Freeview "#catandbudgie" by Leo Burnett London

A cat and a budgie sing Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s You’re All I Need To Get By in an ad for the free-to-air digital TV service Freeview. Leo Burnett London created the spot, in which a cat stalks his way to a birdcage and opens the door but, instead of trying to eat the budgie, starts singing. The cat and budgie then move to the sofa and serenade each other as their owner looks on astonished. The work was created by Phillip Meyler and Darren Keff, and directed by Ne-o through Stink. Media planning and buying was handled by MEC.
