Ford Sportka | The Evil Twin

I saw this short film at www.the-eviltwin.co.uk on “The Panel” on Network 2 the other night. Unfortunately, the site is an awful flash site. To watch the “Evil Twin” movie, click on “View Highlights”, and then click on “Clip one”. It’s a tiny box, and I can’t see any download link for a sane version.
Update! That site is gone, but you can get the Ford Sport Ka ads here: http://www.allowe.com/Humor/video.htm – just scroll down a little. Thanks Brian for getting that!
Here’s a lot more info about the advert. Good read.

  1. A clever example of the expression ‘curiosity killed the cat’. A moral lesson for everyone in an amusing format, who said adverts can’t be educational. I think all the CLEVER people out there realised it wasn’t a real cat and saw it for what it was: a funny advert to sell a rather rubbish car. As for the people who were demanding that Ford and the advertising agency responcible should die, they should seek pyschiatric help because they obviously can’t tell reality from fantasy.

  2. That has got to be the funniest, most clever, most inspired commercial I’ve ever seen. I showed it to a room full of 300 conventioneers at at a photography seminar, and EVERYONE was laughing and requesting a replay!

    If you are so sensitive that you can’t take a joke, maybe you need to look into heavy medication. Don’t go out in public; you’ll be offended every five minutes.

    Get a sense of humor! That ad was Fantastic!

  3. Someone just emailed this sicko commercial to me and then I realized it was done in 2003 and….like, I could have been pissed at Ford years ago. Well, I feel better to read it was all in digital fun.

  4. The one to REALLY blame…is the cats OWNER! Why people let cats out to roam on their own, is beyond me. Cats get run over every day and I blame the cat’s owner. Do they also leave their young children outside to run loose? I mean, how smart do they think their cat is?! Keep the cats inside please!

  5. Whoever made this video is an un-creative prick who should find better ways to show their digital imaging skills, instead of using violence that even an eight year old could come up with. Why would people approve of the unneccesary murder of a small, innocent animal (which by the way is illegal) just for getting some tiny paw prints on their car? You people are sick, inconsiderate pricks who do not deserve to share our planet with me, and my fellow organisms. (And yes, I say “share”, because God gave this world to ALL of us)

  6. Wow…I can’t believe how can someone thought that was funny…clever? brilliant? and even suggest others to get a sense of humor? can someone explain me what part that was funny? ……let me guess…these people are whites…oh…wait…not all whites…then that wouldn’t be fair…just some white trash…no other races think they’re higher than any other races…no other races is as cruel as they are…yeah…white trash…

  7. Isn’t it amazing how the bleeding heart obsessionist rabble are so outraged by a small viral movie that utilises clever computer technology? A suggestion – decapitate the bleeding hearts instead (without the computer wizardry!)

  8. wow, people need to get a life, going to kill someone over a digital cat, how faggish… and for all you “its not the cat, its what it represents”—- go to hell….

  9. Why can’t they make a commercial with a small boy being decapitated? This would undoubtedly sell more cars as it would atrract lots of attention. He loses his ball in the car through the sunroof and goes after it … you know …

  10. The only problem with this ad is that it appears to glorify cruelty in general. Fake animal or not, it takes a certain kind of sick human being to find something like this amusing.

  11. This is called ‘suspension of disbelief’ in exchange for entertainment you are supposed to forgive the fantastical
    or provisionally suspend judgement.Any person of rational thought wouldn’t actually enjoy watching this happen for real,but then that is where the humour part occurs the evil twin car likes to chop of kittys head funking hilarious look into it.. tis funny . . . oui bien sur?

  12. i’d like to put something witty and clever but i can’t think of anything at the moment for laughing so hard
    so you’ll have to be content with the following:
    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU DUMB FUCKS IT ISN’T REAL FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!!!!!!
    YOUR PROBLEM IS YOU HAVE MORE NIPPLES THAN BRAIN CELLS!!

  13. This is ridiciulous. Death and fake death is not funny, mostly when it’s of a defensless human OR animal. Funny is Conan O Brian, funny is The 40 Year Old Virgin, funny is a lot of other things but not this…I’m far from a hippie, just a decent human being. If you think this is funny, what isn’t? Cruelty is gay.

