Behold The Proshness

Quite probably the best commercial ever made.

    Words fail me ..

  2. I wonder how long it took to film that. 🙂

  3. Brav-OH!!! Outstanding!

    I’m going to run out and buy some Beneful today. And I don’t even have a dog!

  4. That is so cool. I have a rescued greyhound and she would run like the wind beside another dog at the park who was chasing a ball. Once she got to the ball she would have this look of bewilderment on her face – had no idea that you should grab the ball and run. Never did quite get that part of the concept.

    I didn’t notice any cuts, so quite possibly a loooooong time.

    Though there were a couple points where a cart or whatever went mostly offscreen so it could have had a helpful poke.

  6. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Yeah, once the prey drive is satisfied they’re kinda like “why did I want this?”

    Evidently the chase is better than the catch.

  7. Awesome!

  8. Smartypants says:

    LOL, you could give it to a shelter – win-win!

    Our local Humane Society has a pet food bank for owners in need. I love this idea.

  9. One of the best I have seen.

  10. Omg, amazing! Those golden puppehs look pretty confused though…

  11. I was thinking the exact same thing–how many takes were required to get that?! It was definitely worth all of the effort–cute from start to finish.

  12. Ack! Cheetos for dogs should not make the best commercials! *unh* (up on soapbox) “DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG CRUMMY FOOD UNLESS THEY’RE TERMINAL AND WILL EAT NOTHING ELSE!” *ooff* (off soapbox) SO cute of a commercial! 🙂

  13. I didn’t want to be the first to say it but it’s not good food for the pups. It may be the reason that my dog has epilepsy. That being said, it’s a really cute commercial, I just wish their food wasn’t crummy.

    Sometimes this holds true with hoomins, too.

  15. phred's mom says:

    I sent this in knowing Beneful ain’t
    ideal for carnivore canines, but they
    did make a great commercial.

  16. shelliewebster says:

    that was so cute; i think i pulled something…..

  17. The first ingredient in Beneful is corn, 2nd is chicken by-product meal – and it gets worse from there:

  18. “Sometimes”? More like always, I think. “I’ve gotta have that!” more often that not becomes, “Why did I think I wanted that?”

  19. chromekitten says:

    food coloring -especially red 40 and yellow 5 is a known trigger for canine epileptic seizures. my two epileptic dogs were both american eskimo dogs with food coloring triggers. since it’s also a migraine trigger (ow and yes, it really is) i didn’t have it in the house and so didn’t find out about the second dog until the neighbor gave her some dog treats with red 40 in it. you’d be surprised at how common it is in dog treats.

  20. All of these adorable and/or heart-wrenching commercials are promoting crummy food made by companies that sadly don’t have your dog’s best interests in mind.

    Pro Plan’s “I can be great” commercial? Makes me cry. This commercial? Adorably awesome.

    That being said, my advice is to feed your dog a food that doesn’t require a television commercial 😀
