Budweiser uses puppy to send message about drunk driving

The Budweiser puppy is back with a heartwarming message: Don't drink and drive, because your friends (even the furry ones) are waiting.

The PSA features the same Labrador pup that made his debut in the company's Super Bowl commercials this year.

The minute long clip plays back playful moments of friendship between the man and his dog, which include frolics at the lake and park.

Eventually, the man – with Budweiser in hand – gives the dog a good pat on the head on his way out with friends.

The dog is left waiting patiently, and looking incredibly lonely, until the next morning when the man comes home.

"I'm sorry. I decided I shouldn't drive home last night. I stayed at Dave's," he tells the dog.

The video has more than 14 million views on Budweiser's YouTube page.

"Next time you go out, be sure to make a plan to get home safely," the video caption reads. "Your friends are counting on you. Enjoy Budweiser responsibly. #FriendsAreWaiting.
