Touching Budweiser Commercial Featuring Worried Dog Goes Viral

Chances are good that you saw this video pop up in your Facebook feed this weekend. If not, you’ll want to take a minute to watch this special message from Budweiser, posted for Global Be(er) Responsible Day.

"Friends Are Waiting,” which has more than 6 million views on YouTube, shows how much fun a guy and his best pal, a yellow Lab, have together.

Then we see how the loyal, worried dog waits — and waits — for his owner to come home after he goes out drinking with his friends. "For some," the ad warns, "the waiting never ended."

Thankfully, the dog’s BFF makes it home the next morning and apologizes to the pooch, telling him he stayed at a friend’s place because he’d had too much to drink and knew he couldn't drive home safely.

We're entirely behind Budweiser's sweet and important message, but we do want to add our own 2 cents on being responsible: Don’t forget about your dog. If there’s a chance you’re going to be out all night, arrange for someone to check on him, just in case. Because he's waiting for you — and probably worrying a little bit, too.
