The Sean Connery of dogs assures us that nothing has changed “with the ladies” post-neutering surgery. The 007 allusions, the accent, the humor, the veterinary surgery room setting… the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals has created another winner!

  1. LOL! I love this one. I especialy love the Scottish accent and the whole “Ladies. Let me reassure you…” That’s a great one Edie!

  2. Damn, they’re good! I bet the creators of these videos are having a blast. Actually, now that I think of it, I’d like to see a video of this creative team making a video from coming up with the concept through filming—-out-takes and all! Or, maybe just the out-takes.

  3. It seems like so many of these videos are aimed at men who think their own virility is mirrored in their dog’s testicles. Note the assurances that nothing’s really changed.

    Who are these men? I guess the same ones who buy neuticles (faux testicles for neutered dogs) so no one knows they’ve done the right thing.

    Just the same, it was a cute ad. Have you seen any info on how effective they are?

    1. Considering that Neuticle sales are fairly brisk — they’re now made in all sizes and they’re very expensive — I’d say that IS the audience. And when you consider the sales of Viagra… Well, I’d say there are a lot of these men out there. I don’t have figures for the success rate of these ads however. They’d be far more difficult to track than, say, Viagara sales!

  4. I love it! That Scottie is so cute. They get the message across, addressing a fear pet parents may have, and without stooping to anything possibly offensive. This is my favorite so far! Thanks!

  5. Very cute! A very nice change from so many jokes I’ve seen on popular sitcoms and other commercials about how neutering = taking away a dog’s “manliness”.

    It baffles and amuses me when some people care so much about canine gender roles.
