Interspecies Romance / Advertising

Go To

  • Spuds McKenzie: What a playah! What a dog playah! What a dog playah with human And to add to the Squick, Spuds was played by a female dog.
  • The "twist ending" to an AirWick air-freshener commercial is that the talking elephant housewife's husband is a many-stinky-shoed centipede. In fact, many of that ad campaign's pairings are interspecies romances. Same-species romances are the minority.
    • If you are asking, the other ones are chimpanzee-skunk, giraffe-boar and penguin-bear. The last one's sons are pigs.
  • Fruit By The Foot has a commercial with a female lizard getting attracted to a young human male after mistaking the long strip of gum stretching from his mouth for a prehensile tongue.
  • Advertisement:
  • Pretty much all of the Orangina ads, but especially the big musical number with the bear and the deer.
  • This ad and this ad imply that the Kia Soul hamsters find human women attractive.
  • There's a commercial for a Dora the Explorer mermaid Dora toy, which shows a mermaid girl whose mother is a human and father is a giant fish.
  • This ad for the Bank of Queensland pairs a human hunter with a deer.
  • One of DirectTV's ad campaigns feature a man married to a human-sized living marionette. They even have a son.
  • Commercials for Sprint's Framily plan show Judy Greer married to a hamster. They have three kids: a man (played by Kyle Mooney who's only nine years younger than Greer), a southern boy, and a French girl.
  • UK advertisements for Silent Night mattresses. They started out simply having a hippo and a duck on opposite sides of the mattress to demonstrate how the mattress design prevented the duck sloping towards the hippo, but an Anthropomorphic Shift later, it's pretty clear they're a couple. One ad even features their kids.
