Animates pet stores launches new TV commercial ahead of 'Doomsday' via Y&R New Zealand

doomsday.jpgAhead of the suggested 'apocalypse' on 21.12.12, Animates pet stores, via Y&R NZ has launched a new TV spot.

Rather than looking to the seismometer, barometers and Metservice apps for warning the ad indirectly suggests that people should really look to their animals who have always had an inbuilt, direct connection to our planet.

This spot runs on December 20. The day before the predicted end of the world.

Try to retire with it.

Not nice, but said:

Doesn't a TV ad have to run on TV? This screams of an agency with people raring to go, but no clients to work on. This is just a facebook update made into an internet video.
