Albert is quite a ham, as you can seem from the starring role he plays in this highly acclaimed Axe Deodorant ad, It was a finalist in the Best TV Commercial category at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival in France. The young man in the video isn't his Dean or Kyle, his real trainers, but an actor whose age matches Axe's demographic. And it only took 4 weeks, not 6 months to train him like the it says in the ad!
Albert plays soccer during recess from Fish School. Notice how he starts at half field, drives the ball towards the goal, shoots and scores. All without using hands OR feet - his head works just fine! YouTube Video
Like Albert, your fish will be eating right out of your hand after Fish School training! YouTube Video
Albert can also do the limbo. How low can he go! YouTube Video
Albert swims through a hoop. He turns on his side to squeeze through - He's one determined fish! YouTube Video
Albert swims through a long tunnel - Circus lions have nothing on him! YouTube Video
If you like
football, Albert is happy to oblige! Here he shows off his running
Albert has also learned to play fetch, retrieving the ball from the bottom of his tank and nudging it back to his owner's waiting hand. Football fans might call it a hand-off! YouTube Video
Albino Oscars named Snow and Ice are also students in Fish School. Here they are practicing their hoop swimming. Both the fish and their owners are happy, as you can tell from the singing! YouTube Video
Not to be outdone by Albert, Snow has learned soccer too. Notice how much bigger Snow is than Albert, relative to the same goal. In fact, notice Snow's soccer ball - we had to get an extra large one, so he wouldn't swallow it! YouTube Video
Last, but not least, check out the pictures and short demonstration video of all the incredible tricks our latest and best Fish School graduate, a common goldfish named Comet, has learned to perform using the new R2 Fish School Training Kit. Enjoy!
This clip of Comet learning the slalom trick is particularly impressive.
Finally, check out this video of Comet learning the limbo, complete with music. Pretty amazing - huh?!
