Grab your tissues, Budweiser’s ‘Best Buds’ are back for this year’s Super Bowl.

The beer company has become a master of pulling America’s heartstrings with its Super Bowl commercials, and this year is no different.

(And yes, that’s a version of the Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” as the soundtrack. No doubt even the brothers Reid are weeping.)

Eight puppies – seven females and one male – play the dog in the ad, all of which were just 11-12 ½ weeks old at the time of filming, according to a release.

Seven Budweiser Clydesdales underwent training for three months to fine-tune their skills for the commercial.
