Football on Valetine’s Day?

on February 9, 2010 by Martina Comments

And if you want to go even more trash for Valetine’s Day, try this website by Puma. What do you do when Valentine’s Day falls on game day?

The English version is nice. The Italian one… not sure I want to receive a video that from my boyfriend… looks a bit too menacing…

Happy Valentine’s day… from Ford

on February 13, 2006 by Martina Comments

In Belgium, Ford allows users to send special Valentine’s SMS with branded love messages for uninspired lovers. Actually Ford gives people the opportunity to send free personalized messages, but if someone is (sadly) out of ideas, some suggestions are provided. For example: “Vandaag ligt de FOCUS op mijn liefde voor jou en als bewijs stuur ik je duizenden kusjes“… which means (if my Dutch is still good enough) something like “Today the fire (FOCUS) of my love is for you and as a sign I send you thousand kisses”…

Be my Valentine

on February 13, 2005 by Martina Comments

There isn’t much out there to “celebrate” Valentine’s day online. After last year’s Love Tatoo I would have expected to find more viral ideas playing with the Valetine’s concept. I just found out about this online game by Indian agency Innoken which has launched “Be My Valentine” (which isn’t exactly an advergame). In Italy, icecream brand Algida has created a special site for “San Valentino” promoting its Magnum icecream as a Forbidden Fruit. Virgin Mobile Australia has launched a viral campaign for Valentine’s day, called Dr. Date (via Random Culture). There is something more in the mobile industry. In Germany Mindmatics has created Valentine Loveline for T-Mobile and Douglas Parfumeries and Enpocket has partnered with Sprint and to present a Valentine’s sweepstake (and promote a new mobile dating service).

Valentine’s Day on Lycos

on February 11, 2005 by Martina Comments

Valentine’s Day searches have increased 172 percent over the past week. It seems like women are short of ideas for this year’s presents. Lycos says while Valentine’s gifts for him made the top 10 list of most popular Valentine’s Day-related searches, Valentine’s gifts for her did not. In fact, searches for gifts for him are four times more popular than gifts for her. The other reason might be that men have already bought a Trilogy for their loved women and don’t need other ideas… I’m trying to convince myself this is the reason, not the fact they aren’t going to buy any present Here you can also check out the most popular Valentine’s Day search terms.

Chocolate brand Ferrero celebrates Valentine’s Day in Italy with a dedicated web site. The site presents Ferrero’s products Valentine’s special edition (Mon Cheri, Rocher, Raffaello), a love trivia, and some editorial content with excerpts from famous love stories in the literature (Lancelot and Ginevra, Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra).
