Toonces, the Driving Cat, Revisited.


When Toonces the driving cat was featured on Saturday Night Live, Steve Martin said, “He can drive, but not very well.”

Today, felines can drive quite well, thanks to Groupon’s revolutionary new car service featuring GPS-guided red lasers. A customer simply books a ride through the Groupon Grøüber mobile app, and a happy cat arrives to chauffeur them. Grouber-Groupon-Cat

Groupon says customers can now “redeem deals without having to claw their way through traffic.” They will enjoy a peaceful ride, “because everyone knows that cats have complete indifference towards people.”

Grøüber cats focus relentlessly on the red laser emitting from the front of the vehicle, so Groupon’s cars stay on track to their intended destination. No more passenger worries about flying off a cliff — which was a constant concern with SNL guests when Toonces was at the wheel.

Catnip tips are accepted only in Colorado and Washington at this time.


APRIL FOOL! (This is Groupon’s joke, not mine. I hope you enjoyed it!)
