February is a notoriously short month and is mostly enveloped in a mass of chocolate and flowers. In fact, here’s how we think a conversation with February would go:
You: How’s it going, February?
February: Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
You: Happy Valentine’s Day to you, too.
You: Boy that January sure doesn’t know when to leave a party, am I right?
You: February, you there?
Operator: The person you’re trying to reach is no longer available.
So to the romantic creating wedding boards on Pinterest, the cynic who makes a barfing sound when people express love, and the marketer looking for inspiration for a Valentine’s Day ad or email campaign, this one’s for you, with love from February.
There is no doubt that this ad is sure to bring back so many memories for so many people. Memories of being in that awkward high school phase, hoping and praying for a candy gram. Memories of appearing to be the only single person in the world on Valentine’s Day such that every person you pass by is receiving a dozen roses or gifting someone heart-shaped candy. Memories of being doe-eyed and in love. And oftentimes, ads that make people feel are ads that make people act.
P.S. How many quarters do you need to save a year to afford a ring from Pandora? Will going to the Laundromat only once a month help?
