It’s rare that a TV commercial pulls at your heartstrings and stays with you after watching it, but that’s exactly what this new commercial got out of me.
In an advertisement entitled “Mop Dog,” by ad agency Deutsch LA, Dr. Pepper tells us, “Be true to yourself and you’ll never be lost.”
Meet Mop Dog, who is shunned by the world and alone. Mop Dog is a Puli — a Hungarian breed that develops natural dread locks or “cords” giving it a distinct, comical appearance — who roams the streets in search of a home. He lives on the streets with nowhere to go, and no one to love him.
But on this particular day, the handsome pooch gets a brand new lease on life, and an unlikely forever friend — a Dr. Pepper truck driver — who finally accepts and loves him.
Get your tissues ready!
