The Product: Audi A3
The Premise: He wants a chihuahua. She wants a Doberman Pinscher. At a pet store employee’s suggestion, they compromise and combine the breeds …
The Punchline: … to create the unholy terror that is Doberhuahua, a monstrous beast that stalks the dog park and attacks Sarah MacLachlan during one of her weepy SPCA commercials (for the record, here’s what a Doberhuahua might actually look like). Audi: Engineer of your worst nightmares.
The Verdict: Bold move: A dog commercial that isn’t cute. Next year, let’s let one loose in the Puppy Bowl, and see what happens.
