Droga5's Wry Ads for Petco Imagine If People Were Pets

Wow, those wrestling mutt-brothers play kind of ... ruff.

"At first glance, pet health and wellness is something that can easily be dismissed as intimidating, overwhelming or some new age-y silliness. Largely because it's hard, as humans, to know what our pets really need," Droga5 senior copywriter Chase Kimball tells Muse. "But human wellness is serious business. And that got us thinking, how do we help people not dismiss the idea? How do we get humans to take pet health and wellness seriously? The answer was brutally simple. Just think about their wellbeing as you would your own. We just needed to help people put themselves in their pet’s shoes."

The mood's more disorienting than in-your-face bizarre. While it's sure to catch viewers off guard, this approach might not suit everyone's taste, as the humor doesn't hit home until the kicker at the end.

Actually, the spots get more enjoyable on repeat viewings—and that's especially true of the :45. Like an old dog revealing new tricks, the gags and wordplay improve, bringing the brand's pitch into sharper focus, once we know we're watching pets personified.

The Droga team praised Einstein for his genius touches at brining the concept to life.

"From the outset, his approach wasn’t about finding people that looked like pets, but people that could convey the emotions, wishes and desires of a pet, essentially matching the pet’s personality," explains senior art director Jesse Brown. "It’s a misdirect that lets you communicate so many things, and Harold just got how stand-alone the idea could be."

During the shoots, "there were so many unexpected moments of joy in the pets performances—a dog actually licking his lips at a bag of dog food, or a kitten excitedly wrestling with a curtain," says creative director George McQueen "The absurdity of it all, when you suddenly see the pet in place of the person, makes everything that came before it instantly funny."

Droga5, Director Harold Einstein Put People In Place Of Pets At Petco's "Cocktail Party"

Tuesday, Mar. 30, 2021


Put yourself in your pet’s shoes and you can get a leg up on your dog, cat or other animal kingdom companion’s health and wellness. That’s the premise of the “It’s What We’d Want If We Were Pets” campaign for Petco devised by Droga5 New York.

This hero film in the campaign, “Cocktail Party,” positions Petco as the health and wellness company for pets. Directed by Harold Einstein of production house Dummy, the piece has people personifying pets. They discuss their greater wants and needs and the Petco offerings that help them achieve the same level of care that you’d expect for yourself. The absurdity comes from thinking you’re watching a man or a woman talking about their needs--until you realize that you haven’t been watching a human. You’ve been watching and listening to a dog, a cat or a fish. And when that moment hits, everything that came before it becomes funny. Laughter after all can also help one maintain health and wellness.

Pet owners and pets aren't all that different -- they run to live longer, they eat healthy fuel their routines, and some even scratch and poke at things to hone their bodies and minds. By showing humans as pets, PETCO encourages everyone to exercise and play for a long and happy life -- just like what we'd want if we were pets.
