Mobile network Three are back with another bizarre animal mashup, this time combining a pug dog with a butterfly. The result? A Snapchat-loving Puggerfly.
What’s the music playing in this new TV and YouTube ad?
The soundtrack to this new ‘Oh Snap – Puggerfly’ commercial is the excellent ‘Africa’, which was released in 1982 by US rock band Toto. Featuring the lyrics “It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you. There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do”, the song peaked at number three on the official UK singles chart and later topped the American Billboard Hot 100.
Toto have also experienced chart success with ‘Rosanna’ and the Los Angeles-based groups 1978 debut single ‘Hold the Line’.
Following on from Three’s dolphin-sloth and giraffe-flamingo creations, this 2018 advert brings us the rather cute pug-butterfly combo.
The video, which was originally uploaded to Three UK’s YouTube channel on 26 April, 2018, describes how you’re a social butterfly on Snapchat, until you run out of data. But with Three, we’re told how you can use Snapchat all you like, without using up your precious data. The ad then finishes with the tagline “Snap yourself silly. Only on Three”. The UK mobile networks ‘Go Binge’ service also allows customers to enjoy Netflix, TV Player, Apple Music, Soundcloud and Deezer without eating into their data allowance.
