Advertising & Marketing

| May 25, 2010

Orkin's human-size talking insects have returned for a pair of spots from The Richards Group. The first ad features a giant cockroach showing up to leer at an amorous couple in a hot tub. The mood is totally killed when the bug lets his towel drop to the floor and asks if he can go "dipping skinny," too. In a second spot, ants try to deliver a couch but are foiled by the Orkin team.
