A rescue dog stars in a Super Bowl commercial!

here-weego-bud-light-commercial.jpgPlenty of Super Bowl ads featured dogs last night, but our favorite was Bud Light’s “Rescue Dog.” The spot features Weego, a real-life adopted dog who fetches Bud Light whenever anyone says, “Here, Weego!” (Or “Here we go.”)

Even better, Bud Light has pledged to donate $1 to help the adoptable pets at Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation in Walnut Creek, CA, for every new “like” to Bud Light’s Facebook page.

The Weego commercial is a refreshing change from some recent pet-unfriendly ads, including a McDonald’s radio spot that stereotyped Pit Bulls
(which the company pulled from the air and apologized for after receiving complaints) and Sketchers’ ad featuring Greyhound racing (which aired during last night’s game despite a Change.org petition with more than 122,000 signatures).
