2009 Superbowl Commercials - PEDIGREE

By Skylers Dad from Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps.

Ahh yes, the Superbowl. Whether or not you like football doesn't mean diddly squat because it is also big dollar commercial time, and advertisers trot out their best to premier to the largest TV viewing audience in the US.

PEDIGREE is running an ad about alternative pets that some people have decided to get, and the point at the end is that perhaps they should have thought about a dog. It's pretty funny, which always works in my book.

But the best part about the commercial is that they have also produced 4 "Behind the scenes" commercials which I think are even better!

Here is the main spot:

Behind the scene video #1:

"His droppings are like golden eggs of money" - The best is the roommate though...

Behind the scene video #2:

"I've leaned to stay away during mating season"... Classic!

Behind the scene video #3:

"You know that swine ain't my kind"... Love it!

And the final behind the scene video #4:

I started knitting little horn holders... Even better with the horrible singing and guitar playing!

Okay - those are really hilarious ads...and now I want a sign for my house that says "BEWARE OF OSTRICH"

Awesome post, Skydad!

That last woman kind of looks like my best friend's mother.

I love the sassy old lady in the back seat with the boar. "you know that swine ain't my kind". Hilarious!

Really, all this ad made me think was: they're right, animals are a huge pain in the ass. I'll make sure to never adopt one.

Mission accomplished, Pedigree!

Also, I'm concerned that the behind the scenes footage is far more entertaining than the actual ad.
