Cat AND bacon lovers, you no longer need to find separate outlets for your life's passions!

Cat parents, you know how it goes: Once you've solved the problem of where to put the kitty litter box in your house, you've also got to deal with the (proportional) issue of kitty litter box odor. Of course, the odor of the freshly-cooked bacon you've always got going on is nice, but how can those two disparate worlds be more in sync? As in IN THE SAME PLACE?

Okay, if it sounds to good to be true, it is: The Fresh Step Bacon-Scented Kitty Litter might sound like a dream come to life* but if you look back to your calendar and take note that this video made the rounds on April 1, well...yep, you've been fooled.

Complete with a spoof expert doing a spoof interview on a spoof TV station, this spoof product strikes close to the "did they REALLY think of that next?" nerve. We'll grant, the part about the urine-activated sizzle sound seriously took things over the edge. In case you didn't get enough goofy fun as part of your April 1, check out the video for an end-of-the-day guffaw.

*I love my cat. I love bacon. Bacon-scented kitty litter sounds ridic.
