The Texan lawyer who became a global internet star after he couldn’t work out how to turn a filter off in a Zoom meeting and subsequently declared “I am not a cat” has extended his five-minutes of fame with an ad deal.
Technically hapless attorney Rod Ponton is back in cat guise for a new ad for Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
Ponton reprises his feline moment and then declares “damn cat filter” before the very real Ponton is seen reclining with a Mike’s and the brand’s tagline “A hard day deserves a hard lemonade.”
The idea for the ad fame from quick thinking creative agency WorkInProgress and apparently Ponton agreed to do the shoot and subsequently shot the video – again via Zoom – in under 24 hours.
According to WorkInProgress spokesperson, Ponton was extremely easy to work with and was enjoying his global fame. His appearance fee has not been disclosed.
