Tiger's "Dog Treat" Commercial
In addition to performing the required behaviors
for the commercial shoot, Tiger had to do nearly all of it while wearing a fat
suit! He had two of them, a self-colored black one for the outdoor scenes and
a yellow one for the gym scenes. When he was in the gym scenes Tiger wore sweat
bands, too. He had to do everything without being afraid of any of the huge,
looming equipment. He had to be trusted off lead, cooperate with the producers,
actors and film crew, plus he had to work well with Aphrodite, the poodle. He
worked a full, long day. We didn't realize it takes about 12 hours to make a
30 second commercial.
Also, you might enjoy viewing
some still shots we took that day…
The set was crowded with lots of crew and equipment.
