Drontal and Advantage Advert Music – Singer and song information for the new ‘Trust Drontal, Gain an Advantage’ TV ad.
Song Title: Walking The Dog.
Original Artist/Singer: Rufus Thomas.
Original Version Available For Download From: Amazon and iTunes.
Drontal’s new TV and YouTube advert features the appropriately named song ‘Walking The Dog’. Although the version you hear sung in the ad is apparently a cover, to me it sounds just like Rufus Thomas’ original.
First recorded by the American R&B and blues singer-songwriter in 1963, the track was then covered the following year by The Rolling Stones. Since then, a diverse selection of bands and singers have released their own versions of the song, including The Everly Brothers, Sandie Shaw, Aerosmith and The Who’s frontman Roger Daltrey.
For its writer Rufus Thomas, Walking The Dog achieved a number 10 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
The above ‘Inseparables’ video was posted to Drontal Advantage’s YouTube channel on the 1st of February, 2016. Featuring the slogan ‘Trust Drontal. Gain an Advantage’, the commercial shows a boy and his dog growing-up, and enjoying life together.
We see the pair dressed up as superheroes, out on adventures as they fight crime together. The youngsters canine companion also seems to have developed a taste for birthday cake, taking a sneaky lick as the candles are blown out each year.
Drontal and Advantage are designed to protect cats and dogs against intestinal worms and fleas.
