The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh yes! They’re all on this list of our favorite animals singing in commercials. Except for tigers, oddly enough no one’s made a commercial with a tiger singing “Tubthumping,” so get on it advertisers of the world! The adorable singing animals on this list are selling everything from mid sized SUVs, to milk, and even healthcare. There’s really nothing that a cute singing animal can’t sell. If you don’t believe us, enjoy this run down of all the best animals who sing in commercials, and tell us you don’t want to buy what they’re selling.
 

Not only are there plenty of puppies and kittens singing on this list, but there are also animals that you wouldn’t normally assume would love to belt out a tune. No matter how ferocious the beast or where it is on the food chain, every animal turns into a cutie patootie the moment they start singing. Except for amblypygi; those things give us the heebie jeebies. We’re shuddering as we think about it. Now that we’ve put the image of a spider, scorpion hybrid in your head, why not try to forget about it by checking out this list of our favorite animals singing in commercials?

Vote up your favorite commercial that features a singing animal. And if there’s an advertisement featuring singing critters that we missed, then feel free to add it to the list.

Lambs Singing: It's a Holi... is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Lambs Singing: It's a Holiday Miracle
Even though "baby lambs singing Christmas carols" sounds like an incredibly specific genre of film that you'd find on Netflix, we don't care. We could watch these fluffy babies sing Russian death metal and it would be adorable.

Jingle Barks is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Jingle Barks
Of course Pedigree has a commercial with adorable dogs singing "Jingle Bells." We'd be disappointed if they didn't. We can't wait for Christmas to play this commercial on repeat.

Yodeling Cat is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Yodeling Cat
You know when you can't take your eyes off something because you're not sure if it's the best thing or the worst thing you've ever seen? This ad for Walmart is like that.

Hits of the '80s is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Hits of the '80s
This commercial for Geico will make you want to buy a bird and try to teach it how to sing our favorite songs of the '80s. We hope parakeets like Morrissey!

Animals Sing for the BBC is listed (or ranked) 5 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Animals Sing for the BBC
If you want us to watch your commercial on repeat for hours on end all you have to do is include a shot of squirrels playing saxophone.

Only You Can Prevent Forest Fi... is listed (or ranked) 6 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires and Dig Through Your Neighbor's Trash
We didn't know about Rita Raccoon until we found this PSA from the '70s, and now that we've found her, we can't stop watching her hypnotizing head bob as she sings about preventing forest fires. 
7
Forest Chorus is listed (or ranked) 7 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Forest Chorus
A man gets more than he bargained for in a Jeep ad when an entire forest joins him to sing "Rock Me Gently." The part where the wolf devours a bird is a little frightening, but hey, singing squirrels! You win again Jeep, you always do.
8
This Dog's Got Soul is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
This Dog's Got Soul
This good boy looks so happy when he's riding in his mom's Volkswagon! The next time we need a confidence booster, we're putting this commercial on repeat.
9
Costa Rica Cares is listed (or ranked) 9 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Costa Rica Cares
In your heart of hearts, you know that these animals aren't really singing, but you should probably watch this video a few more times and then take a trip to Costa Rica to find out for sure.
10
Opera Bunny is listed (or ranked) 10 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Opera Bunny
We were already on board with Skittles, but when they released this super weird commercial with a mega cute bunny singing opera, we threw our hands up and professed our love for the sweet treats. If we could watch one gif forever, it would be of the man running through the rain with the singing bunny. 
11

The KIA Soul Hamsters Teach the True Meaning of Party Rock
Please don't judge us for loving this commercial. It's just that we never understood the true meaning of Party Rock until computer animated hamsters showed us the light. 
12
Gimme Gimme That Filet O' Fish is listed (or ranked) 12 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Gimme Gimme That Filet O' Fish
We probably wouldn't have included this commercial if it weren't so weird. The way the Big Mouth Billy Bass turns and sings "gimme back that filet o' fish" is like something out of a David Lynch movie. Who is running the McDonald's marketing department? Can we buy them a drink?
13
Classical Kittens is listed (or ranked) 13 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Classical Kittens
We were on the fence about this Quiznos commercial until we noticed that one of the cats was clearly chewing on his trumpet. Now we can't get enough.

Good Luck Getting "Rice Rice Baby" Out of Your Head
If anyone's going to rap about a rice and fruit combination in the style of "Ice Ice Baby," it's going to be this bear from Muller.
15
More Rapping Cows Please! is listed (or ranked) 15 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
More Rapping Cows Please!
The folks behind this commercial for California Milk know what America wants to see. And what we want to see is cows in the shower rapping.
16
A Horse? A Horse of Course is listed (or ranked) 16 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
A Horse? A Horse of Course
It seems like DirecTV wasn't sure who they wanted to advertise to, so they covered all their bases with a model babe, a desert island, and a singing horse voiced by Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords. Now we can't get "there's a lady on my back" out of our heads.
17
Singing for Their Supper is listed (or ranked) 17 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Singing for Their Supper
Honestly, we're a little confused about why the dogs in this very '80s Milk Bone commercial are singing the word "soft" over and over again. But it doesn't really matter as long as we get to keep seeing their smiling faces.
18
Non-Mutant Singing Turtle is listed (or ranked) 18 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Non-Mutant Singing Turtle
This Nikon commercial is a play on the old Looney Tunes frog cartoon and it's kind of great. We really like this little guy's moves. 
19
Quiznos Serves Up Some Nightma... is listed (or ranked) 19 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Quiznos Serves Up Some Nightmare Fuel
Somebody in marketing at Quiznos is probably a failed horror director, right? Yes, this commercial's horrifying, but these rats will always hold a special place in our hearts.

You Can't Go Wrong With a Clas... is listed (or ranked) 20 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
You Can't Go Wrong With a Classic
This commercial for Meow Mix wasn't the first ad that featured animals singing, but it may have kickstarted the revolution. Not only are the cats adorable, but this commercial introduced us to the concept of "ocean flavor."
21
Jazz Monkeys is listed (or ranked) 21 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Jazz Monkeys
Technically, none of the monkeys in this commercial for Red Rose Tea are singing, but they're all playing instruments and that's good enough. Can you imagine how hard it was to shoot this commercial?
22
Simply the Greatest of All Tim... is listed (or ranked) 22 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Simply the Greatest of All Time Doesn't Have the Same Ring to It
In what appears to be a commercial for Norwegian goat cheese (or maybe olives? Or bread?), this beautiful goat belts out a hearty rendition of "Simply the Best." You'll be booking a flight to Norway after one viewing.
23
Don't You Want Me Baby? is listed (or ranked) 23 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Don't You Want Me Baby?
Foster Farms speaks to the '80s heart beating in every chest with this commercial of chickens clucking The Human League's classic "Don't You Want Me." Yes chickens, we want you, we definitely do.
24

We Built This Kitty on Rock & Roll
Any time we're feeling blue, we throw on this commercial by Three (a British telecom company) and sing along with this flat faced sweetie who loves Jefferson Starship.

Thanks a Lot Obama is listed (or ranked) 25 on the list The Most Unforgettable Animals Singing in Commercials
Thanks a Lot Obama
No really, thanks. We love watching animals sing and you filled your commercial with singing dogs, cats, birds, and even a gold fish. We knew we voted for you for a reason.
