Christmas spirits been floating around since Halloween ends. This is the time brands drop the bomb to all the media for their Christmas adverts. Today I decided to pick on Mulberry and talk (perhaps, rant to be exact) about it.
Christmas is about giving and receiving. The advert above is about receiving presents from family members. Yes, you just watched an adult getting pamper by her family, shower with lots and lots of love. Reading the comments in YouTube, I'm pretty aware that most of them are negative.
The first time I watched it, i thought it was just slightly bad. Not too bad, but just a little bit bad thanks to the appearance of a unicorn.
But to think about it again, It wasn't that bad after all.
Here's Why :
If, I'm that girl who's receiving all these present, getting a mulberry bag will make me as happy as she reacts. I mean, come on,
1. A painting of me?
No, shit no. but thanks, and no.
2. A puppy and he waves.
Ok, cause I love dogs.
for the love of god, really?
Taking care of a puppy and now a unicorn, no no no.
4. Mulberry bag.
Yes,yes and yes. something that I can use, finally. Not hanging my pictures to creep people out when they visit. No more burden of taking care of a puppy. A unicorn, still. REALLY. This is just temporary hype. Coming back to a mulberry bag, yes. That will put an authentic and happy smile on my face.
I wouldn't say this is a bad advert, because If I'm that girl, I'll be as happy as she is. It's just being realistic but some might say it's materialistic. One of the comment I've read said Christmas is not about winning, it's the thought that count. To me, among all the presents in the advert, the bag is a thought gift, and a winner.
What do you think?
*Disclaimer : This is just my personal thought. I write this post with no responsibility since the amount of reader I had now is too damn little. But really, It's just a thought ranting how I feel about an advertisement.
