The Farmer’s Dog won big during this year’s Super Bowl with a heartwarming commercial targeted at dog lovers. Have you watched it yet?
This year, every Super Bowl commercial seemed heavily based on Gen X or Millennial nostalgia. (That’s my kind of nostalgia!) But, in all honesty, it was The Farmer’s Dog commercial that won me over. I barely even remember the other ads, not to say they weren’t good, but the pet company’s Forever spot is the only one I’ll remember.
Will this one impact you if you’re not a dog or an animal lover? Maybe not. Given that it’s an ad for a pet company, particularly for dog owners, who cares? But I need to warn you, The Farmer’s Dog goes for the heartstrings, and you will want to grab your tissues ahead of time. I’m tearing up just thinking about watching it again. The ad celebrates the love between a dog and its owner; in my opinion, there is nothing like that special bond. (Excuse me while I go hug my dog.)
