This ad for the FurKids no-kill animal shelter has gone viral after being posted anonymously on Reddit. It's racked up over four million views on YouTube, despite featuring no actual actors and being shot in around half an hour.

While it calls to mind other spoof shelter ads (such as the memorable Calgary Humane Society film that went viral in 2015 for selling cats like used cars... is this becoming a sub-genre?), this feels more authentic because of the low (no) budget and the fact it can't decide what kind of commercial it wants to spoof... so it does them all.

There's the car salesman pitch, black and white infomercial shots, a South Park joke (I need about three kitty!), mispronouncing common words, and even a spoof of heartstring-tugging PSAs complete with terrible background music. Plus a script which features gems like 'we've got the blackest cats you've ever seen - it's like midnight inside a coffin over here!'
