Katy Perry’s Pooch Makes Her Commercial Debut!

Nugget Perry stars in the hilariously honest Citi Double Cash card campaign.

It was only a matter time before Katy Perry’s glamorous Teacup Poodle pawed her way into the limelight. Well, it has finally happened. Nugget Perry is starring in her first national advertising campaign! In a statement to the press, Nugget Perry said, “I’ve traveled from stage to stage with Katy but it’s time to take my solo career to the next level and ride my own wagging tail. I’m as happy as a hound dog chasing a gut truck to be launching this new campaign with Citi.”  

Congratulations, Nugget!

Here she is in the director’s chair getting the job done! Like a good girl, she’s also helping promote her mom’s clothing line! It’s great to see that Nugget is being mature about her debut, saying, “It finally puts me on the pedestal on which I belong and leaves my sister friend Butters in the dust.”Apparently, they’re in friendly competition.

One of the two comedic commercials, for Citi’s Double Cash card, shows Nugget being fawned over by her dog momma Katy Perry while Katy’s assistant desperately tries to get her attention. Perry is devoting 100 percent of her attention to Nugget, but is there anything wrong with that?

Nugget seems to be enjoying the spotlight and the star treatment, especially from Katy!

The spot brings to attention the difference in what people say and what they actually mean, to highlight the Double Cash card’s transparent rewards program –1% unlimited cash back on purchases and an additional 1% as you pay for those purchases. Viewers watch as Perry and her assistant have a brutally honest exchange of words.

Katy’s assistant walks in, saying, “I’m going to invade your personal space to run some things by you.” Katy responds with “It’s going to look like I’m listening but I’m actually just paying attention to Nugget.” Unlike most (passive-aggressive) people, the Citi Double Cash card “Means What It Says.”

The ad campaign launches today, but we’ll have to wait until May 22nd for the spot featuring Nugget to air! As you can see, Nugget is eagerly waiting, too! If you’d like to see Nugget before then, follow Nugget Perry on Instagram, or you can take a look at some adorable pictures of baby Nugget on the next page!

To appease you, here is one of the two Citi Double Cash card commercials. Enjoy!

We have promised and delivered on cuteness.

This is the first official picture of Nugget Perry and her mom. Her fluffiness makes her appear bigger than she actually is. Without a doubt, Nugget could fit comfortably in a teacup, maybe even with room to spare. The name Teacup Poodle makes a lot more sense now, right?

It’s shocking when you compare before and after photos. Is this really Nugget in both pictures? It’s really her! On the left, we see Nugget before her makeover appointment. On the right, we see Nugget after she’s been pampered from head to paw.

Okay … I admit this isn’t a photo of baby Nugget, but it still deserves to be here. This photo was taken at a speed-dating event for dogs that Katy and Nugget attended. Katy was there for moral support and to make sure Nugget didn’t settle for any old hound!

That’s all for now! If you need us, we’ll be counting down the days until May 22nd.
