(click ad, via) Jesus, why can't I get an assignment like this to work on, instead of the soul-crushing dogshit project I'm slogging through right at this moment? Speaking of dog waste, this Sunday, in Auckland, New Zealand, is the 10th annual Bark in the Park, sponsored by Purina. Look at how cute this ad is. Fucking Ogilvy, I hate youz. Here's a previous cute as fuck Dog promo item. And here's a roundup of other cutesy ads over the years.
