Doug the Pug, Super Bowl Celebrity, is now an international sensation. Our heart is bursting with pride. Did you see our very own Doug the Pug in the 2020 Sabra Superbowl Commercial? Doug likes to ‘Mmus Pizza! We followers of Doug could have guessed that was coming!
In our Social Media Magnet courseware, we talk about Doug and his brand tagline, “King of Pop Culture.” and many semesters, we are fortunate to have Leslie, Rob, and Doug come speak to our class. The students always look forward to those special days and especially all the gracious photo ops that Leslie and Rob allow. To be honest though, I can’t help myself either. It’s not everyday you get to hang out with celebrities who star in Super Bowl commercials.
Leslie, Rob, and Doug: We are thrilled for your success. Thanks for representing Nashville and Belmont in always the classiest of ways. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon! Congrats on making the Super Bowl Ads! WOW! See the ad below:
