The classic Christmas film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer featured the Island of Misfit Toys, where unusual playthings wait to find a loving home. Bark is embracing that spirit in a 30-second TV spot promoting a holiday version of its BarkBox subscription service including licensed toys and treats from the film.

The ad stars “misfit” dogs including Ernie, a 14-year-old Japanese Chin who was born deaf and recently lost an eye to cancer and Ari, a nine-year-old French bulldog/Boston terrier mix who is paralyzed in his hind legs.
