DoorDash is driving home (with the windows down so the pup can smell the fresh air) the idea that they can deliver more than food. Of course, I’m talking about this basset hound ad, but also the ad below featuring a very earwormy song. Take a look…
The Music. The title of this song is pretty self-explanatory. It’s “I’ve Got A Dog And My Dog’s Name Is Cat” by Barry Louis Polisar. Here’s the full track.
As you can see from the video, the album title is intended to be funny. “My Brother Thinks He’s A Banana and Other Provocative Songs For Children” was released way back in 1977 and includes quite a few songs… intended for children. Check out the track listing (and download a few if you’re brave!) by clicking this Amazon link.
The Actor. The guy who shows up at the end, well, I guess you can call him an actor. It’s Nascar driver Bubba Wallace. He’s sponsored by DoorDash so it makes a whole lot of sense (unlike a dog named cat) to have him appear in the ad. Great integration of Petsmart, DoorDash, and Nascar on this commercial!
The Pup. Asher the dog belongs to Bubba Wallace and there’s even a cute story about how he “helped” with Bubba’s marriage proposal. Check it out here.
Which do you like more, the ad itself or the music? For me, I can’t get the song out of my head, nor do I want to. Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for dropping in!
