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.

Check out the ad below:
