Commercial Break: Meaty treat in store for canine Emmerdale fans
Tonight, on the TV, during the Emmerdale ad break, history will be made. An advert will be screened that is aimed primarily at dogs. It’s for Baker’s Meaty Meals, which is primarily a dog food but which actually sounds pretty delicious on its own. Perhaps it’s the use of the word Baker’s that is giving us a kind of woozy, pre-lunch, pie-needing feeling.
The ad will contain special high-pitched sounds that can only be heard by our canine brethren. If successful, we assume that the pet food aisles of Brtitain’s supermarkets will be packed with pooches first thing tomorrow morning, each of them with money clasped in their paws as they try to get some of that lovely stuff that they heard about on the telly.
Here’s the original, untreated version of the ad from last year. If you don’t want your mutt’s mind to be meddled with, turn the TV off at about 7.15pm and show it this instead. You’re welcome.
