Considering how well retro 80's stuff is doing now, including TV programs like Stranger things, you would think these advertising companies would look a doing a somewhat updated version of some of these retro adverts. eg The spot advert.The fact is that many people now making buying decisions grew up during that period. There is also an innocence to them. The current advert is bleak and nasty IMO, and not something we should be watching to watch. Especially in todays world where mass shootings and violence are daily norms. It is almost as though the marketing company just used some B footage from those family violence adverts, to cobble together this adverts, so a pretty lazy type of advert.





Sounds like a plan. Get a cute Jack Russell, say he's Spot's great-grandpuppy, call him Sparky, have him chasing Pokémon and riding a hoverboard, rake in the bucks.
