Thinkbox is not a tech gadget, or an alcoholic beverage, or a car. According to Business Insider, Thinkbox is a UK marketing and lobbying group for commercial TV — how boring is that? — and yet it made quite likely the best commercial featuring dogs this year.
It stars Harvey the dog, who attempts to convince his owner that he should let Harmony the Poodle, the love of Harvey’s life, into the family home. Harvey does this by presenting a video montage of his passionate love affair with Harmony, in which Harvey meets Harmony at a speed-dating event and woos her with movies and jewelry. It even has a Titanic reference.
Thinkbox, on the other hand, attempts to “convince advertisers and agencies — through events, research, and meetings — that TV advertising is where they should be spending their bucks,” according to Business Insider. It does this God knows how. On second thought, maybe it does this by making amazing commercials featuring Harvey.
We don’t know. All we know is that this commercial with dogs is a good one, maybe a great one. Certainly as good as that drunk driving one made by a beer company that everyone loved a while back. And this one was made by a company that doesn’t even sell anything most people want to buy. Imagine how much gadgets Thinkbox could move with an ad like this?
Pretty good, huh? What did you think? Let us know in the comments.
