Cows put to work in Anchor Butter’s factory

In recent spots, we've seen cows tap-dancing and jogging in sneakers. Now, CHI & Partners shows them working in a bustling factory for Britain's Anchor Butter. I also work with a few cows, but it's hardly the same thing. I wish they'd keep their hands off my lunch. According to the ad, Anchor's been "Made by cows since 1886." Yeah, just try hiring goats since the cows unionized. The country-twang version of Guns N' Roses' "Paradise City" on the soundtrack is an awful choice of moozak. But the chunks of sod in the vending machine almost makes up for it. Putting grass in humans' vending machines would be a great way to boost company loyalty, though at the expense of productivity.
