Mr. Boom Boom

I don't know if everyone has seen the ad for Chase Bank on television that is prolific here on the left coast in the last week. It features a white pygmy pig who is going walkies on a leash with his forever family. The background music is like rap or something like that and the only words I can make out are "Mr. Boom Boom." Yep, that is Ricky, Mr. Boom Boom!

Put some long black and white hair on this pig and it is Ricky Ricardo! He is about the same size as Ricky. That pig has the same self confident "attitude" as Ricky. He has that same wiggle when he walks like Ricky. That Pig cuddles the same way that Ricky does! That pig is Ricky Ricardo incarnate!

Every time we see that commercial, a couple of times an hour, Momi and Popi burst out laughing. Oh Ricky, you are a travesura (trouble maker).

LOL I can see a little Ricky-Havanese in the pigs swagger for sure! Thanks for finding the commercial Eveningpiper.

I did agility training with my previous hav. In our class were 9 dogs and 1 pig. Phil, the pig, was the smartest student in the class! In addition to becoming an agility pig, he was also a Porcine Good Citizen who visited patients in a local hospital.

I've had a hard time eating pork since that class.

That is AWESOME! Are there any videos out there of him at work? Love it.

He was featured on our local news, but I don't see anything on YouTube about Phil. However, if you google 'agility pig' you'll see one that looks a lot like him!
