Gone to the Dogs

Are you looking forward to the Super Bowl?

Maybe you don't have a dog in the hunt…
so you don't really care about the BIG game. 
PaulA and I are VERY interested in the Super Bowl this year.
For us, the New England Patriots are 
top dog…
even with their deflated balls.

Should you not have a dog in the hunt…
there are always commercials to watch 
and snacks to eat.
It's all about the food,
'bout the food, 
not football.

I'm actually very surprised that some commercials have already aired...
and this year it seems the commercials have gone to the dogs...
in more ways than one.

Have you seen the Budweiser "Lost Dog" commercial?
I won't spoil it for you…
but the lost puppy gets rescued by the 

Then there is the 
GoDaddy "Journey Home" commercial.
Again, I won't spoil it for you...
but the puppy finds his way home only to be 
sold online by his owners.  

The GoDaddy commercial received so much negative criticism that the company pulled the ad early saying the brand 
"missed the mark."  
Ummm... I think they meant to say it 
"pissed the mark." 
It doesn't take a rocket scientist/animal activist…
to realize the commercial wasn't going to pass the 
sniff test 
with Doggy Q Public.  
Some people love dogs as much or more than their own kids.

Right now...
the person responsible for that ad is in the doghouse 

demoted to yard detail 
picking up puppy poop.


The upside of the GoDaddy criticism is that the company has 
already gotten a lot of attention.  
And they say 
"even negative attention is better than no attention."
(just ask a middle child.)

Wait, there's an ad idea….
how about:
a  lost middle child is rescued and then sold on a 
website designed by GoDaddy?

Now that would be funny….at least 
to me.

Give Kat a raise.
whoop whoop
