The gendarmes of the North, the coronavirus epidemic and a dog doing his personal hygiene are three things which, a priori, have no reason to be associated. Yet it is, and the logic is relentless.
It’s a surprising combo that is not a charade. And if, of course, this incredible association is based on humor, the message delivered is all that is serious. Thus, last Thursday, the northern gendarmerie posted on its Facebook page a video that had been suggested to them by the adolescents involved in Operation Carado, a device for the prevention of gender-based violence. The short film, about 30 seconds long, is an advertisement for Mondou, a Quebec brand of pet accessories.
Barrier gestures do not only protect against Covid-19
Featured by Culture Pub, the ad shows a dog cleaning its parts before jumping up to lick the faces of his mistress’s friends who have come to dinner. Horrified, the latter therefore declines the traditional kiss to prefer the elbow check on the pretext of promoting barrier gestures against the coronavirus epidemic. Hygiene has many virtues.
“To not miss anything in the face of the risk of a pandemic linked to Covid-19, the young volunteers of Carado manage to find some pearls on social networks to remind people of the importance of barrier gestures”, congratulate the gendarmes after sharing the publication.
