DNC video: The cat's meow?

Creative marketing for the DNC

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - In less than six days, a video showing off the "feline charm" of the Queen City has gone semi-viral and become quite the cat's meow online.

The video is simple, show off all the cat-related things that the city of Charlotte has to offer.

In the 28-second video, Fernando, an orange tabby is thrust in front several different venues that are cat-related and most are DNC-related as well.

Fernando starts with the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS), Charlotte's bus system that visitors and residents can use to access Uptown Charlotte, and LYNX Blue Line, the Queen City's light rail system.

The kitty is then seen at the Smelly Cat Coffee in the North Davidson area.

The last stops he makes are known for Charlotte's pro sports teams, but also the big DNC venues.

He starts at Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers and the final night of the convention where President Obama will accept his re-nomination, before moving to the Time Warner Cable Arena, home of the Charlotte Bobcats, the Charlotte Checkers and the first two official days of the convention.

The video, which has gotten more than 23,000 views, is one of the odd things popping up around Charlotte for the DNC.

At Boulevard South End on South Tryon, they're selling marshmallows with edible pictures of President Obama and the First Lady printed on them. One of the owners, Carmen Ellis says the confections are a creation of a young woman named Nila. Ellis has already had to reorder the DNC themed confections, and says they're selling like crazy.

We also found a left leaning local brew over at Fabo Cafe on Selwyn Boulevard. A brewery in Kinston, NC has shipped in a light ale with a DNC logo on it. The coffee shop and cafe owner Amy Aussieker says she hopes they'll bring in convention attendees.
