DOGTV, the first ever TV channel for dogs.Been There, Done That
New launch campaign for DOGTV, the first ever TV channel for dogs.
Auditions for the dog were quite short. In fact, we fell in love with our doggy immediately. But finding “the right voice” proved to be much more difficult. 35 actresses auditioned … before that pampered-but-bored, “was-it-a-pearl-necklace?” voice, was born.
Been there, done that? Finding the right voice for Harlan the dog, wasn’t much easier… We sampled voices from coast to coast. 24 voice anchors tried to capture his spirit, but only the 25th nailed it… that sleepy-tired-bored-to-death voice.
I don’t like focus groups. I never liked them.
But two months ago, when we started working on the DOGTV pre-launch campaign for DirecTV, things changed. (Truth is,) I can’t but enjoy the focus group Asaf Hanuka created for us for the #1st print ad.
After the “Focus group” it’s time for “Dressing room”.

And now, we’re all ready for the “Set”.
