Oh hey, did you hear that America is kind of divided on this Day Before Election Day? We were all ready to forget about it, but the ad industry just keeps reminding us!
BBDO’s latest campaign for Pedigree focused on combining one thing pretty much everyone hates (party politics) with another, totally unrelated thing that everyone loves (good dogs) in yet another effort to prove that maybe there’s a reason not to give up on this awful human race after all.
They sent a woman wearing a Hillary Clinton shirt into a Trump rally along with a “lost dog.” Not a whole lot of hilarity ensued, but they did get some angry people to smile!
Anyway, it’s super nice to know that everyone everywhere still hates “the media.”
BTW, that media can’t decide whether this ad was honest and powerful or slick and deceptive.
Ad of the year. Trust me, watch this whether you support Trump or Clinton. https://t.co/7lw2JKiJKA

My take: This is appalling, schmalzy + manipulative. Boo! https://t.co/brJEmlukJx
