Chevy’s Tearjerker Dog Ad: What Do You Think?

To sustain this free service, we receive affiliate commissions via some of our links. This doesn’t affect rankings. Our review process.

Whether you’ve seen the ad yet or not, you will want to because it is part of an interesting controversy and heart-wrenching (and/or heartwarming) story.

This story of Maddie and her owner’s life with her dog is a loving testament to how our dog is there for so many of life’s important moments – from the start to the finish. SPOILER ALERT: The dog dies in the end – just like in real life. Which might be why Chevy has not actually run the ad yet on TV. It was one of the finalists for their Oscar ad last weekend but did not make the final cut.

But, we want to know what YOU think. Is this a terrible ad or a good one? As a real-life dog-lover your opinion matters more than anyones.
