Never one to miss an opportunity on social media O2 has high jacked Innocent Drinks playful picture of a pup to promote its #bemoredog campaign.

Innocent Drinks posted the picture of the pooch covering the ‘No’ part of a ‘No dogs allowed’ sign to read ‘Dogs allowed’ on its Twitter feed yesterday prompting the mobile operator to reply.

Fans of all things furry themselves Innocent Drinks replied with a picture of a fox which features on its bottles asking O2: “Is this a fox? Is this a dog? Is this a fox trying to #bemoredog?” Spotting the opportunity Tango then got in on the banter offering up a picture of a dog dressed as a dinosaur.

To which O2 replied asking if they had any pictures of a dinosaur dressed as a dog and telling the soft drinks brand to bring back the Tango man as apparently he knew how to #bemoredog.

The jesting between the brands carried on with fans also posting pictures of dogs in various get ups including pugs in wedding dresses and dinosaur costumes, a dog dressed as two dogs carrying box, a farmer dog and a robot dog.

Betfair then got in on the act replying to Tango, O2 and Innocent Drinks offering up a picture of a sausage dog dressed as a giraffe.

The friendly exchange between the brands sees Innocent Drinks offering to #bemoredog for O2 by “getting confused and distressed whenever we see a hoover” this weekend, and O2 offering to “shake things up a little, embrace new ideas and enjoy the sun while it lasts” to be more smooth in return.

All this hilarity is very well until someone from Radox's PR is horrifically savaged while attempting to dress up an unwilling terrier for a twitpic.
