SummerGSDLover This whole thread cracked me up. The commercial was cute. Note: My nine year old looked over at me last night after seeing that dog riding commercial and he said (about the rude kid) "If I ever talked to you like that, I wouldn't be able to sit down." LOL I haven't spanked him since he was four! I think peoples kids are going to think about it but wouldn't try it. Maybe they would but MY kids won't. They know it would hurt their babies.

Oisin's Aoire Also to consider - children are not the target audience of a game that runs until 11pm on a school night.

I showed my daughter the commercial on you tube because I knew she would not agree with it.

Realistically though if a kid caught that ad during the Superbowl , and is immature enough to not know the difference between reality and fake commercials , and is left alone with a dog that they may try to ride , there are numerous layers of parental ineptness going on there . I do not think it is Dorito's responsibility to make sure they are covering all bases and that people might "try that at home" . Think of all the things on TV ,on the internet ..you have to police yourself and your own kids. We do not have the right nor the ability to micromanage large corporations . Boycott products that insult you with their message . If enough people are angry enough the marketing department will tweak on it.

Oisin's Aoire I thought the Dorito commercial was ignorant . My daughter is 7 , I asked her if she thought a little kid riding Greta ( our English Mastiff) would be ok and she said no , that could hurt her. She also pointed out that the kid was being a brat for not helping and that is not how family members treat each other . Guess I am able to teach her right from wrong despite all of the evil influences out there. EWWWWW that was hard.

I could care less if Doritos made commercials about living the gangster life ..I just would not buy any of their products. Your dollars speak the loudest . My kids are taught that too. We don't buy from X because the support or cause Y .

Like training dogs , every situation can become a teaching moment. You can control what you teach your kids , it is so much easier and more productive than censorship.

Send an email to Doritos that you thought their commercial was awful .

As for the horses? Really reading into things too much. It was a cute puppy who found a horse and home he loved , they went out of their way to put "rescue" on the sign in an attempt to promote adoption regardless of how realistic the situation was portrayed to be. Meh , in my opinion nothing to see here , move along.

Wondering whether I stood there and watched it happened is not the same as wondering what I did about it after it happened. One is during the moment and the other is after the moment.

And I found your assumption cruel because you found it more believable that I would stand around and do nothing when something like that to happen to my dog than for someone being stupid enough to do it.

And I got angry. What kind of answer were you expecting?

My BIL sat on my dog, my dog sat down from the weight, and my BIL slipped down and fell on his ass. There was no time to allow or disallow anything unless I had telepathy to know what he was going to do prior to his actions.

llombardo I love the Budweiser commercial. I liked the music , the setting, and the meaning. Anyone who has had a dog pick them can understand the idea of the commercial. That puppy found his best friend and that was sweet in itself. Not once did I think about the puppies being from a rescue or breeder. That is really over thinking a commercial.
