New work: PetSmart Poop Bag

Most print ads are pretty crappy. We’re proud to say we’ve made the crappiest one yet. To relaunch the PetSmart brand, we didn’t want to just tell pet owners that we are your partner through the highs and lows of raising a pet, we wanted to show it. We partnered with Entertainment Weekly and People Magazine to insert custom printed poop bags detailing all the ways PetSmart is here to help you through Pethood (Parenthood + Pets). Yes, that’s a thing.

It took some trial and error (the worst kind imaginable) to find a poop bag to withstand the printing and insertion process while still being able to pick up, well, you know. And while it’s weird to consider it a success when your ad can hold poop, this was a glowing success.PetSmart_PoopBagCredits:
