Old English sheepdog lends voice for Dulux campaign

The Dulux brand mascot speaks his mind on paint quality for the first time in over 65 years.

So what goes on in the head of Dulux's old English sheepdog? Turns out that the brand mascot cares a lot about the durability of paint and colour schemes. He is out on a mission to educate the Aussie and Kiwi homeowners on the risks of using inferior paints. 

Ad Nut is impressed that the creature knows his stuff well and how he could sniff out the pepperoni floating in mid-air. Ahh, those canines and their sense of smell!

Besides bespoke film executions for social, pre-roll, TV and cinema, the BMF campaign is supported by OOH, print, online, social and in-store. The sheepdog will retire behind the scene for this task, human paint experts will be lending their advice on home painting tips.
