The Content of My Night Terrors

This commercial has been running incessantly on East Bay late night television for the past year or so. It's mesmerising. Wet Pets San Pablo!

Okay,
If they carry everything including hamsters and scorpions why not carry Pablo too. Why is it everything sans Pablo. If I were Pablo I would be perturbed about this.

Oh, George Segal's opening scene is now available, the dialogue is smashing, if I must say so myself.

I am looking for an actor to play Earl Townsweather, I would even hire Pablo if you know how to reach him.

Wait a sec...did they just try to rhyme "dogs" with "scorpi-ons"???

W-E-T-P-E-T-S.

Nice.

Stephanie -- You can actually use this video to quit smoking, but you must submit to Wet Pets

Spanish -- You wish you had it on your reel.

Pursey -- In my inhabitation of the character, I think I will wear military fatigues, much like wore in "The Bridge at Remargen" or "King Rat". If I'm going to do this shit, I'm doing it my way.

g. -- Do it strike as being particularly Hyphy?

Jay -- Unless you wet your pants, I have failed and Wet Pets San Pablo has failed doubly.

The voice-over sounds a little bit like Barney. Perhaps that is the intended effect. The effect this ad has on me is a reminder that I need to pee!

Thank you for highlighting this piece of marketing genius. I prefer my chinchillas on the dry side, though. Next time I go to Raley's, I'm going in with a hairdryer.
