Sniffing Canine Circulars

These Date a Dog Print Ads Get Up Close and Personal With Pups

— May 28, 2011 — Lifestyle
A great way for ads to gain the public's attention is to be peculiar -- just like these Date a Dog print ads are. Each of these June 2011 print ads was created by advertising agency Eigen Fabrikaat.

These Date a Dog print ads feature daring models getting up close and personal with their canine friends. These ads are extremely effective in their ability to capture viewers' attention and have us wondering why on Earth these people are sniffing doggy behinds.

Not only are these Date a Dog print ads cute and quirky, but they really do reflect the dog shelter's message to the public to "Give a shelter dog a new home. Come sniff them out." These ads put a cute comical spin on visiting animal shelters and adopting deserving dogs.
Trend Themes
1. Comical Animal Shelter Ads - There is potential for more animal shelters and organizations to create ads that put a comical spin on adopting homeless pets, which can help to increase awareness and adoption rates.
2. Controversial Advertising - Brands can create ads that are controversial, but also clever and creative to capture the attention of the public and stand out from competitors.
3. Quirky Advertising - By creating quirky ads that feature unexpected elements, brands can successfully capture the attention of their target audiences and stand out in their respective industries.
Industry Implications
1. Animal Shelters - Animal shelters can disrupt the traditional advertising methods by creating comical and clever ads that capture the attention of potential pet adopters.
2. Advertising - The advertising industry can challenge traditional techniques and create controversial yet creative ads to effectively sell products or services.
3. Marketing - Marketers can employ quirky ads to advertise products and services that can catch the attention of potential clients and generate brand awareness.
