Editor's Pick

Cat lovers will adore the new holiday spot from the New York Lottery, in which a resourceful bodega kitty delivers some holiday magic.

Directed by RSA's Jake Scott, (who clearly has a way with feline talent), for McCann New York, the spot sees the cat make a journey across a gorgeously wintry Manhattan, running into a whistling Santa Claus on the way, in search of the bodega owner, who's spent his day selling lottery tickets and lovingly telling the cat to get down off the counter. Finally, he slides down the chimney, to tuck a ticket into the snoozing owner's stocking. Who needs Santa when you have a feline friend?
