    Celebrity Vet, Dr. Chris Brown, Diagnoses Agro the Puppet in Latest Uber Eats Ad

    Uber Eats continues to prove they can pull out all the celebrity stops in their ‘Tonight I’ll Be Eating’ campaign. Not long ago, it was Sir Patrick Stewart and Mark Hamill, today in Australia it’s veterinarian extraordinaire, Dr. Chris Brown, and beloved puppet of times gone by, Agro.

    The segment features Dr. Brown ordering an acai bowl with almond granola and organic vanilla protein powder. Agro settles on spicy vindaloo and 10 papadams.

    What follows is a thorough examination of Agro’s x-ray.

    “What even are you?”

    “A forty-year-old bath mat with a hand up its butt.”

    Strange interactions for those who’ve just met. According to Uber Eats, Agro was somehow unfamiliar with one of Australia’s best-known vets.

    “I’d never heard of Dr Chris before I signed onto this Uber Eats campaign, but to be fair I’ve been in a box for the best part of a decade,” recalled Agro, “He showed me pretty quickly how much of a class act he is. Dr Chris was very kind and gentle on set, he must moisturise his hands. All jokes aside I am looking forward to staying close with the big guy and I wouldn’t want to rule out more screen time with the good doctor in 2021.”

    Special Group’s latest spot was shot in Australia and will run across social, TV, out-of-home, on digital, radio and with influencers as well as on the popular podcast Aunty Donna.
