Do dogs in commercials really help to sell product? If the products are dog related, chances are cute dogs or funny dogs will stick with you and the product will be remembered (and purchased). What if the product was a human type and a dog was advertising it? Would you be more inclined to purchase that product?
Case in point: Old Spice now features Mr. Wolfdog in their commercials. According to P&G, Mr. Wolfdog “speaks” through the assistance of a “patent-pending electronic voice collar” that translates Wolfdog to English. Huh?
There are many dog-oriented commercials that have stuck with me over the years, but I cannot honestly say I am drawn to this one. Here’s the video below. What do you think? A Fidose of Reality Check is needed for this one, as I find it silly not memorable. To each their own.
