Ad highlights togetherness in divisive election season

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Election got you down? Pedigree's ad might help.

The dog food company is a surprising hero of this election with their new TV spot, which shows that, even though people may be divided by politics, love can bring them together.

The company did a social experiment where they sent a woman in a Trump t-shirt to a Clinton rally with a lost dog, then reversed it for a Trump rally. The ad showed that, even though people knew they didn't agree politically, they were still happy to help when needed.

"I think fundamentally if you go talk person to person, they care about each other," said one participant.

"Things like this give us hope that we can all find common ground in some places and I think that was what we were just a part of," said another participant.
