The Uptown Community advertisement features a very melancholy black lab who appears to be crying with the words “Diamond thinks her name is 'Stupid'" written in bold white font. It also displays text discussing that people are eager to help abused animals in distress, but not children.

The ad certainly does evoke a lot of emotion from the viewer. Stats for Selling With Crying Dogs Trending: Older & Average
