At least three major automakers have taken advantage of this glorious day and released cat-related ads. Or at least we think there are three, because if we search for any more of these, we'll get lost in the endless streams of the Internet.

Of course, feline videos are among the most popular on Youtube and Facebook. But this isn't the first time the corporate world has tried to be hip/cool and end up looking like grandpa.

Unless your car can do something amazing like that one that begs for food in Japan, we aren't going to share your stuff. We're looking at you, Volkswagen, since this isn't your first time pulling this kind of things.

That said, "Tired cats - Wake up call by Volkswagen" features the cutest furballs of al the videos and seems to make sense. Cats fall asleep without even knowing it, like drivers who have been on the road for way too long. So the attention assists chime is perfect for them.

Honda's commercial is part of several designed for the US market. It's about summer sales, and it looks like somebody in the creative department just couldn't keep his paws off the catnip. Who thought it was cool to throw a cat into the trunk, and why is she shedding like that - did you guys stress her out? But I've got to give them points for that cat with a tie.

And finally, we have the one from Buick, which for some odd reason feature the last version of the Encore, not the new one. They want to make fun of how cool the crossover is for having all its functions controlled via the smartphone. But every cat owners knows you can't get them to press the screen unless there's something moving, like that fish game.
