Gizmo the Pug Saves Christmas in the New Vision Direct Advert

Gizmo the Pug, do you know him? Pas sûr? Think about it twice. He is the coolest pug in town and it’s very likely that you saw him last year in the Vision Direct’s Christmas Advert. He is the most famous dog on TV at the moment! Not only he is the cutest, but he is also the trendiest pug ever. You might remember him having a little accident last Christmas (over 1 million views on Facebook and Youtube) or even flirting with a lovely lady last summer. Guess what? He is back! And this year is even better as Gizmo the Pug saves Christmas in the New Vision Direct Advert.

Just for your eyes, the star in action this Summer…

In the previous videos, we got to see the funny side of our dearest friend. Sérieusement, just click here to see all the footage from behind the scenes. Gizmo has the best doggy humour ever! Even my dog is a fan… So imagine how jealous mon chien was when I told him that I was going to feature his idol on the blog this week!

Back to business here! I want to talk to you about the last Vision Direct’s Christmas Advert, not my dog! As you may have understood, Gizmo is back and this time, he is joined by Cuddles the Cat, who (oh surprise!) happens to be his rival!

A new character: a naughty chat

This year, we get to see another side of Gizmo as he is literally saving Christmas for an entire neighbourhood! I won’t tell you more as I don’t want to spoil it for you! But all you need to know is that Gizmo is the most generous dog ever! Another great feature for our favourite animal! And surely, that is what Christmas is about, right Mr Cuddles?

Now, enough talking about dogs and how cute they are. Alright, cat lovers, Mr Cuddles is cute as well, especially in his Christmas outfit.

Regardez la vidéo here and now!

C’est fait? Did you watch it? I hope you liked it as much as I did, as it really got me into the festive mood. Oh, and maybe I should get a pair of glasses like our favourite pug? They are really gorgeous and I reckon I would rock this look too!

After all, Vision Direct is one of the UK’s first and longest running online contact lenses and glasses retailer, which has been trusted by many customers to deliver affordable and high-quality eye care since 1998.

Joyeux Noël!

Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are my own! Of course, Gizmo is the cutest Christmas pug right now!

    This is so cool! Although I never saw the commercials and never owned a dog. I love them!

    Wow, I’m not sure I follow the story though. Does the dog have good eyesight or not? He electrocuted the cat, so maybe it was an accident, or maybe because he’s a dog he doesn’t like cats?

    Our first Christmas advert last year was mentioned alongside the likes of John Lewis and Sainsburys which was phenomenal and we therefore knew we had to bring Gizmo back this year and make the new campaign even more fun, playful and exciting for our audience.
