Wanna Make $100 Million?
Written by Ric Chetter on December 8, 2014
Get an f’d up cat. Grumpy Cat has made her owner nearly $100 million in less than 2 years. That is more than a lot of high paid celebrities out there. You might be surprised to know that Grumpy cat has a real name, Tardar Source (get it?) and she lives with her owner Tabatha Bundesen in Morristown, Arizona who used to be a server at a restaurant there.
Tabatha says she quit her job within “days” of her brother posting a picture of the cat online and the phones haven’t stopped ringing. The famous scowl is a result of a couple of conditions she has had since birth, dwarfism and an underbite. Not so f’d up, is it?
What is sort of f’d up is that the cat’s fame was spread thanks to Ben Lashes. Ben is get this, an “internet cat agent”. No shit.
So how does the cat make all this money? Endorsement deals. The cat endorses an array of products and a “best selling book” there is even a brand of iced coffee called Grumppucino and this cat is a face for Friskies cat food. Not to mention a forthcoming movie called Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. Which is being described as a cross between Home Alone and Die Hard.
