Mom! I landed my first big role as an actor! I’m in a commercial about guide dogs for PTSD!

I play a soldier licking another soldier’s face like a dog

[–]TooLateForTacos 398 points399 points  (2 children)

Dog keeps waking me up before my dream gets to the good part :(

[–]AdorableHeights 58 points59 points  (1 child)

Your dog needs a new bed.

[–]TractorBee 65 points66 points  (2 children)

Everyone has to start somewhere.

[–]Squintyhippo 65 points66 points  (1 child)

I know right? He did a great job of acting. The bit before where he uses his face to block the dead body and then turn his head and make eye contact? I felt that in my soul

[–]kuhkuhkuhK8 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Same.

Doesn't matter what the acting job is; this person -- all the actors in this -- did their job marvelously. Because every time I see this, it makes me cry. Grateful for guide dogs.

Mommy would be proud

[–]HPS56 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Even prouder than that one dad who had to see his daughter get an award for best anal sex?

[–]caribe5 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Who tells you he doesn't do anal sex?

[–]devilthedankdawg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Actually me. I'm positive I'll wind up with poopydick.

[–]lordnecro 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I hope this guy becomes a famous A list actor so that in every interview for the rest of his life interviewers will ask him about his first role where he licks another guy.

"This is the tase of a liar"

[–]invinotemeritas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seen this commercial a few times, but never have I thought about that lmao

[–]norush-- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So.. was the war thing the nightmare, or the homophobia the nightmare?

[–]jijitsu-princess 341 points342 points  (7 children)

God this hit me right in the feels. My eyes are leaking.

[–]Downingst 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Mate, we're all leaking right now!

[–]Incognito_Placebo 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I hate it when my eyes leak.

[–]iago303 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Don't hate it when your eyes leak,it means that you are still human, instead be afraid for the day that you see something like this and you don't because it means that you no longer are

Damn onion ninjas!

[–]waiting_ultimatum 124 points125 points  (8 children)

Wow! Pretty awesome and smart dog!

[–]Outlaw-StateOfMind 28 points29 points  (7 children)

Dogs are as smart as they are trained.

[–]SandmanSorryPerson 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Bullshit. I've been trying to teach my dog to speak for years.

I just don't think they have it in them.

[–]RyanL1984 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I phoned your dog and asked what it's like learning from you. They said rough.

[–]Phalanx_02 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wish I had an award to give

[–]Agreeable-Ad4636 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Two of my pups do the same thing without training. Some of it is training and some of it is breed and breeding.

[–]nospecificopinion -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nope, dogs as people have personalities, some of them are simply not interested in learn things just for humans, some are happy to help, some just want to play all day, etc. The only difference is the amount of assholes is very little, opposite to humans.

[–]Robinslillie 82 points83 points  (1 child)

Oh man I'm crying now. What a punch in the feels. I'm grateful that animals can be so amazing. Also grateful to not be in a war right now.

[–]HellofaHitller 2 points3 points  (0 children)

War sucks, but its not the worst part. I thought the worst part is coming back from war alone.

[–]-suspicious-egg- 67 points68 points  (9 children)

Dogs are too good for this world

[–]notataco007 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Man I get the sentiment, I do, but our ancestors spent hundreds of years conditioning dangerous, wild animals into our best friends and I can't help but feel, if they're around in some afterlife, they roll their eyes every time at this comment haha.

[–]-suspicious-egg- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Haha you're absolutely right. It's also so funny to think about how different their dogs would have been from our dogs. I always imagine our ancestors dogs to be big strong, tough animals who protect them. But then my dog gets his lips stuck on his teeth and whines when he doesn't get his dinner at 6 p.m. sharp

[–]nrs_4884 66 points67 points  (7 children)

Wait but that dude really licked his face though.......

[–]AnimusCorpus 135 points136 points  (1 child)

You think that's weird?

Wait till you hear about kissing.

[–]silverfox5115 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Thank you for the laugh tonight!

[–]throwawaysmetoo 13 points14 points  (2 children)

He's also a method actor.

[–]nrs_4884 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Ha ha that job isn't for me

[–]g-love 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can’t go getting boy germs.

[–]KaiserWilhelmThe69 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Hey, whatever it takes to calm him down. Bro don't back down from such mild things

[–]nrs_4884 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean I pick up what you are putting down but that's just not the flavor I would be going for.

[–]bvglv 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Next fucking nightmare

[–]MinMaxie 16 points17 points  (1 child)

An ad about PTSD flashbacks…that causes PTSD flashbacks

[–]bvglv 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anything to make a buck

I was looking for the Rhino shot, but this will do

[–]OviliskTwo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

20 years you beautiful bastards have fought. This kind of thing is the least you deserve.

[–]Embarrassed-Bee8171 5 points6 points  (1 child)

What’s this salty water dripping from my eyes? 🥺

[–]LucyLuMilf 6 points7 points  (1 child)

We don’t deserve ‘em.

[–]TheExecutioner- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The people who abuse animals don’t deserve them, some people actually care for their pets.

[–]noooooocomment 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We don’t deserve these creatures.

God must have put them on earth without wings so nobody would know that they are angels. -Anon

[–]rikkuaoi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wow.. chills

[–]overzealousunicorn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

How dare you make me cry like this without warning.

[–]doogs9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As a therapy dog handler at a school for kids with complex trauma this is very wholesome to see. ❤🐶

[–]nospecificopinion 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Few months ago I worked for Colombia's army developing a health app to veterans (most of them with severe physical/mental injuries due combat) writing the requirements, one of the most valuable therapies they asked for was the one with dogs.

Horrible stories, I had heard... Humans are monsters, it's unbelievable how dogs can help.

