Slippery Character

by Syd Briscoe

NSPCA: “Fluffy” - 30s

This amusing ad for the South African NSPCA stars the only family member you get to choose... and one of the ones you don't. A young woman explains her decision to adopt a dog in the foreground, while something considerably less wholesome happens behind her.

The comic timing is great here, leaving the viewer wondering what's up with Mr Muscle and his olive oil right until the end. It's a well-timed ad in another way too, as family reunions over the holiday season will leave many of us wishing some of our relatives were furrier... or simply less embarrassing. Great work with a lovely sense of humour from Annex Films's Anton Visser.
