Don’t Let Your Pets Grow Up to be Horny Teenagers (Updated)

A new pair of PSAs from TM Advertising and director Frank Todaro of Moxie Pictures is reminding pet owners to get their best friends “fixed” at a young age, lest their furry companions end up reenacting some 90s teen drama series where 80 percent of characters end up pregnant at some point.

Set to a score of Paula Cole‘s 1997 hit “I Don’t Want to Wait,” perhaps best known as the theme song to the WB’s much-beloved show about teen angst and pent up sexual energy Dawson’s Creek, “Afraid of That” finds two young lovers nearly caught in the act by their parents, who should really know better than to ever let their spawn out of the house. Squee! It’s just like Dawson and Joey, but with kittens!

Meanwhile, “Afternoon Stroll” is probably the better of the two spots, mainly because that kid who runs into the fence near the end of the ad remains funny after repeat viewings. Also, the puppy the girl morphs into is one of the most adorable little fluffballs of cute I’ve ever damn seen. So, remember parents and pet owners: Once your kid hits middle school, start being paranoid. Once your pet hits four months, fix the problem once and for all and prevent unwanted litters.

Update: And now, the infographic addendum:
