As it turns out Al Trautwig isn’t the most annoying thing on OLN-TV right now. It’s the microphone wielding sock puppet doggy formerly employed by Pets.com. He’s been hired as the BAR-NONE pitchman, and can be seen two or three times an hour during OLN-TV’s Tour de France coverage.
The advertisement opens with the puppet approaching a well-dressed young woman sitting on a bus stop bench. He asks her if she’s been waiting long, she responds affirmatively and adds that she’s late. He suggests she needs a car, she says she has bad credit. A well-dressed young man then approaches with the same problem. He makes the call to BAR-NONE finds out they’re going to extend him credit so he can get a car.
The message is clear. If you’re waiting at a bus stop there must be something wrong with you. Additionally, you’re open to questioning by random microphone wielding sock puppets while you wait.
