The Hoard Potato thinks Cat Food is for The Byrds

Friskies™ cat food has recently been broadcasting an ad that suggests that their product is laced with psychoactive substances. If you actually watch broadcast TV, you may have already seen this:

Someone on YouTube has added a much more appropriate soundtrack:

It really is more appropriate, and not just thematically: the music fits the action better. It's almost like the ad agency composed the animation to The Byrds, and only added the Creepy Nasal Monotone Singing Of Banal Ad Copy That Barely Qualify As "Lyrics" after the fact.

Found on Slate and BoingBoing; the Byrds remix was too funny not to share, and the original (posted by Purina itself!) is only embedded for context.
