Family dog, talking plant and The Easter Bunny enjoy annihilation of cockroaches in Mortein ad

Santa, The Easter Bunny, a talking dog and plant all feature as part of an advertisement for Mortein’s new indoor and outdoor surface spray, celebrating the product’s long-term effectiveness.

The ad sees cockroaches scurrying across the floor before being zapped in front of the various characters. As the cockroach dies, Santa shouts ‘woo’, as do the children, the dog and a plant.

It appears to be the newest advertisement for the brand in over a year. Last year’s campaign explored “How to” manage insects, such as protecting homes from cockroaches, and keeping flies and mosquitoes away.

Host/Havas is Mortein’s creative agency of record.
