Much more amusing today is eHarmony Cat Lady. Yes, every online dater has some soft shoe for standing out in the thundering herd, but this one is the bad single woman with cat cliché come to life.
I guess every man has a fetish, so perhaps there is a lid for every pot including this Hello Kitty. Most men I know would run screaming for the hills if they got this Hello Kitty. Personally I run screaming for the hills with women like this. She gives whole new meaning to "let me show you my etchings".
Anyway, the eHarmony Cat Lady is about to become more famous then Beyonce pulling a Milli Vanilli at the Presidential Inauguration. And of course she lives in California now (eyes rolling). She will make Lower Merion proud, I'm sure. La La Land will be simply purrfect.... Sorry but this is just too damn funny not to mock.
In just one year, Cara Hartmann—better known as the eHarmony Cat Lady—has gone from YouTube sensation to a star in a commercial for Volkswagen that will appear during Super Bowl XLVII.
The Volkswagen commercial brings together some of the most memorable YouTube videos of the past few years, highlighting people at their most upset, angry and vulnerable moments. The YouTube stars converge in a field and meet up with reggae legend Jimmy Cliff as he gives them “much needed positivity and good vibes,” because, “It’s time to get happy.”
Cara Hartmann, whose alter ego in the eHarmony Video Bio is Debbie, is the first YouTube clip that appears in the commercial and she appears three more times; at the end Jimmy Cliff refers to her as the “crazy cat hugging lady,” as she sways back and forth while holding a basket with a cat....After she was contacted and the commercial was expanded to Hartmann and the other actors actively participating in the commercial, she was asked to travel about an hour outside of Los Angeles (where Hartmann now lives) to shoot the commercial.
“I originally thought it was going to be a small set where they would only need me for a short scene, but when I got to the location it was huge,” Hartmann said. “It was on a big horse farm and we shot really early. It was about 32 degrees and I was in a tank top and pajama bottoms the entire time, so that was a little difficult. But I had my own trailer and was beyond excited just to be there that a little cold didn’t bother me.”
