This ad makes no fucking sense whatsoever. Okay, so I get they want to show off the new, larger screen, but "not so great for racoons" as a tagline? Because the racoon can't fit it through the cat flap? Am I reading this correctly? I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS! How is the racoon's ability to fit (or not fit) the tablet through a cat flap a reflection of its quality as a potential consumer purchase. I... can't... even... *hyperventilation intensifies*
