Subaru has launched a new TV ad, ‘Dream weekend’, dedicated to man’s best friend.

The Japanese automaker’s minute-long spot follows a bucket-list road trip enjoyed by a man and his dog, set to ‘I’ve Loved You All Over The World’ by Willie Nelson.

As the two best friends traverse the countryside in a Subaru Impreza, they are finally able to experience all the things they have always dreamt of doing – including a bittersweet reunion with the dog’s long-lost love and a never-ending game of catch.

Alan Bethke, vice-president of marketing for Subaru said the “touching” video aims to highlight the indescribable bond between pet-owners and their canines, and “the adventurous Subaru Impreza that is with them through it all.”

Produced by agency of record Carmichael Lynch and directed by award-winning-director Noam Murro, the campaign is part of the brand’s wider #MakeADogsDay social initiative which encourages dog lovers to do even more for their pets, and to share their ideas with the world.

Come together, stand apart. That’s our how and our why, neatly wrapped up so we never lose sight of what we’re here to do every day: come together with the best people from every discipline to make the very best brand-building, culture-bending, business-altering work for our partners.

We’re fortunate to have the best of all disciplines here at Carmichael Lynch, from creative to PR, strategy to media, analytics and production, as well as a remarkable on-premise content studio. Whether a challenge is big or small, requires long-term planning or newsroom agility, those levers are at the ready.

It’s also how we work with our partners: together. We’re not big on dramatic work reveals here. We’ve found time and time again that working in tandem has led to better results, more surprising work, and a deeper understanding of what to do next.

All of which is in service of helping you and your brand stand apart. All the integration in the world is moot if it gets lost in a sea of sameness. Our brand partners are known to stand out from their competition, stand out from their categories, and maybe — most importantly — stand out in the hearts and minds of their audience and consumers. By doing so, they’re able to be not just observers of culture, but authors of it, too
