Feeling cooped up lately? Stuck in your home, longing for the open road and the wind in your hair? You and me both. The dog in the new AA TV advert knows exactly how we feel.
The 50-second summer TV advert is a lot of fun. It features a dog – or a dog puppet, at least, lounging around at home, before putting a record on and sitting in front of a fan. The punchline features the dog in an open-topped car driving down the road.
Everything has been lovingly designed in the trademark AA yellow, and the whole video takes place in the one room. It’s great to see a major brand using puppets and miniatures for a change, and not going down the 3D animation route. Either way we think the chances are good we’ll be seeing a toy version of this dog on the shelves soon.
The icing on the cake is an incredibly catchy tune that will be stuck in your head long after the advert has finished airing. But who are we to complain about such a joyous video?
So what do you think? Do you love this feeling? We’re big fans of this new AA TV advert and its lovable dog main character. Can’t wait to get back on the road now.
