Pets at Home asked us to develop a social-first campaign to advertise their VIP Subscribe & Save flea treatment. But with fleas being so tiny, gruesome and ugly to look at, how could we show them, yet keep the campaign entertaining, watchable, and family-friendly?

We delivered it across a fully-integrated media plan, including YouTube pre roll, Facebook, Instagram, digital display, national press, and in-store activations.
