For some people Valentine’s Day has lost its meaning – they think that it is a celebration that has become too commercialized. For others, the 14th of February is the most romantic day of the year that when celebrated, gives extra significance to the relationship.
No matter which way you sway, Valentine’s Day will always be a reminder to the masses of how we all can always empathize with lost loves, and envy the relationships that do last. With V-Day just around the corner, here are some creative print ads and video commercials that drive that reminder home. May you find the love you deserve this Valentine’s Day.
