Beware of cheating felines

THE WORK: A campaign for the Hong Kong Competition Commission by Triangle.

Hong Kongers seem to have more on their minds these days than anti-competitive commercial enterprises, but nonetheless here's a new TV spot for the Competition Commission by the agency called Triangle. If you don't speak Cantonese, it may be helpful to know that the saying “pull a cat's tail” means "to cheat", and like in English, "fat cat” is related to being rich and greedy.
