Internet retailer’s tiny horse commercial goes viral

Share

Internet retailer Amazon Prime has called in the horsepower – or at least a little pony power – to pitch its services to consumers.

The little guy causes big ructions in the latest Amazon Prime commercial.

Its new television commercial features a little horse that has a little trouble fitting in with the big guys and gals in the pasture.

The horse’s owner sorts out the problem with a clever online purchase.

Amazon Prime sells an annual membership which provides a series of benefits to those using Amazon’s online services, ranging from special access to some streamed online content to free shipping on all items bought through the Amazon platform.

    This dwarf horse was on Dr. Chris Pet Vet. He is a therapy horse with a great story!

        It’s not a Shetland, no, it’s a miniature horse affected by dwarfism. Disagree with the use of this horse in the ad, plenty of very small minis, Falabellas and mini Shetlands about, didn’t have to try and make very abnormal conformation seem like it’s ok….the horse has very clear malformations which are obvious to people who know horses. Bad move Amazon.

          So are you saying that only perfect horses should be on TV?
          I disagree. You are entitled to your opinion. I have a dwarf who has attracted friends from over 21 countries. God put them on earth for a reason. Why can’t they have Tv time too?
          I did not breed for dwarfism. the stud is now gelded and the mare has not been re-bred.
          Acer is cute-that is why Amazon used him. I don’t see a problem.

            That is by far my favorite tv commercial right now. He is so cute, and in my opinion, was a right on the money commercial by Amazon that tugged at the heartstrings of America. I have to rewind it some times when it comes on just to see it again, damn cute horse!!

        Read & learn indeed. Shammy posted a video of the commercial on his FB page on Mar 31st. The owner clearly states in the comments that the mini in the commercial is NOT Shammy. How about you take your own advice & stop spreading rumors & false information????

    I’m so sick of this commercial. The song sucks and it comes on way too much. Why is it they have to show it 50 times a night?
