Oh, L.A.: Billboard Pitches Doggy Plastic Surgery
Oh, Los Angeles: Home of vapid image consciousness shallow enough to create the need for plastic surgery for your canine companion. Hence this billboard asking "Is your dog a total 'dog'?" Well, sort of.
As much as fake boobs and super plump lips are popular L.A. embellishments, so is this sign.
Dr. Armond is not real--he's a character on the upcoming Comedy Central venture "Kroll Show." So, this billboard is also a bit of L.A. entertainment fakery, masking its real purpose as advertising for the new series, which premiers in mid-January.
The "Kroll Show" features the sketch comedy of Nick Kroll, "satirizing our television obsessed culture and the rabid fan base it breeds." Among the characters in rotation will be "Bobby Bottleservice and Fabrice Fabrice," from Kroll's stand-up routines, and "the power team of 'The PubLIZity Girls,' with Jenny Slate," as well as Armond, the plastic surgeon for dogs.
Psst, the URL on the billboard goes to this Comedy Central video clip:
