I am what we might refer to as an ad fan-boy.
I love old ads and crazy marketing campaigns and I love special holidays and events because, often, the big brands create some amazing and hilarious marketing campaigns such as for the Superbowl.
In this fun article, we’ll look at some of my favorite Valentine’s day marketing campaigns.
There were many great ads that didn’t make the cut simply because I can’t include everything. With the ideas in this article, I avoided campaigns that were specifically focused on social media, like a simple post on Instagram or Facebook.
Instead, I steered towards campaigns that had a video recorded showing a real-life guerilla-marketing campaign or otherwise had a video created since that tend to give us more storytelling and context around the big idea and concept.
