring to is titled "Say Sorry" and it features a song from Elton John called "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word". The TV commercial is very funny and it has an adorable ratings of almost 10!


Original Commercial:



Say Sorry To Your Cat


The premise and storyline behind this advert is really quite interesting and hilarious. It is based on the way people dress up their cats all over America. In the ad, we get to see numerous cats dressed up in silly, yet adorable outfits.  The epic part about the commercial is that most of the cats actually appear to be sad or disappointed that they were dressed in these costumes. The entire ad is mostly cats shown in different situations. It isn't until the final scene that we actually get to see two humans in the ad, a man and a woman. Still, the final focus of that scene is also their cat. In that scene, the man and woman both have identical matching outfits and they dressed their cat with an outfit to match theirs.




Original Song:







The Word Sorry Is In The Air


The use of the song 'Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word'  by Elton John in this commercial is perfect. As viewers are left to stare at these numerous sad looking felines, the tune plays in the background. The ominous tone and feel of the song, kind of made the commercial seem as if it was being done for an ASPCA or animal cruelty company. However, it is not until the end that we get to see that the commercial is actually for the cat treat company Temptations.  








Lyrics Used in Advert:



What I got to do to make you love me?

Sorry seems to be the hardest word.

It's sad, so sad

It's a sad, sad situation.

Oh it seems to me

That sorry seems to be the hardest word.






Cats In Costumes



We are pretty sure that this commercial has special meaning to the people that love pets and those that truly love their cats. Still, you don't really have to be an animal lover or even a cat lover to enjoy this ad. Seeing all of these adorable furry felines in such funny outfits is quite worth watching this advert a few times.
