This Ikea Ad about the Bond between 2 Dogs Is Powerfully Moving
Ogilvy Greece created this tear-jerking ad for Ikea Greece. The ad, which is just 90 seconds manages to tell a powerful story that would take you through an emotional rollercoaster. If you are a dog lover then this ad would have you wailing. The ad tells the story of a dog who’s adopted by a loving family. That’s great right? Well, the catch is that he has to leave his best friend behind. We see the dog try to adjust to its new home without his best friend. We also see his best friend try to adjust to life without him. The whole story plays out in a very emotional and tear-jerking way.
The soundtrack of the ad is “(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story,” originally featured as an instrumental for the 1970 movie Love Story and recorded with lyrics shortly after by Andy Williams. According to Ogilvy Greece, they plan to continue to run the campaign over the coming months. They plan to show other scenarios in which an Ikea-furnished home is the setting for unexpected experiences.
