HATE this commercial!!

Has anybody else seen the new commercial for howstuffworks.com? The one with the scuba diver who has a CAT with him underwater, complete with helmet and oxygen tank? I am sorry, but that commercial ticks me off to NO end. I cannot stand it. Just the thought of what the cat must be going through, first of all to have to be underwater, then to have this tank forced over its head, and the straps and the oxygen tank - it seems like cruelty to me and I'm amazed PETA hasn't stepped in. I hate this commercial and I think the person who first said "let's make a cat a scuba diver and put him underwater!" should be shot.

If it's the same cat as in this video: http://tinyurl.com/6xgklh, it's someone's pet, and one of those rare cats that actually likes swimming, with or without SCUBA gear. And I can't imagine the cat is unwilling; you'd only get it do that once if it was.
