'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever' Merchandise Brings the Perfect Amount of Holiday Spirit
Like Grumpy Cat? Well you, my friend, are in luck, because this holiday season, Lifetime is pulling out all the stops in the hope that people still love and want to see more of the Grumpy Cat (don't worry, we do). On Saturday night, the little kitty is making her TV movie debut in the Lifetime original movie Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever and the kitty is getting a voice courtesy of Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza. (Perfect casting, by the way.) So how is Lifetime promoting its new movie? Well, putting a viral sensation in a film really promotes that film automatically just with commercials alone, but the network is taking things one step further by creating a Tumblr in addition to their website's movie page and, even cooler, providing viewers and fans with some hilarious Grumpy Cat merchandise, all with a touch of holiday spirit, because a touch is more than enough for a cat this grumpy.
So what kinds of merch and swag can you find on Lifetime's Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever website? There's obviously the traditional movie DVD, but the apparel and beyond is really what will get you in the Grumpy Cat and holiday spirit.
Now a Grumpy Cat-themed T-shirt is an obvious choice for great movie merchandise. But what really makes these Grumpy Cat shirts more memorable is the fact that they're holiday and Grumpy Cat-themed. There are different styles for men's and women's shirts, but they're both still pretty silly and grumpy.
Alright, who knew the Grumpy Cat was smart enough to write a book? Well, let's be honest, she probably had it ghostwritten. According to the Lifetime website, the Grumpy Cat book "teaches the fine art of grumpiness and includes enough bad attitude to cast a dark cloud over the whole world." The Lifetime shop also has a postcard book full of pictures of everyone's favorite frustrated feline, a grumpy cat journal to write in your grumpiest thoughts, and a book called The Grumpy Guide to Life: Observations from Grumpy Cat, which is in hardcover, so it's extra classy.
I actually kind of want this, and I'm not even a cat person, let alone a grumpy cat person.
Now you can be grumpy like your favorite cat all year round!
Scare your real pets with this grumpy fake one. Or better yet, stick this plush on any surface where you don't want your pets (or fellow humans for that matter) to go so they know it's off-limits and already spoken for by the grumpiest kitty they've ever seen.
