#Budweiser highlight how easy a #Puppy can get #Lost…. #SuperBowl

GoDaddy lose out trying to promote a Buddy of their own.

Social media went into overdrive today in response to the #GoDaddyPuppy TVC ad made for the SuperBowl in the USA.  It highlighted a number of negative messages around pet transportation, puppy breeders and selling pets online.  Thankfully GoDaddy have pulled the ad, after garnering much attention and free publicity, and they have a back up plan to put to air.

The best back up plan I think GoDaddy should deploy is running the #TheLucyBowl PSA created by The Lucy Pet Foundation; to highlight the terrible practise of euthanasia and encouraging people to save pet lives through adoption from rescue shelters.  I initially suggested to the CEO & CMO of GoDaddy that they could repurpose their ad by re-shooting the end; with the puppy being scanned for a microchip and being reunited with its family via a site like WherePetsAreFound.com.  I now realise this would be too similar to Budweiser’s theme, so I hope they do put their money behind The Lucy Pet Foundation.

While it doesn’t involve the internet or the power of social media, the Budweiser “Lost Dog” ad does highlight a number of ways in which a pet can get lost.  I encourage everyone to watch it and be mindful of how easily they could lose their pets… Well done Budweiser for increasing public awareness of the risks.
