Budweiser’s ‘Puppy Love’ Super Bowl 2014 Ad Is Irresistibly Heartwarming [Video]

The new commercial, titled ‘Puppy Love,’ centers on a young pup that develops a deep bond with one of the horses.

Cuteness overload! Budweiser released their 2014 Super Bowl ad prior to the upcoming event on Sunday, February 2, and it has never been more adorable.

The 60-second spot tells the story of a ridiculously cute 10-week-old golden retriever and his best bud Budweiser Clydesdales that comes to the dog’s rescue, when it faces separation from home.

The actor Don Jeanes returns to his role as the head of Warm Springs Ranch in Missouri, where the beer company raises its Clydesdale horses. Actress Melissa Keller is introduced as the owner of a puppy adoption center next door.

A determined little pup manages to keep escaping to the horse farm to pay visits to his oversized friend Clydesdale. Eventually, a man arrives to buy the 10-month-old pup. He’s wearing sunglasses and is on his smartphone when the beautiful manager of the puppy center tries to hand over the dog. S

See what happens when this city slicker tries taking our hero away from his special friend, and the song “Let Her Go” by Passenger starts getting you misty-eyed.

With the theme and team of “Puppy Love,” Budweiser and its ad agency Anomaly are obviously hoping to repeat its victory as one of the big Super Bowl ad winners.

“The whole story is about connection,” Jake Scott, the ad’s director, told NBC’s ‘Today’. “There’s connection of heart, connection of spirit, connection of soul.”

“Puppy Love” is one of five new ads that Anheuser-Busch will debut for Budweiser and Bud Light during the Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be broadcast on FOX on Sunday, Feb. 2.

Budweiser has cornered the market on heartwarming Super Bowl ads. Its “Brotherhood” commercial, developed by the creative agency Anomaly, from last year’s big game, which crafted the story of a colt and its trainer, drew more than 1.9 million shares in just five days, making it the third-most popular Super Bowl ad ever.

Anheuser-Busch, which has purchased three minutes and 30 seconds of air time during the Super Bowl this year, has also teased another Budweiser ad, called “A Hero’s Welcome.” In the video the company throws a surprise welcome home parade Blackhawk helicopter pilot, 1st Lt. Chuck Nadd, when he returned home from a tour in Afghanistan in early January.

“Puppy Love,” hit the Internet in the wake of other Super Bowl ads teased ahead of Sunday’s big game: Scarlett Johansson teams with SodaStream in an effort to make soda water sexy, and British actors Ben Kinglsey, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Strong attempt to explain why their countrymen make the best villains in a spot for Jaguar cars.
