Happy Hour and Animal Friends Insurance, a winning combination

Happy Hour are pleased to showcase the latest in our successful series of animated adverts for Animal Friends Pet Insurance. This latest stop-frame animated advert, released a few months ago, features old favourites Girlie the Cat and Cracker the Dog this time in the role of race commentators, explaining why Animal Friends is a ‘winning combination for you and your pet’.

The humourous advert uses a race between a rag tag assortment of characters to highlight Animal Friends’ status as a ‘champion insurer’

The race is between characters that will be all too familiar to pet owners, we have a lazy ginger cat who doesn’t even start the race, an elderly dog representing the fact that Animal Friends covers pets of any age, a competitive poodle, hyper puppy and snooty cat.

This advert was produced by our in-house team of animators in Bristol, who are highly experienced in stop-frame, 2D and 3D animation.
