Citizen Drunky Pants

Posted by on September 14 at 10:26 AM

My friend Brandon has a cat whose visage is disarmingly similar to that of the late Orson Welles. For reals:


Recently while visiting his cat, I was lovingly mocking the creature (as everyone who encounters it must do), asking him whether he would indeed “sell no wine before its time.” This juvenile taunt sent Brandon straight for Youtube, where he shared this delightful/disturbing clip of a visibly drunken Welles attempting to hock Paul Masson champagne. Enjoy:

(mysterious disappearing text aside) love this cat! So cute....

That cat will so eat your face off while you sleep...

Ah, poor, poor Orson. Can't you just see him thinking, "What am I doing here? I made CITIZEN KANE, GOD DAMN IT!"

See if you can track down his famous "frozen peas" tirade. It's a masterpiece. "This is a lot of shit, you know that?"

They should have let Orson himself do the editing on the commercial. Would've been a masterpiece.

love that clip, been around for years, but it always kills me.

This should be the least of Orson's concerns. He was also the voice of the big bad in The Transformers Movie.

It was his last role.

That is the most impressive cat I have ever seen. I would not mock it, I would bow before it.

With him on the pile of newspapers and the plunger in the shot it's kind of like he's been caught lounging on his cat toilet.

Great photo. Thanks for sharing.

Nothing absorbs cat pee like back issues of the Stranger!
