Mastercard's "Cat in the Hat"
An adaptation of Mastercard's "priceless" advertisements to suit Dr. Seuss' fancy�"Cat in the Hat" lists arbitrary rhyming items as possible gifts during the holiday season. The Cat in the Hat spends $300 on presents, but the "perfect present for one and all, for ones who are big and ones who are small," is indeed, priceless. The advertisement tries to draw traffic to The Cat in the Hat movie and a Mastercard contest where people can win a trip to Universal Orlando just by using their Mastercard.
