Super Bowl: Is it a beer commercial or a puppy commercial?
First Published Jan 29 2014 12:25 pm • Last Updated Jan 29 2014 11:16 pm

Budweiser is exploiting the cute factor in a Super Bowl XLVIII spot, "Puppy Love."

The commercial, released a few days before the big game, is getting tons of attention for a Clydesdale and puppy friendship. Adweek called it a "sequel of sorts" to the company’s Clydesdale and trainer spot last year, called "Brotherhood." The spot was the most shared video of the 2013 Super Bowl, according to Business Week.

This won’t be Budweiser’s only ad in the Super Bowl. The brewing company also released, among others, a teaser for "Hero’s Welcome."

Budweiser began using Clydesdales in 1933 to celebrate the end of prohibition. Dogs, especially Dalmatians are were traditionally used a "carriage" dogs to keep horses company and run between the wheels of carriages.
