Boo-hoo Over a Subaru

If you haven't been watching TV recently, you probably didn't know that Subaru has been running one of the most heart-breaking commercials in recent memory. The ad is titled "Dream Weekend" and it follows a man and his dog, celebrating the pooch's 14 and 3/4 birthday.  It will only take the viewer a few sad moments to realize why he isn't waiting to celebrate his dog's 15th.

The melancholy strains of Willie Nelson's "I've Loved You All Over The World" wash over the moments onscreen, as we watch the man marks items off his dog's bucket list one by one.

1. Road Trip
2. 100 tennis balls
3. Ferris Wheel
4. Sky diving
5. Beach
6. Old girlfriend
7. Chew a shoe
8. Massage at a hotel
9. Steak dinner
10. Hot air ballooning
11. Breakfast in bed
12. Looping roller coaster
13. (unknown)
14. River rafting
15. Ride a train
16. Sneak into a hotel pool
17. Run in the park
18. Dig a big hole

The commercial ends as the man and his loyal friend enjoy a sunset at the beach- the last item on the list. Watch for yourself:
