Argos are video streaming kittens to relieve stress this Black Friday

Black Friday is stressing me out.

Every where I go I’m being screamed at that I should be buying discounted petrol, unnecessarily huge Toblerone and reduced price sex toys. (I mean, what a night that would be, huh?)

But what if I don’t want to buy anything? (Except maybe an orangutan soap?)

What if I just want to sit and home with the material goods I already own, and sip tea in my flannel pyjamas while watching a video stream of kittens? Huh? HUH?

Lucky for me, Argos has got my back as they’re relieving stressed out shoppers’ tensions with a kitten stream called MewTube.

Instead of having your soul (and disposable income) sucked out of you by retailers this Black Friday, you can sit back and watch a video stream of kittens playing.

Granted, the little critters are playing with Argos’ latest pet range and surrounded by a selection of Argos’ Black Friday products, and you have to go to the Argos website to view it, but the sentiment is there. Right?

Yeah, nah, the irony hasn’t bypassed us either. Well played, Argos, well played. I’m glad your toy section monopolised my Christmas list all those years ago.

‘We know that Black Friday can feel a little overwhelming for some people as they search for the best deals, so we took this opportunity to offer a calming solution in the midst of what is, for many, a shopping frenzy, ‘ explains Mark Steel, Digital Director at Argos.

‘The calming impact that animals have on people is well documented, so our kitten live stream is designed to offer the ultimate take-a-break moment – a “paws” for breath.

‘With our stores also offering extra soothing measures this year, we are confident that we can provide the calmest Black Friday on record to date, however you choose to shop.’

Now, I don’t want to call Mark Steel (great name, by the way) out for being a big old liar but he’s called it a ‘live stream’ and I kind of had a feeling it wasn’t (my kitty senses were tingling) – I’ve had it confirmed that it’s not live. The footage has been filmed in advance but will play throughout the day.

This is for maximum kitten welfare purposes, Metro.co.uk has been told. Which is fine by us. Gotta keep those kitties happy.

The kitten stream will run from today until the end of this godforsaken Black Friday period.

Meow-vellous.
