This video series is based on a manga comic strip with the main story taking place during the Vietnam War. The Vietnamese are portrayed as cats, with all various nations represented with different animals. As an example, Americans are Rabbits, Vietnamese are Cats while Arabs and other middle eastern people are Camels. Judging from the trailer, this may become a huge hit; only time will tell.
Implications - The mix of childish themes and adult messages has long proven to be highly amusing. Businesses that create products that play up both adult and childish imagery will continue to be humorous and appeal to a wide target demographic.
