Good morning! (Or whatever time it is in your part of the world!) Last night, I saw this ad for the first time (and then saw it a million more times and loved it each and every time!), and Shaker FloraFlora happened to leave it in comments, too, so let's all watch it and/or read the transcript and talk about how adorable it is, and also abot how advertising doesn't have to be terrible!

Video Description: Over plucky guitar music and a folksy song, comes video of a young orangutan with hir arm around a blue-ticked hound dog; a mama cat nursing ducklings along with her kittens; a brindle bulldog and a lion cub playing together; a blond shepherd mix pushing a ginger tabby cat in a baby stroller; a baby rhino trotting alongside a sheep; a baby elephant and a sheep running around and then playing in the dirt together; the orangutan leaping at the hound dog and then flopping on the ground; a yellow lab swimming in the sea with a dolphin; a black lab standing on top of an elephant, then leaping off hir back into the water, then, back on land, sitting on hir leg panting happily; a white cockatoo stealing spaghetti out of a pot and giving it to a husky; a brown tabby cat opening a door for a tiny terrier; a deer and a black great dane running and leaping together in tall grass; a monkey hopping up on a horse's back; a baby goat hopping up on a horse's back and immediately falling off; a wombat riding a tortoise; a white and silver tabby kitten playing with a golden retriever's ear; two lemurs snuggling with a lion cub; a deer grooming a golden retriever; a tiger and a bear nuzzling each other's giant faces; the orangutan standing beside the hound dog with hir arm around hir, then lifting hir arms over hir head and pratfalling backwards onto the grass.

When we saw that advert last night, Iain said: "That commercial makes me happy to have an Android device!" Aww. Me too!
