Woof in Advertising: Suzuki’s Super Bowl ad
Here’s another preview of an upcoming Super Bowl ad, starring dogs.
That makes at least four that we know of during this year’s big game — two for cars, one for shoes and one for beer – that are using dogs (as opposed to scantily clad women, digitally altered babies and celebrity bimbos) to make the sale.
If that’s not a trend, I don’t know what is.
This one, called “Sled,” is American Suzuki Motor Corporation’s second Super Bowl ad — for its all-wheel-drive 2012 Suzuki Kizashi sport sedan.
The canine star of the ad — or at least the one sitting in the front seat, tapping his paw to the music – is Nitro, an eight-year-old husky from Vancouver who now lives in Okotoks, Alberta.
The ad also features actual Inuit actors, the song ”Party Still Jumpin’” by BKM (Benjamin Kahle Music), and lots of majestic countryside.
It was filmed in Kananaskis Country in Alberta, according to the Vancouver Sun.
“I have to say he loves to act and he loves to go to work. He’s an actor dog,” Flo Krisko said of Nitro. Krisko trained all of the dogs in the ad at Alberta Film Animals in Okotoks.
Nitro is owned by Krisko’s neighbour. He was featured in the 2007 film “Christmas in Wonderland” and will be in upcoming episodes of the CBC show “Heartland.”
