Dog Pretends To Be a Car in Dutch Volkswagen Ad

Volkswagen Dog

A new ad from Volkswagen Netherlands features a cute Jack Russell Terrier (possibly a Jackapoo), that is so impressed by the neighbour’s VW that he spends his day pretending to be one, much to the chagrin of his beleaguered owner.

The dog makes engine revving sounds at the crosswalk, makes tire suealing sounds in the park, beeps as it’s backing up, and when startled out of a sound sleep, it begins to bark like a car alarm.

The spot was created by DDB & Tribal Amsterdam, and directed by Mattias Schut at Czar.


Morton Promotes Safe-T-Pet Ice Melt with ‘Best in Snow’ Photo Competition

Morton Safe-T-Pet  - Best in Snow

With some areas of the US and Canada already receiving their first snowfalls, that means that soon our roads and sidewalks will be covered with salt and ice-melting products. Some of these products can cause irritation to our dog’s feet, or cause stomach issues which could lead to more serious health issues.

To promote the use of their Safe-T-Pet Pet Care Ice Melt, Morton Salt is hosting a ‘Best in Snow’ pet photo competition.

Pet owners are invited to submit pictures of their pet suited up and ready for winter, with the winner receiving $10,000 in cash and prizes. To kick-off the photo contest, DDB Chicago has fun spoof of dog shows, highlighting the ‘preliminary entries’.
