Best examples of Native Advertising - 40 Love for Cornetto Cupidity series, directed by Lloyd Lee Choi, produced by The Herd

Posted on at

What do tennis, love and Lily Allen have to do with ice cream? Not much, you would think. Well, Cornetto begs to differ and proves it in a 8-minute short film, the latest addition to its Cupidity Love series, now known as one of the best examples of native advertising videos.







In 40 LoveLily Allen (aka Cupid) narrates the love story of Debbie, a Tennis line judge, and Maria, up-and-coming Tennis star. The Cornetto logo only appears as a sponsor of the tennis game, perfectly visually placed in the story, yet almost unnoticeable. The film, directed by Lloyd Lee Choi, is produced by The Herd Films, and created by Mofilm agency. Touching and funny moments - when Debbie becomes an Internet sensation and "meme" after she's been hit by a tennis ball - alternate to create the kind of short story that couldn't look less like a commercial...and that's what we like and want to see more often!
