Cowboy herding cats commercial may just be the best we've seen

Usually we wouldn't recommend watching a commercial, but this one is something special. It has cats, cowboys and cowboys valiantly attempting to herd said cats. Need we say more?
This amazing commercial opens in the Wild West, with a cute cowboy explaining that he comes from a long line of cat herders. It follows the lives of the cat herders -- from being clawed in the face to coaxing cats through streams to lint rolling their clothes every night. That sounds like every day for us!

We instantly relate to the phrase "It's as difficult as herding cats" -- but where does it come from? According to Wiktionary, it may originate from a Monty Python movie in 1979, where he speculates on how difficult it would be to herd cats waiting to be sheared. Who knew?!
While herding cats might be difficult, believe it or not you can actually teach them tricks. According to Pet Finder, it's very similar to the way you train dogs: treats, practice and clickers. If you want to herd them, though -- well, you might want to sign up for some training from the guys in the video first!
There are so many amazing and hilarious moments in this video that you just have to see it yourself. Watch it below, and don't forget to share it with your friends and family who will most likely love it as much as we do.
