Wells Fargo Helps Pay When This Cute Puppy Makes A Mess On Pam’s Rug

In the fall, Wells Fargo had a big hit with their adorable cat commercial. Now they have a short ad demonstrating on easy it is to pay people on your phone. This Golden Retriever puppy had an accident on Pam’s rug, and her owners pay Pam $150 for cleaning. A blog viewer wrote to me asking if I knew who plays Pam. I don’t, but I will definitely add that if I find out.

Sprint’s Paul Chats On A Park Bench With A Woman And Her Golden Retriever

As you now probably know, Paul Marcarelli, Verizon’s former “Can You Hear Me Now” guy, is now doing ads for Sprint. The campaign is actually somewhat annoying, but this spot has a few things going for it. First, that cute Golden Retriever who barks in approval of Sprint. Aww. And second, the yoga pants-clad woman Paul is chatting with. She’s played by Lauren Braton, and I find her to be super attractive.

Chevy’s Emotional Dog Commercial

This Chevrolet ad was one of the finalists for the company’s film competition, where the winner would be shown during the Oscars. It didn’t win, but has become quite popular on YouTube. It’s not hard to see why it’s a sentimental favorite. The tale of Maddie the Golden Retriever is beautifully filmed and has obviously struck a chord with many. Told in reverse flashback, we first see a young woman saying goodbye to Maddie, and then we see all her important life experiences with Maddie accompanying, all the way back to when Maddie is a puppy and her owner is a young girl. And it’s all tied into Chevy…the car is also “a best friend for life’s journey.” Some have appreciated the artistic value of the ad, while decrying the Chevy-centric message as manipulative and cloying. But isn’t all advertising manipulative? What do you think?
