When news first came of a Puss in Boots spin-off from the Shrek franchise, I think a fair few people were a little sceptical about whether or not it would be worth watching.

Everything we’ve seen so far has definitely been very promising though, kicking off last summer with the first images and plot description, then the first trailer back in March this year, and most recently a great first UK poster.

Now comes a great new viral video for the film courtesy of ComingSoon.net, in which Puss in Boots tells you how much better he is than your cat. And, in pretty much all cases, I’m inclined to agree. Does your cat talk with Antonio Banderas’ voice? Does your cat have golden eggs? Does your cat ride a horse?

That’s what I thought.

Directed by Chris Miller (Shrek the Third), the film will see,

“the legendary Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) going on a heroic journey, teaming up with mastermind Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and the street-savvy Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.”

America is lucky enough to be getting this in just a few weeks’ time on 4th November, but alas we here in the UK will have to wait until 9th December to enjoy it on the big screen, and shown in 3D. Without further ado, here’s the great new viral video, and the earlier viral “No Pants” Pants parody commercial beneath it. Enjoy.
