    Yes, Sarah McLachlan Finds Her Iconic ASPCA Commercials Just as “Brutal” to Watch As We Do – E! Online


    Everyone’s heartstrings have been tugged by the ASPCA’s emotional TV commercials, including star Sarah McLachlan.

    Set to her emotional 1997 ballad “Angel” and featuring shots of sad-looking pets, the singer exclusively told E! News on Feb. 9 that the long-running ads are “brutal” for an important reason: so that viewers “bring the wallet out.”

    “I will do whatever it takes to help,” she told E! News co-hosts Adrienne Bailon-Houghton and Justin Sylvester. “And I think that ad generated like 30 million dollars for the ASPCA in two years, and it still gets played.”

    But for as melancholy as they are to watch, the 55-year-old said the ads were anything but hard to film, as the only difficult part was getting her canine co-star to calm down.

    “It couldn’t settle,” she said of one of the commercial’s dogs, “so that was challenging.”

    The Grammy winner had a similar experience filming with a wolf for her brand-new Super Bowl commercial with Busch Light, which pokes fun at her memorable ASPCA ads.
