Animals in Advertisements

Vodafone\ Hutch (The Dog)
No dog has done more for the canines, not even Lassie or Beethoven, than the Vodafone dog has. The advertisement not only became a rage but it also sent the prices of pugs soaring. Owning a pug became a status symbol as Vodafone emerged a clear winner.

Vodafone (Parrot)
The Pug, Zoozoos and now the Parrot. Vodafone is back with a talking parrot (voice by Boman Irani) in their endeavor to constantly dish out innovative advertisements.

Lijjat Papad (Lijjat Papad Bunny)
The advertisement came out at a time when animation was unheard of in Indian Advertising. This puppet by Ramdas Padhye has been the face of Lijjat for as long as I can remember. This desi avataar of Bugs Bunny is a timeless classic.

Halls Polar Bear
This is a relatively new, unknown and forgettable advertisement. There is a fakest of them all Polar Bear throwing snow balls, hugging and cuddling our actor. The background music just goes 'Sharinnnngaaaaaa'.
