One Minute Briefs Advertise: Fifty Shades of Grey

fifty shades of grey ad

Just like millions of other people, I to have read Fifty Shades of Grey – yes all three books. Above is my idea/entry for One Minute Briefs to advertise the film. Using film genres/jargon I opted to focus on how the film wasn’t just a romantic chick-flick – as most of us know there’s quite a bit of action!


Odd Love Story Ad From Interflora

Despite this ad being for Denmark it has captured attention from all around the world, with a charming but odd love story which has a surprising twist. The ad shows the love a gothic boy has for a popular preppy girl. But I’ll honestly admit, (along with a large percentage of others who have watched this ad) I did not expect the ending. What’s also great is there is no dialogue in the advert at all which makes it universally appealing and who doesn’t love a good love story? It was also refreshing not to see a bouquet of flowers feature in the advert either, which I imagine was a risk for a florist brand to take but I believe this makes the brand even more appealing and the ad more charming.
