    Re: Is it really that bad?

    As far as advertising goes it was dumb for an American commercial.

    Don't **** with dogs in America. It's like a cardinal rule.

    There's a reason why aliens can drop a friggin extraterrestrial nuke in New York exploding millions...but the film makers will make sure the dog can leap into an alleyway and survive. It's why someone who runs over a and kills a guy while drunk can come back into the NFL with little attention and Mike Vick is still routinely spoken about with scorn. Americans love their dogs, and the basis of the humor here is just not going to register as funny for the average American....and the commercial has little redeeming qualities as an ad without the humor factor for a large part of it's audience (since the end kills the one other possibly avenue with the awwww factor).

    So in other words, you got nothing. No argument, no substance, nothing.

    Don't bother responding.

    All you have to do is look in the first 6 pages of this thread to see how silly this entire exchange has been because you refuse to read. Here, I'll make it easy for you. Read posts #12 and posts #47. Can you do that?

    What we need is more government intervention against things that might happen based on a fictional representation in an ad.

    An entire bureaucracy needs to be established this instant to monitor all advertising, especially anything that might be seen by children or drunken fools watching a football game. Who knows what horrible things might come out of an inadvertent lapse.

    No wonder Atavan is so popular. Can't watch cute puppies without fretting about the social consequences.

    I wonder if any puppies are dying in Syria?

    Offensive? No. Terrible advertising? Yes.
    Now we have truth!

    For the life of me, never having heard of this company before, I have not one idea what they are selling me...the message I get is that if you sell **** with them, it doesn't stay sold.

    And why not Craig's List? They don't victimize puppies

    I reckon they pulled it because Budweiser did a really really similar one but with a happy ending.

    Personally I'm glad they pulled it. But they paid mega bucks for a commercial during the Super Bowl. Curious to what it will look like.

    Good lord. I didn't want to read the entire 6 page thread because I thought it would be a waste of my time, and, having now read your two earlier posts (#12 and #47), I see that I was totally right. I did waste my time.

    Your entire argument, which you think sums up this entire thread, is that the current state of dog-breeding is inhumane because dogs are bred just for their looks.

    I got news for you, buddy. If YOU don't want to buy a dog for its looks or disposition or whatever other reason people buy purebreds, that's YOUR PERSONAL DECISION. Have fun with that. However, if I or anyone else wants to buy a dog for whatever reason I want, including the way it looks, that's my right as an American.

    Like I said from the beginning, there is NOTHING wrong with dog breeding, horse breeding, or any other kind of animal breeding. If you think there is, that's nothing but bleeding heart foolishness, and you might as well become a vegetarian because, you know, EVERY meat-producing land animal that we commonly eat in America has been BRED in to its current state.

    You are taking this way too seriously...and that's what's silly.
