This post may make you spontaneously explode – the cuteness in these five ads featuring animals is just too much for the heart to bear. Watch these 5 commercials to see just how effective animals and their fun personalities can be when promoting a brand’s story.
Budweiser’s “Lost Puppy”
There’s nothing more beautiful than the friendship between a man and his dog … and his horse. In this commercial, we take a harrowing and emotional journey with a puppy who is just trying to get back home to his best friend, a Clydesdale horse.
Android’s “Friends Furever”
Friends come in all adorable shapes and sizes. This ad, which has been viewed over 30 million times on YouTube, uses lovable scenes of unlikely animal friendships to highlight the notion that we can all work together and be there for one another.
BuzzFeed & Purina’s “Puppyhood”
“You should enjoy being a puppy for as long as you can.” Do you remember those first few months with your new pet? This comical spot chronicles the highs and lows many pet parents go through when caring for their first furry family member.
Truth Initiative’s “#CATmageddon”
Smoking = No Cats = No Cat Videos. This montage of cat videos pushes the message that second-hand smoke can be detrimental to animals (specifically cats). The upbeat music is meant to attract teens and young adults – many of whom don’t care enough about themselves when it comes to smoking but they sure do care about the health of their pets.
Ad Council’s “Risk Test Hedgehogs”
84 million Americans have prediabetes and that’s why it is such an important issue for us here at the Ad Council. In our latest work for our Type 2 Diabetes Prevention campaign, we find that the perfect way to spend a minute is to watch a cute video of hedgehogs AND take a prediabetes risk test. Also, if you love this spot, take a look at the French Bulldog puppies and baby goats versions of this ad.
