The Schmakos brand is launching an online content series featuring candid interviews with the dog breeds of Australia. Entitled ‘Canine Confessions’, the series shows dogs admitting to the tactics they use to elicit tasty Schmakos treats from their owners – from deliberately getting trodden on, to wearing tartan.

The ‘Canine Confessions’ campaign is a digital first for Schmakos, featuring a huge amount of native content on multiple social platforms – including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

Ben Culligan, marketing director mars petcare said: “Schmakos has always focussed on the fun times you spend with your dog and this campaign is a celebration of the hilarious and creative things our dogs will do for treats.

“Creating quality social content, in a pragmatic way, is one of our agency’s strengths,” says DDB Melbourne creative director, Robbie Brammall. “For this campaign we shot everything in-house, and then used a programmatic approach to stitch the different executions together. The end result is lots of great entertaining content, They should go down pretty well with dog lovers on social media. I don‘t want this to sound like click-bait, but what they say next will shock you.”

The campaign launches online on the 24th August.

McCann’s Action-Packed Army Ad Plays Out Like A War Flick Or Video Game

Most army recruitment ads tend to steer clear of the blindingly obvious of military life – you get a gun to shoot the enemy or you get shot yourself. More so, agencies aren’t overly keen on promoting recruitment ads that are heavy on the guns or violence, preferring lifestyle or technical aspects of military life. Not so McCann’s new action-packed spot for the US […]
