Really creative. Definitely gets the point across. I like all the little details (the remote control, the newspaper, the slippers... all the traditional cliches actually fit here).

The only thing I'm not sure about are all the "angel dogs" around with halos and wings. It almost implies that they have all died before.

Maybe they have - that's why the guy needs to adopt a new dog.

It's beautiful. If I didn't have a dog already I'd adopt one.

For crying out loud - r they encouraging owners who r so self absorbed, full of themselves to CARE for these nice animals? They'll be starved to death, look at that guy - he looks like a wife beater and a major drunk. You adopt dogs becos of the affinity and affection between the owner and the dog- not becos u will be worshipped. No wonder all the other dogs have died and r praying for this man. Tasteless.

my thoughts exactly. getting a dog to be worshipped is like getting married to get a blowjob.

in germany we got an adage for your thinking: "gescheit, gescheiter, gescheitert." translated it means: "clever, more clever, screwed up"

these ads are damn great. its not the job of an ad to judge about people to get a dog or not ;-)the ads job is to make them interrest in ;-)

meticulous art direction of lazy thinking. why?

first, they didn't even bother to understand what makes a (good) pet owner. like i think im good said, that poor excuse for a human being is the least ideal pet owner.

second, a pet thinking its master is god isn't a new insight. i've known that since i was five. so can anyone tell me how this is creative? i'm not saying a popular joke or belief can't be creative. it can be, if used laterally, in a totally new, unexpected way. for instance, we use the same insight, of a dog worshipping it's owner, for a condom ad. now that would be creative. but this one is not. it's as straight as the crowd in a cher concert is not. the ad is about pet ownership and the tired insight is about pet ownership.

but most importantly, even if i don't analyze it like that, as a pet owner myself, this totally turns me off.

piece of art? haha. right. put this in any gallery and it would stick out as ugly and stupid. it wouldn't even have 1% percent of the artistry of the ugliest painting there. and as an ad, this just doesn't work. stupid and lazy.
