The dog in the Boar's Head meat TV commercial, where a JR watched the delivery of the meats to the walk-in refrigerator. He then jumped up trying to reach the hanging rolls of meat, realized he couldn't reach them, so he pushed a few boxes next to the taller boxes to make steps, ran up to the top and leaped off to grab onto one of the hanging meats. The deliveryman comes back later; the JR is still holding on and doesn't let go. We're waiting for a sequel to this commercial.
