This is the transcript of the extended version of the commercial:

I’m Johanna, and I make hats, for cats. Fedoras, beanies, bowlers, fezzes, bonnets, all kinds of hats for all kinds of cats.

And why would a cat need a helmet?

Hello, 8 lives down, 1 to go.

I start by trying to tap into the feline mystique. I help a cat express his or her personality. The right style of hat can have a very positive impact on a cat’s self esteem.

I studied at Et Universidad in Barcelona and also The Sorbonne.

And do you think your education has helped you run your business?


Years ago, I was starring in a one-woman show about a cat who is allergic to other cats. Opening slash closing night, it hit me… hats for cats. Everyone said I was crazy. Everyone. But I just kept with it. Things really took off when I went online, I got my domain,, from GoDaddy.

How did you choose that name?

Oh, well, um. Gato is Spanish for cat and chapeau is French for hat. Dot com, that comes with it. Now these things are fee-lying out of here.

Do you miss the theater?

The American theater is dead.