  14. I’m far from a hippie, just a decent human being. If you think this is funny, what isn’t? Cruelty is gay.
    So Angel, you’re a decent person that thinks that homophobia is acceptable. Before you portray yourself as a paragon of virtue, you might want to actually examine who you are and where you need to improve.

  15. This advertisement is classless, to say the least. People who get pleasure from watching an innocent pet suffer are weak individuals trying to act strong. By enjoying the suffering of another weak creature, it makes them feel better and stronger. But those of you who enjoy it are pitiful weaklings.

    By the way…I don’t care if it is a digital cat. It’s a pathetic sign of our non-sensitive times.

  16. I thought the pigeon one was funny ^.^
    but even if it is digitalized, my little daughter was watching it o tv!
    shes 5 and we have a cat
    so i didn’t think the cat one was not

  17. haven’t chuckled this hard since i microwaved that yappy shi tzu last week. an excellent way to make intense animal cruelty an outdoor activity for the whole family.

  18. It remains a bloody brilliant ad. I owned a black Ka long before these commercials and can recommend them to anyone as a great metro car. The ads are just the icing on the cake. Wowsers need not watch!
    ..as for those psychos who express their deisre to kill over the ads get some perspective! been to the movies or watched the news lately!

  19. I don’t like the idea of a company using a car that kills animals…..even though it’s not real. And somehow this is supposed to be funny? I have 4 cats and they are great pets. It made me sick to my stomach to see the cat commercial. I hope that there is a public outcry against their demented commercials and even a boycott of their products unless they are stopped immediately.

  20. Then we have 1.5 million abortions every year and no one says a thing. It’s the women’s right.. It’s not really a baby, etc. Then comes a commercial showing a cat being decapitated and everybody goes ballistic. Priorities people!!!!!.

  21. These adverts were actually made by an independent company and submitted to Ford. Ford found the adverts to be tasteless and offensive and did not want to be associated with them, and the adverts were rejected. They were never meant to be released, but were leaked by someone at the company that made them.

  22. I don’t know why anyone would find this funny. it is so sad to treat any type of animal this way and should not be laughed at.

    1. It’s usually called a sense of humor.

      Or a lack of these days. People take things way too seriously. After all, if you can’t laugh at the messed-up things in life, you would probably just kill yourself in such a state of depression at the state of the world today.

      So just have a giggle at it. Go on, just one more wafer-thin giggle.

  23. you animal lovers are getting on my nerves. cats are useless. eat, sleep and do nothing productive. they remind me of some humans that are wasting land mass. we hunting the wrong species. save a deer-shoot a loser living for free off someone elses income. LIBERALS ARE GETTING ON MY NERVES..move to china and see if you can become an activists for your cause. I have a few pine trees in my yard you can sit on.

  24. Siamo stufi e arcistufi di vedere certe cose…. anche se è solo uno spot digitale siamo stufi di vedere certe scene e sapere che c’è pure qualche cretino che ci ride su….. pessimi video entrambi…..inguardabili….

  25. No this car should be banned. Thiink of the children that would do that without the parents watching them. This is Atrocious & should be banned. I would have sued the company & the people that own the car

  26. Really? Me too. Nothing worse than working your ass off, buying a car, and then having a cat claw up your ragtop because it looked interesting to climb on. Fuck ’em.

  27. I can’t believe some of the posts on this thread! I literally laughed my arse off at some of them. People getting all bent out of shape about an advert for christ sake. IT’S. AN. ADVERT.

    Not real, fake. There are far worse things going on in the world. Like rape, child abuse and such. And you care more about one stupid CGI cat? Shame on you.

    Cats, aside from their so-called “personalities”, are generally stuck-up and misbehaved anyway. And in no way should ever come first in the “big scheme of things.”

    They’re not even useful. At least a dog can hunt and will stick by your side no matter what. Provided it’s treated properly of course!
    As for a cat, soon as someone with more or better food comes along, they would leave you quicker than you could blink.

    Funny advert by the way. I’m just going to put in my earplugs.

    There.

    Cat-lovers (see, even that sounds wrong!) feel free to rant away lol.

  28. what a damn boring today, i feel like i don’t be needed by anybody,
    somebody i love don’t even care about me, i always end up wandering for her love,
    ohh damn shit,
    every girl is pissing me off
