Kitten vs. Bunny Rematch Expected to Break Pay-Per-View Records
Eat your heart out, WrestleMania. According to television ratings analysts, the highly anticipated upcoming July 4 rematch between a kitten and a bunny is expected to shatter previous pay-per-view records.
“We’ve already sold 930,000 units in the New York City metro area alone,” said a spokesperson for Time Warner Cable. The expectation is for over 15 million buys nationwide, far surpassing records for heavyweight boxing, WWE or UFC events. Revenue is expected to approach three quarters of a billion dollars.
“With the fragmentation in today’s media landscape, I never thought we’d see numbers like this again,” said television historian Arthur Cobb. ”But this kitten and this bunny are huge — they’re bigger than Holyfield and Tyson. By a long shot.”
The latest odds have the kitten as a 3:1 favorite.