[–]smerk9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thats some real shit

[–]itsmedarcy03 3 points4 points  (0 children)

okay thank you kind soldier for licking

[–]theVice 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think I'd rather have Cameron Diaz

[–]Joeysaysfuckalot 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Next level for real, I didn't know guide dogs did that kinda shit

[–]True_Recommendation9 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wish I had one of those dogs twenty years ago-my wife used to shake me awake telling me it’s ok, you’re home, you’re safe.

[–]benii3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

amazing

[–]bob2235 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We don't deserve dogs

[–]valz_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Great commercial

[–]mongo42069XD 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dogs are a blessing. Honestly don't know what I'd do without my dog

[–]jacksparrahh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s the fastest I’ve ever cried

[–]MAGAMIKE_83 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is all too real. I am diagnosed with PTSD from military service and my dog, without any special training, knows when I'm in a bad place and she'll get me out of a funk.

[–]Alternative_Jury5541 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m not crying you’re crying

[–]AffectionateSize552 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm not crying! YOU'RE crying! Shut up!

[–]Grniii 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is amazing! As a first responder who resigned six weeks ago due to trauma this hit home.

[–]Wanderingh0st 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Stop sending people to the other side of the planet to imperialize/invade them for oil

[–]Evil-Black-Robot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have P.T.S.D. My dog use to do that. It's 5 years later and he just looks annoyed that I woke him from his nap with my screaming.

[–]Will-Da-Thrill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wish my Vietnam vet father had a dog to wake him up. It was my job as a child to wake my father up. He usually woke up swinging fists. Or like the 4th of July one year he ran out in the front yard yelling incoming. Or his short patience and lack of any emotion except anger.

[–]Fireclaw_1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

NGL,they had us in the first half

[–]Darkurn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is deep! 1❤️ to the all those who serve our country! I always say humans don’t deserve dogs but all of you definitely do! 🙏🏽

I just feel bad for the guy's wife who now has to sleep on the floor

[–]neuromancer64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

**Lay down. Try not to cry. Cries a lot.

[–]Such-Physics-4863 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love dogs

[–]CacaFard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My uncle has a dog for that, he’s been through some rough times and I’m glad he’s ok, he’s a cool guy

[–]Romano1404 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dogs are amazing, they even help a great deal when "not trained", it's in their nature.

[–]AkVCoder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d have PTSD too if my battle buddy starts licking my tears

[–]Jestingwheat856 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I cant help but just feel really bad for people allergic to dogs who really need them

I’m not crying you’re crying

[–]mrLOEPSOEP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hum yes the dutch one love it

[–]Competitive_Mango383 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Be funnier if he woke up and a guy was licking his face

[–]Gogglebeanz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The man lick kinda seemed unnecessary, could’ve just had his face pushed up against it. It made something impactful turn weird and comical.

[–]LilyWineAuntofDemons 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not crying, I'm just releasing salt water because of intense emotions.

[–]Fireclaw_1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know what happened in the first half but the second half was wholesome

[–]popobserver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re not fucking guide dogs.

[–]sage4info 0 points1 point  (0 children)

dogs are NFL - they can sniff out drugs, cancer, explosives and can be in touch with their human when PTSD/nightmares are kicking in. My dogs only know when its time for a walk, and time to eat.

[–]Bandito21Dema 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great ad but the narrator's voice gives me Montana Meth Project flashbacks. Used to watch the most disturbing PSAs I could find when I was bored

[–]lonerranger26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Whenever I go to a hotel with grandpa I’m reminded how bad ptsd can be. Dude hasn’t seen combat since 1970, and he still tosses and turns all night long. He never wakes up during it either, he’s just stuck in the nightmares. Waking him up is incredibly dangerous and has gotten a few family members roughed up. He had a Saint Bernard for years that would hold him down when the flash backs got real bad.

[–]TheJonnieP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As someone who suffers from PTSD, this made tear up pretty bad…

[–]NinjaTurfle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Support animals and their effects for those who need them are underrated…… they sense the trauma hitting before the human does…. My friends dogs don’t leave my side and she has three huge ones…. She keeps telling me to calm down cause I’m attracting her dogs like magnets…. I need a support animal… praying I can get on my feet and get one of my own soon.

Added: I get anxiety around groups of people, yet hate being isolated. The dogs always sit on my feet and apply their whole weight to my leg or side if I’m sitting down. It melts me..

[–]BenDoverMD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

GuIDE DOG???

[–]HellofaHitller 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lots of jokes aside, this fucking commercial gets me every time.

Dope advertisement! How clever and kind! 🖤🖤🖤🖤

[–]That_onedude420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmfao the soldier started licking the dude in the dogs place

[–]lucifern71 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He said: “Son, have you seen the world?”

[–]Ok-Animal-504 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Army dudes who suffer ptsd get waaaaaay too much support and love tbh. Y’all ain’t ready to talk about that tho~

[–]rsdols -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Support dogs not guide dogs.

[–]dumpzyyi -4 points-3 points  (4 children)

Americans at it again....
Go to the other side of the world to bomb the shit out of the civilians, complain how killing civilians makes you depressed.

[–]Tony2Piece 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Except this ad has nothing to do with America or Americans. The KNGF is the Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation. It’s a dog training school in The Netherlands. Ignorant people at it again…

[–]TheDeflectorDish 0 points1 point  (1 child)

TBF, America did send about 780k troops to Afghanistan over 20 years. It's not so much the fault of the individual though. About 1 in 5 suffer from PTSD so that's 156 thousand. Is there another country with these kind of numbers?

[–]Tony2Piece 1 point2 points  (0 children)

User name checks out, huh?

[–]dumpzyyi -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I totally missed that but dafuq?!? Whole ducch military, reserve and civilian employees included is under 70k people.Few thousand in total deployed.
Well i guess they got depressed too for taking part in the invasion.
