Nugget Perry, the adorable micro teacup poodle glued to Katy Perry’s hip, is about to become more than just the cute pup on the popstar’s Instagram. Continuing Citi’s Double Cash card “Means What It Says” campaign, Nugget stars alongside her mom in a witty commercial playing off of what we say in our lives versus what we actually mean.
For the canine’s national TV debut, Perry pampers Nugget in her custom doggy director’s chair as an assistant intrudes their personal moment. They share a hilariously honest conversation that ends in Perry stating, “It’s going to look like I’m listening but I’m actually just paying attention to Nugget.”
The clip featuring Nugget will make its national debut the week of May 22nd. “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,” says Katy — I mean Nugget — in a press release. The micro teacup poodle also brings in Perry’s other pet, the trouble-making Butters, into the mix. “It finally puts me on the pedestal on which I belong and leaves my sister friend Butters in the dust.”
