Either way, we’ve collected a few stories from the past week that are guaranteed to warm you up! If Ikea’s Valentine’s Day ad doesn’t make you blush, we don’t know what will…

Facebook’s New Ads Focus On The Importance Of Connecting Through Friendship

Booking.com Shows Us Our Destiny Is Often In The Details
Online travel agent Booking.com released a new 60-second spot that follows the crazy life of a man who’s destiny depended on a hostel that he booked while travelling abroad.

Placement of Pizza Brand’s Outdoor Ads Are Purposely Hard To Notice
As a way to cleverly emphasize the delicious taste of their dairy-free pizza, this campaign from Daiya Foods (launched by agency TDA_Boulder) has designed and discreetly placed ads that make you notice them.

IKEA’s Cheeky Valentine’s Day Ad Doesn’t Disappoint
In addition to the standard chocolates and flowers that we’ve all come to look forward to, it is, once again the annual ad from furniture retailer Ikea that never seems to disappoint! You may recall their ad from 2013 that offered a voucher for a free cot to any baby born on November 14th, 2013 (exactly nine months to the day from Valentine’s Day). Their Valentine’s Day ad from last year was also a hit as it featured two chairs (suggestively) stacked on top of each other wishing all a Happy Valentine’s Day. Well, it appears that Ikea is at it again this year with their cheeky ad that introduces their new line of “beds”. Oh Ikea, how we love thee!
