Kevin Nealon Has 99 Problems, Homeless Pets Being One of Those

Kevin Nealon, who the kids best remember as the stoned old politician on Weeds and the grown-ups know from his stint on SNL in the late 80s and early 90s, is here with a message for you. While there may be nothing you can do about glaciers, bulimic insomnia, or skateboarding in hospitals, you can remember to spay or neuter your pets or adopt some homeless, sad-eyed puppies from an animal shelter. You didn’t listen to Bob Barker‘s parting words on every episode of The Price is Right, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still time to make a difference.

The campaign, which includes billboards on the top the above spot, is the result of pro-bono work from Chiat-affiliated shop Let There Be Dragons for No-Kill LA. If you can’t make an accurate inference from its name, the organization seeks to prevent the euthanization of homeless animals in the Los Angeles area.

Find out more about Let There Be Dragons, which is being spearheaded by Mr. Lee Clow himself, by visiting their website here. Also, take a moment to admire the agency’s “office,” which looks like Sisqo’s tour bus circa 1999.
