Yesterday, I featured the excellent 'Pet Cat' spoof infomercial made for the Animal Foundation shelter in Las Vegas. If you are are cat-lover, like myself, I'm sure you will have appreciated that. However, I wouldn't want dog-lovers to feel left out, so here's their other ad — 'Pet Dog'.
1. Before showing the video(s), get your students to brainstorm possible uses for a dog (and/or cat).
2. Organize a debate on the topic of 'Which are more useful? Cats or dogs?'
3. Get students to talk about their own pets.
4. Get students to film their own infomercial for another pet animal (easily done with tablets or smartphones and an app like Videolicious).
