Todd Gurley has made headlines throughout this offseason due to his knee injury from the 2018 season. This time around, the Los Angeles Rams’ All-Pro running back is making headlines with a hilarious commercial for Hulu with his cat.
Last week, Gurley posted a video on Twitter showing the cat in the video with the hashtag “cat ad” at the end of it. People in the comments of the tweet were curious about what the running back had planned with the cat.
It’s safe to say they were not disappointed. Unless you are an avid fan of dogs and have a distaste of cats. Then, you may have given a thumbs down to the Hulu commercial on Youtube.
The biggest mystery is how a guy that went to Georgia—who’s mascot is a bulldog—ended up becoming a passionate cat owner. The Rams running back was asked about his love for cats before in an article by Sam Alipour of ESPN.
Here’s an excerpt of the interesting Q&A-type article:
What would you list as your dislikes?
Driving. Waking up early. And I hate dogs. I love cats, though. Cats are so cool. Actually, I’m probably gonna get some this year.
Sorry, you’re gonna get a bunch of cats?
Two, at least, so they can, you know, conversate or whatever. I mean, how would I feel if I was a cat and someone bought me and just left me by myself for like 20 years?
So, you’re the Crazy Cat Lady.
Yeah, I’ll be Cat Dude.
This season, Gurley is expected to be given a lighter workload as the Rams plan on keeping him fresh moving forward. As a result, the 25-year old running back should have more energy to take care of his cats.
