Untapped Cities writer Benjamin Waldman snapped these photos of a parody Dr. Zizmor ad in the New York subway today on the E train. A quick check of the website puppylift.com reveals the source: Dr. Armond aka Nick Kroll on Comedy Central! The famous, long-running ad is recreated–font, colors and layout. But tag line is now “Is your dog a total dog?” and in place of Dr. Zizmor is Dr. Armond with a golden retriever licking his face. The before and after photos show a bull dog transformed into a Jack Russell terrier. In place of the success quote from Dr. Zizmor is Armond’s supposed quote:
“You wouldn’t buy an ugly sofa; you wouldn’t talk to an ugly person. I only hire very attractive people and my third wife is one of the most beautiful women I know.”
Here are some original Dr. Zizmor ads to refresh your memory:
