That Camry Commercial Corgi Post Was A Hit

On October 14th, ilovecorgis.com revealed to the world that Corgis were in fact featured in the new Toyota Camry Commercial.  Much like when the Washington Post first broke the Watergate Scandal, there were countless hours of behind the scenes debate on how to reveal this bombshell.  Perhaps years from now it will be made into a movie.  A Press release?  A Press conference?  An Op-Ed in the (remaining) national major print newspapers?  After it was decided at the highest levels that print media was no longer the forum to expose this landmark discovery, a more contemporary medium was selected.  Hence the Camry commercial Corgi blog post.  Blogs and newspapers are pretty much the same these days now anyway.

And then the hits started coming.  Hits of course refer to visits and visitors to the site.  On day 1, only 7 people checked out the Camry commercial Corgi post.  Day 2 it was up to 23.  It has had as many as 71 visits in a single day and for the past two weeks, that one post has averaged 32 visits per day.  Of course visits to the Camry commercial Corgi post have spurned additional visits to other posts on the site as visitors have undoubtedly discovered the high quality content produced at ilovecorgis.com.  The public has spoken.  The groundswell of desire for Corgi information relating to affordable Japanese sedans is palpable.  Just wait until Honda figures this out and gets into the Corgi game.  The media and creative departments at ilovecorgis.com are pulling overtime trying to keep up with demand.  No longer are Corgis just luxury dogs for the Rolls Royce crowd.  No longer are Cardigans cast to the wayside for their more popular Pembroke Corgi cousins.  Not if ilovecorgis.com can help it.  Not on our watch.  A revolution is coming.

The Best Corgi Halloween Costumes The Internet Has To Offer

Look, ilovecorgis.com isn’t just a Corgi conglomerate focused on fun and games.  Here at HQ it’s also about information and knowledge.  After careful, time consuming research, we can now unveil what are considered to be the best Corgi Halloween costumes seen on the internet.  And the good news is, there is still time to get some of these.

For the sci-fi crowd, there are Star Wars and Star Trek themed costumes.

Now the Ewok costume is a perfect Halloween costume in terms of simplicity, and quite frankly, Corgis are much like the Ewoks of this galaxy and not one far, far away.

In sticking with a movie-themed costume, how about Corgi-san from Karate Kid (or Karate Corgi?):

Now, if you’ve ever spotted a Corgi standing on a dock post and sunset practicing the indefensible crane technique…well, I’ll just say if you’re lucky enough to snap a photo of it, please pass it along to ilovecorgis.com, we’d love to see it.

This one is for Will:

Now, to get a bit historical, what about a Napoleon Costume?

This costume gets bonus points for accuracy as it is safe to say that Corgis may be known from time to time as having a Napoleon complex…

If you are a fan of Robin Hood, you might like:

And though Bling might not rob from the rich, she will certainly give to the poor, if by poor you mean her poor hungry belly.

But if you are a more law abiding individual with no desire for mischief:

This one might win some costume contests in Maine:

If you are a big fan of the “Where’s Waldo” books:

Waldo Corgi

“Where am I? I’m right here! Look down next time!”

This one also fits Corgis particularly well since Bling LOVES to hide in bushes.

And lastly, if you’re looking for an inexpensive, easy Corgi costume, and you’re going to a 21+ party, you could consider:

Bud Light Corgi Halloween Costume

“No, I’m not 21…wait, are you counting in dog years?”
http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/corgis-in-costumes#1gne2t4

Just don’t leave your Corgi as the designated driver.  Bling needs at least a few phone books on the seat, and wooden blocks on the pedals just to drive.  And, as Bling is not 21, she certainly does not endorse Bud Light or any other alcoholic product.  Have a happy Halloween!

This Corgi Frisbee Video Is All Business

Now it appears that Corgi videos have caused a brief (or hopefully not so brief) uptick in the ilovecorgis.com internet traffic.  Like any astute CEO with an ear to marketing and a paw on the pulse of society, Bling has immediately ordered more videos!  And thus I present a Corgi frisbee video:

It looks like this Corgi had a brief appearance on America’s Funniest Home Videos.  This makes him (or her) perhaps the most famous Corgi, Queen’s Corgis not included.  But Bling herself can’t help but admire the determination of this Corgi.  He’s saying, “What you won’t bend down and pick up the frisbee to throw it again?  Fine, here it is!”

Bling isn’t much for frisbees but she does the exact same thing with a tennis ball.  She’ll nudge it at you indefinitely until you HAVE to pick it up.  Then she’ll bounce around until you throw it.  If only we could teach her to toss it up to us, she’ll have one-upped this little guy in the Corgi frisbee video.  He’s honestly got the frisbee fling down to a science.  Here at ilovecorgis.com HQ salute you frisbee-flicking Corgi and your passion and heart for the game of fetch.
