Over the years, Cloris Leachman has won numerous awards for her acting (my fave: Nurse Diesel). Her fancy footwork drew applause (and kisses) on Dancing With the Stars. And the longtime vegetarian turned heads everywhere when she became one of PETA’s Lettuce Ladies.

Condoms may be effective birth control for humans, but they don’t work for dogs and cats. She wants everyone to know that curbing suffering for millions of animals is a snap: One SNIPcan prevent the birth of as many as 420,000 cats in just seven years or 67,000 puppies in six years. That’s why she wanted to make this spot the performance of a lifetime. Watch the outtakes and try to tell me that this woman isn’t a comedic genius:
