    Its from Sweden, not Switzerland. And it is computer generated.
    What is wrong with some people?

    Indeed, there has been a lot of comments as this video went viral on the internet. People just love pets and they can't imagine ever doing something like that to their pets. It alll went well though as the Swiss company explained that it was just special effects. Whew! :)

    Cool! I remember Jeanne Moos(e) when she had antlers on top of her head. They removed the antlers, and then they removed the "e" from the back of her name. Wasn't that a cruel thing to do? If they can do that, then they can throw a few cats out of an airplane and let them fly. They land on their feet, anyway, and have nine lives.

    This is extremely cruel. How can anybody in their right mind do that to a defenseless animal!!!

      It's easy. You pick them up and chuck them out of a side door from an airplane. Next question . . .

        If you chucked it out it would fall like stone. To skydive you have to wait certain amount of time to use parachute, and make certain body movement that makes the words spelled out. This is not possible. Its people sky diving, and cat superimposed. Skydiving is not easy, and CAN NOT BE ACCOMPLISHED BY CATS. What really scares me is that obviously people who have enough brain to turn on computer somehow think this is really a cat skydiving. When you see a movie star sky diving in movie its not them, its stunt man who knows how. And movie star has better chance then a cat of accomplishing it. I don't understand. When did people get so stupid?

      It stuns me that anyone could think this is real.

      "The company’s marketing director assured the world no cats were harmed in the making of the ad. In fact, no cats flew. People were shot skydiving, and then replaced with cats through the magic of the green screen."

      How can anyone in their right mind believe a cat is really doing that? How would you even make a harness to fit a cat? What is your IQ? Skydiving is not just falling.
