Once again, Thailand has brought us another tearful commercial, and I promise that this new one is sure to tug at your heartstrings like no other, particularly if you’re a dog lover. This video has acquired almost two million YouTube views in less than one month.
The ad, for Krungthai Bank, relates the story of how a young lady decided to become a veterinarian. In it, she recalls the time in her life when she was afraid of her neighbor’s dog, Olieng. At first she thinks that the dog is vicous, but all he was really doing was protecting his owner, an old lady with no one to look after her.
One day, as the girl arrives home, she sees that the old woman is being taken away on a stretcher, covered with a white sheet. From that day on, the girl passes by this grieving dog, who’s obviously waiting for his owner to come home.
Olieng is depressed and won’t eat anything, but the girl continues to bring him food every day anyway. Eventually, Olieng begins to open his heart to the girl and she opens hers to him in return. She adopts the lonely pup, and the two become the best of friends.
Each day, Olieng waits at the bus stop for his new owner to come home from school. But, on one fateful day, when the girl gets off of the bus, Olieng is no where to be found.
