1. Andrex Puppy
The UK paper products company was faced with a problem during the early seventies while trying to release a new campaign. Television regulators blocked a television commercial concept featuring a little girl running through the house trailing a roll of toilet paper because it would “encourage wastefulness.” They solved the problem by replacing the little girl with a yellow labrador puppy in 1972, and the rest is history.
2. Gidget, Taco Bell
Who doesn’t remember (or even quote, on occasion) the ‘Yo quiero Taco Bell’ slogan coming from the brand’s super sidekick, Gidget. Garnering international fame and followers alike, it could be said that Gidget was born to play the most famous chihuahua in the world. Take a look at his acting chops in the commercial cross-promoting the Godzilla movie in 1998.
