Super Bowl Sunday features Animals, too!

By on January 31, 2015

With the millions of people around the world who will be turning their attention to the television on Super Bowl Sunday, there’s no wonder Animal Planet, Budweiser and others are attempting to touch their hearts through playing puppies, tiny kittens and emotional commercials.

In the week leading up to the Super Bowl, much buzz has been made about two dog-themed commercials. First, was planning on a commercial in which a lost pup who finally found his way home gets his heartbroken as he learns he’s been sold online. Animal adoption advocates objected to the nature of the commercial saying it promotes practices that aren’t ideal when attempting to place animals in loving homes. Budweiser was a bit more savvy and came up with this gem.

In the hours leading up to the big game, one can fill one’s face with all kinds of tasty treats while watching pundits discuss the merits of a dual-threat quarterback and a cerebral head coach. There will plenty of analysis to be found pre-game. If you are going to be in front of the television but don’t necessarily want to see former coaches and players immersing themselves in a game they aren’t playing in or calling, tune your set over to Animal Planet.
