Ad Nut

Bugs are not welcome, but cute ads about bugs are

Big, oddly polite, bugs get doors slammed in their faces in a fun spot from Orchard for the flea and tick protection product Simparica.

Ad Nut is no fan of bugs, especially termites, which Ad Nut executes with extreme prejudice when they try to infiltrate Ad Nut's oak tree palace. However, Ad Nut does like ads that feature human-sized bugs. That includes this one from Australia, for the brand Simparica, which protects murderous beasts and their homes from fleas and ticks.

However, another piece of work from Thailand remains Ad Nut's favourite commercial in the human-sized bug genre: see, "When 'chewing the scenery' is literal".
