Love was in the air
Valentine’s Day happened this week, and it’s supposedly the most romantic day of the year. Love it or hate it, People still talk about it – be it singles, married, skeptics and what-nots. Heck, I feel it’s more of a commercialized day capitalized by corporations to make more money. Personally, I’m not so against V-day, as long as creative ads like these keep coming.
Created by Advertising Agency Kingsday, Amsterdam in The Netherlands, they made a playful campaign as well as making a statement wherein ‘Saying it with flowers’ is just so 2010.
This campaign was tastefully done and out of all the other V-day campaigns, this is my favourite. Here’s another cheeky one done by BBH, Singapore for IKEA.
Creative ads are not limited to just prints and direct marketing. Here’s one with a video message from the Metro Train Station, famous for their “Dumb Ways to Die” campaign. Though I found this way too close to another fellow youtuber’s video, that was published just one day before. Guess it’s not a very original concept.
So there you go. Love-ly campaigns that are cheeky and funny. Have you received any funny Valentine message this year? I didn’t. I simply celebrated it by stuffing my face with Jelly Hearts and sleeping through a movie in the cinema.
I ordered mine through Ed’s Kitchen! I didn’t take a picture, but they were definitely yummy! If you want to make your own, here’s a recipe! Anyway, till the next post! And happy post-Valentine’s Day….!
