NEWSFLASH: What’s with all the #waggytails at #TellTails this week? Following the release of the new o2 PRIORITY #waggytails TV advert, the TellTails workshop is bursting with anticipation. Everyone has an extra wiggle in their waggle, thrilled that the TellTails message will be spread directly to the homes of millions of will-be-wagglers. The short advert, shows a bustling city scene filled with young Londoners so excited with their o2 PRIORITY privileges, that they’re wagging their DOG TAILS in the sunshine.
O2 HAVE CAUGHT ON TO THE TellTails WAGGLE – #waggytails! “In the whole history of the world is but one thing money can’t buy….to wit – the wag of a dog’s tail”. Josh Billing, this 19th century humourist knew it way back then. We at TellTails knew it in 2010 when we first road tested our canine collection to gasping faces, full of giggles as we fitted them on, and now o2 have caught on to the fun that can be had with a wearable tail. For the first time in history, we’re all in-sync. The wag is here, the message is strong and TellTails fancy dress tails are unleashing all over the nation.
