I had some problems with it. My first thought was that the guy is kind of old. Would they really use his organs? But maybe they would. A more serious objection might be the fact that the woman would still be very immune-suppressed when the dog comes up to her.

I doesn't do much for me, but I guess others may find it affecting.

This seems somewhat relevant to the question of the man's age.

http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S0101-28002013000400009&script=sci_arttext&tlng=en

The average age of deceased donors was 40.2 years and stroke was the leading cause of death (54.9%). The donor maintenance parameters analysis shows that 90.2% received a vasoactive drug at the time of evaluation and 15% had had a cardiac arrest reversed (Table 1). In addition, 70% had hypernatremia (Na > 145 mEq/l); 66.6% had elevated creatinine phosphokinase and 34.8% had kidney failure (creatinine > 1.5 mg/dl) (data not shown). The kidneys were transplanted within a mean cold ischemia time of 23.2 (Table 1).

The accompanying table shows 53 donors over 60 years old.

But whether this ad works is more of a personal preference than anything else. I agree with the message that it is good to help someone else out with the organs, but the presentation just seems too simplistic.
