The Man and the Dog for Organ Donation (video)

In “The Man and the Dog,” an elderly man and his dog are inseparable — the dog waits outside a café while his owner has coffee, snuggles up next to him on the couch and nudges him to wake up in the morning — until one day, the man is rushed to the hospital. The dog chases the ambulance and waits outside, as night passes and even through rain, but there’s no sign of the man’s return. Finally, a woman comes out in a wheelchair, and the dog rushes to meet her, as if he’s known her forever.

“Become an organ donor,” the commercial says.

The ad is for Argentina’s Liver Transplant Foundation, but its message is clear across the world, and many viewers said they were in tears after watching.
