New Work: STAINMASTER “Accident”

To introduce STAINMASTER’s new PetProtect carpeting system, GSD&M created the “UnShame Your Pet” campaign, based on the “pet shaming” Internet phenomenon. Pets featured in the work are caught in the act of being pets—tracking mud through the house and rolling around on the carpet. Fortunately, their owners have installed the PetProtect™ carpet system, so there’s no need for shame or worry; cleanup is easy. The PetProtect™ system allows consumers to “UnShame” their pets.

Creative elements will include digital display banners, print and a custom PetProtect™ mark, in addition to two 30-second TV spots and online video, both of which feature Brenda Lee’s “I’m Sorry” track. The campaign will run through February on national and cable programming and online properties.
