PetSmart highlights, in a hilarious new ad, that it has something for every situation for your pet.
The 15-second commercial, titled “The Chaperone Pet,” features a teenage boy and his girlfriend on a couch, trying to kiss but being “separated” by a large dog, who it turns out is her pet. When a PetSmart employee tells him she has the perfect thing for him, the youngster can’t help to raise a brow, but he soon realizes the employee had a good idea. The next scene sees him visiting his girlfriend again, bringing a bunch of flowers for her and a rubber bone for her furry companion.
“We get it, you got it,” the voiceover says at the end of the commercial, adding the brand’s tagline, “PetSmart – for the love of pets”.
PetSmart, the largest specialty pet retailer in North America, sells pet animal products and services such as dog grooming and dog training, cat and dog boarding facilities, and daycare, and also offers a variety of small animals for sale and adoption, such as small birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and several different pocket pets, like rats, guinea pigs, chinchillas, gerbils (except in California), many different species of hamster, and mice.
