The Diary loves a good freebie. Unfortunately the freebie in question, from McCann-Erickson, didn’t fall into that category. Scary freebie is probably the best way to describe it.
The item in question is a nodding dog, complete with replica-afro wig from the latest ad for NescafÃ©.
But whereas the dog in the ad has a splendid afro, ours has what looks like a judge’s wig crudely stuck to its head. As a result he looks like a cross between Laurence Llewelyn Bowen and a Status Quo wannabe.
The dog is also moulting fast, so if someone from McCann would like to send us a hoover it would be much appreciated.
